The Gadget Bottle was created for the purpose of being able to carry and use a hand held electronic device(s) (e.g, mobile phone, portable music player, two-way radio, GPS . . . ) while performing activities (e.g., running, bicycling, walking, nordic skiing, alpine skiing, snowboarding, in-line skating . . . ) without having to carry a separate beverage bottle and the above mentioned electronic device(s). The user can place the electronic device(s) in the indented pocket(s) on the side of a Gadget Bottle and secure the electronic device(s) to the Gadget Bottle with the band and groove fastening system, see the bands and grooves in FIG. 1 Item 5 and FIG. 3 Item 2. See the pockets on FIG. 1 Item 2, FIG. 4 Item 1, FIG. 8 Items 1 &2, FIG. 10 Item 3. While performing the above mentioned activities it is difficult to grab a hand held device(s) from a jacket, shirt or pant pocket and operate the electronic device(s). It is usually easier to grab a larger item like a beverage bottle. By securing the electronic device(s) to a Gadget Bottle you can have a better grip on the Gadget Bottle and operate the electronic device(s) without removing them from the Gadget Bottle's indented pocket(s). With a Gadget Bottle you can carry your electronic device(s) placed in the Gadget Bottle's indented pocket(s) without the use of another external device carrier e.g., hook and loop pouch, necklace, belt attachment . . . You can place a Gadget Bottle with the secured electronic device(s) in an existing bottle or cup holder where you all ready place a traditional water bottle. There are many types of bottle and cup holders all ready in existence e.g, on exercise machines, bicycles, golf carts, boats . . . A Gadget Bottle allows you to answer your mobile phone or operate your music player without taking it out of the Gadget Bottle indented pocket(s).
Gadget Bottle(s) can be manufactured from United States Food and Drug Administration approved materials e.g. Polyethylene, polypropylene, polycarbonate, stainless steal or other FDA approved materials. The fastening bands can be made from silicone, rubber, elastic or other materials. The bands can be any color but clear or transparent will allow the user to better see the screen or buttons on their electronic device(s). The bands will be sized according to the molded groves on Gadget Bottle being manufactured. The width of the bands and grooves can vary from 0.125 of an inch to four inches. A Gadget Bottle band and groove securing system works on on many different shaped bottles, see FIGS. 2,8,9 and 10. The indented side pockets can vary in size for example: for many flip open or clamshell style phones , 4 inches long×2.1 inches wide×1. inches deep. For many bar or slide open phones 5 inches long×2.1 wide inches×0.75 inches deep. For many digital music players 4.25 inches long×1.75 wide×0.5 inches deep with a headset jack pocket extension see FIG. 9 Items 1 &4. If needed foam spacers can be added to the pocket to help secure the electronic device in the pocket. The thickness of the bands will allow the users of many flip-open or clamshell style mobile phones to open and close the phone without removing the phone from the pocket see FIG. 3 Item 1 &2. The groves that are molded into the bottle are deep enough to accommodate the bands and not interfere with sliding the Gadget Bottle in or out of the holder, see FIG. 1 Item 5, and FIG. 3 Item 2. There are numerous devices on the market that will fit in the different sized Gadget Bottle's indented pocket(s). A Gadget Bottle may have 1,2,3,4,5,6 or more molded band grooves, there are four grooves in FIG. 4 labeled Item 2A, 2B, 2C and 2D. There may be more grooves than are needed to secure a particular device see FIG. 3 Item 3. The drinking screw-on or snap-on closure (Tops) of the Gadget Bottle will be molded to fit standard snap on or thread on closures see FIG. 1 Item 1. Other non electronic devices may also be carried in the side pocket e.g, wallet, energy bar, keys . . .
