The Story:
Swiggies, Wrist Water Bottles After passing out from dehydration while running I decided to come up with a hydration product that was hands-free. I came up with Swiggies, wrist water bottles.

It took many years of development and financing to get them on the market. Now they are sold in over 20 countries and were a NASDAQ product of the year semi finalist.

They were also approved by Child Safe International as a safe, "green" product. Julie and Swiggies have been featured in dozens of magazines, TV shows, newspapers and radio shows around the world.
