BACtrack Smartphone Breathalyzer
DISCLAIMER! TechPicks does not encourage nor endorse drinking alcohol. "We can't emphasize enough how dangerous it is for you to drink and drive. Your vision and your brain are the most important factors to driving safely. If you jeopardize either one by drinking and driving, you are likely to be involved in a serious or fatal collision. You may kill yourself, your best friends, or someone else’s family."
Drinking is a social habit, whether you go out with friends, or are entertaining at home. Beer pong anyone?
Some people can't pace themselves when they drink, and saying "I am only going to have few drinks" never works when everyone else is having more than just a few.
To avoid ending up in an embarrassing situation, or with a bad hangover the next day, BACtrack created what every social drinker always dreamed of, personal mobile breathalyzers!
The creators at BACtrack are considered heroes for some. They have been working diligently, for more than a decade, on enabling individuals to check their own blood alcohol level. BACtrack was the first FDA approved personal use breathalyzer, and was featured on shows like The Doctors, Dr Phil, and Mythbusters to name a few.
Today we are going to review and explore BACtrack Mobile, the world's first Bluetooth, smartphone connected breathalyzer.
BACtrack Mobile, Why You Should Buy It?
The BACtrack Mobile breathalyzer, or any BACtrack breathalyzer in general, is a very practical item to own. Having the option to connect it to your smartphone enriches the awesomeness, and the ingenuity of this valuable gadget.
One drawback that I was able to find with BACtrack Mobile is that if your phone dies, you're out of luck. This breathalyzer is practically useless without a phone. However, it is really easy to borrow someones else phone and install the app. It takes literally less than one minute to connect the breathalyzer to any phone after installing the app. Maybe including a built-in screen that can be turned off when the breathalyzer is connected to the phone to preserve battery could fix this.
The accuracy of BACtrack Mobile is astonishing. The features, the design, and the app are like a team that complete each other. Remember, BACtrack should be used to determine the alcohol level in the blood to give you a time frame for sobriety and allow you to monitor your drinking habits. It should not be used to determine if you can drive or not, as having any alcohol in your blood can impair driving.
