Breathometer Makes Your Smart Phone Smarter...About Your BAC

It's been a while since we reviewed any portable breathalyzers around here, but it looks like it's time for all that to change. We just found out about Breathometer, touting itself as the "World's Smallest Smartphone Breathalyzer." It fits on a key chain, the device plugs into the audio device on your iOS or Android device and measures your BAC through the use of a mobile app installed on the phone.

It'll cost $49.99 and you can currently pre-order through the Breathometer website for a ship date in October. According to the tech specs page on their site, it weighs less than an ounce, takes a AAA battery, and is calibrated to stay accurate for 250 tests at an accuracy of 0.01% BAC @ 0.02% BAC. No word on whether Anti-Beer Goggles functionality will be baked into the app at some point.

If you want to learn more, the product will be featured on ABC's show Shark Tank this Friday, and you can check out their promotional video and our favorite parts of their press release below.

Small enough to fit on a key chain, Breathometer plugs into a smartphone audio jack, and together with a mobile app, transforms it into a sleek, portable and accurate breathalyzer measuring blood alcohol concentration (BAC). Breathometer is currently available for pre-order at www.breathometer.com for $49.99 and will work on iOS and Android devices. Officially registered with the FDA, Breathometer is designed to help anyone that has consumed alcohol to make smarter choices before getting behind the wheel. By simply blowing in the Breathometer, a user's blood alcohol level is displayed on the smartphone screen within seconds. If the device registers any alcohol on the breath, the mobile app has a feature called "Back to Zero" that will inform the user about how long it is estimated it will take for them to be sober. The app also provides push button access to local taxi companies and other resources, allowing them to make smart, safe choices. Breathometer is valuable for anyone who enjoys even a casual drink, as just one drink can affect judgment or the ability to drive safely. Breathometer is smaller, more cost-effective and as accurate as other high-end consumer breathalyzers on the market. Breathometer features an FDA grade sensor so it is extremely sensitive and accurate within a reading of plus or minus .01 BAC. In addition, as Breathometer does not use a "mouthpiece," the device can be shared by multiple people, as users simply blow into the Breathometer from approximately one inch away from the patent pending LED illuminated blow tube on the device.
