Propel Fitness Water was introduced in 2000 by the company Pepsico. In January 2006, Gatorade introduced Propel Calcium to market. In summer of 2006, Gatorade introduced Propel powder packets, a dry powder mix of Propel, where the contents of a powder packet are added to a 500 mL (16.9 oz) bottle of water. Propel powder with Calcium launched in January 2010. In early 2009, Gatorade changed the bottle design. The packaging claims that the bottles contain 20% less plastic than their predecessors. Propel's logo remains the same, but the words "Fitness Water" have been removed from the packaging, leaving the only description as "Vitamin Enhanced Water Beverage".
In early 2011, Gatorade announced it was discontinuing production of regular Propel (Sucrose & artificial sweeteners base) in favor of an artificially sweetened variety: "Propel Zero".
Propel is available in 11 ready-to-drink, 9 powdered, and 3 calcium branded flavors. Only some of these flavors are still in stores, such as grape, watermelon, raspberry lemonade, kiwi strawberry, black cherry, berry, and lemon.
