BACtrack Breathalyzer Alerts You if You’ve Had Too Much to Drink

Sometimes, you go to a party and end up drinking more than you should have. You probably know better than to drink and drive, so your best bet would be to crash at a friend’s place until you’re sober enough to go home.

Most people aren’t really good judges of even their own sobriety, and that’s where the BACtrack Breathalyzer comes in.

BACtrack Breathalyzer

BACtrack is a compact breathalyzer that you can take with you on the go. It can accurately measure how much alcohol you have in your system, thanks to its internal air pump that can provide you with precise and consistent results. It then sends its data to your iOS device over Bluetooth. Being true to the ‘track’ part of the breathalyzer’s name, the BACtrack will track your blood alcohol content (BAC) over time so you can gauge and maybe even re-asses your current drinking habits.


The companion iOS BACtrack app also serves as your personal drink diary, and even lets you snap photos of what drinks you’ve been imbibing. It doesn’t skimp on social features either, as you can share your results with other people, like your designated driver.

The app also has a feature which will estimate how long it will take for your blood alcohol level to return to 0.00 so you know approximately when it will be safe to drive, bike, walk (or text).


The BACtrack is available on ThinkGeek for $149.99(USD).
