The BACtrack Mobile Breathalyzer is the world’s first professional-grade breathalyzer that connects to smart devices wirelessly via Bluetooth. This revolutionary device quickly and easily estimates blood alcohol content (BAC) using a highly accurate, law enforcement-grade Xtend® Fuel Cell Sensor. Readings are communicated to iOS and Android smart devices via a free app, which informs users of their BAC and provides safety information. With BACtrack’s patented ZeroLine® technology, the app also estimates time to 0.00% BAC and provides powerful tracking capabilities.

  • BACtrack Mobile is the most accurate smartphone breathalyzer. Equipped with highly accurate Xtend® Fuel Cell Sensor. BACtrack Mobile uses the same technology used by law enforcement for roadside screening. It is also equipped with a miniature solenoid air pump - providing a consistent flow of air across the sensor, enabling a very high degree of precision in readings and in repeat tests. In addition, readings are displayed up to 3-decimal places, meaning you can detect even trace amounts of alcohol (0.002%) - perfect for zero tolerance environments.

  • With ZeroLine® Technology, BACtrack Mobile is capable of estimating how long it will take a user's BAC to return to 0.00% based on the last test result. This enables users to make smarter, more informed decisions based on when they will return to sobriety.

  • When you test yourself with BACtrack Mobile, you get more than just a number - your reading is put in context with medical information that explains how your body, mind, and coordination are affected by the amount you've consumed. BACtrack Mobile empowers users to make more informed decisions. In addition, BACtrack Mobile not only measures when you drank (results are displayed on an easy-to-read graph), but also what you drank. The app allows users to append photos, notes, and drink logs to readings.

  • BACtrack Mobile provides powerful digital sharing tools. Users can choose to share results, photos, and location privately via text message, or more publically via social media. BAC results can be as private or as public as the user desires. Simple privacy settings put the user in control over what data is saved, if any. Share results with your network and spark a dialog about responsible drinking - or check in with a loved and see their results before they go anywhere.

    BACtrack has created the world's first database/map of BAC readings, and integrated it with BACtreack Mobile. Called BACtrack WorldView (http://www.bactrack.com/pages/bactrack-worldview), it is accessible through the app or via any online portal. This map enables users to view anonymously reported BAC readings all over the world. This feature breaks new ground and has never before been executed.
