Going out with friends and family is a lot of fun and it’s great to share a few drinks over laughter, but sometimes we get a little carried away and drink maybe more than we should. Once you’ve had a few, your judgment on whether you can drive isn’t always accurate, or safe. While you might be thinking, why do I need a breathalyzer for my smartphone? The answer is because it’s safer to know if you can drive for sure, but this breathalyzer does more than that.
The BACtrack Smartphone Breathalyzer has a lot of features that make drinking out with friends fun and safe, and who doesn’t want that? So how does this device work? Like any other breathalyzer, you break into the BACtrack for about five seconds and then the results are sent to your device wirelessly through Bluetooth for you to analyze. You’ll be able to view your BAC (blood alcohol content) and you’ll also get an estimate of when you’ll reach 0.00%.
While this is great for helping you decide whether you can drive home, it’s also great for determining what you do next. Maybe your BAC is pretty high so you should drink some water. Or maybe you see you’re just over the legal driving limit and you plan to continue so you hand your keys to someone else.
Knowing where you are is critical for safety and this breathalyzer makes it so easy to determine you almost wonder why we don’t all have one already.
This handy device and the app can help you better understand your alcohol intake and how it makes you feel and affects you, something a lot of people don’t even know. Before it gives you your BAC, you can guess what you think your BAC level is and compare your guess and see if your answers improve over time, meaning you understand how alcohol affects you better than you did before.
You also have the ability to personalize it in many ways. You can track and attach notes or photos to your results and this can include what you drank and ate, whom you were with and how it made you feel. All of this information is important when you’re figuring out how alcohol affects you and when to know to stop.
Have an iPhone or an Apple Watch? Great! The smartphone breathalyzer is seamlessly integrated with Apple Health and Apple Watch.
For just $99.99 you get access to the app and the breathalyzer, making this great value because nothing is more important than your safety and you can’t put a price on that. Make going out fun and ensure your safety and figure out your tolerance for real this time – with science.
