Thrillist reviewed BACtrack Mobile this week, calling it, "a step toward making good choices while drinking," and classifying BACtrack's revolutionary new device, "the first 'professional grade' mobile breathalyzer... to provide ultra-accurate readings, helping you confidently decide whether you're good to drive/bike/Razor scoot without incident, and also, figure out how long it'll take to sober up."
Thrillist gave the unit a glowing review overall, closing with a choice piece of advice: "This thing's way cheaper than a DUI. Pick one up..."

May 2013: Self.com Calls BACtrack Mobile "Pretty Cool!"
Self published a review of BACtrack Mobile recently, finding the device quite to their liking. They found BACtrack's newest breathalyzer an instructive tool for self-awareness while drinking.
"I gave it a try and I was surprised at how easy it was to use," the critic writes, "and how it picked up on the two glasses of red wine I had at dinner... it was certainly an eye opener to see how close I was to the legal limit -- even though I felt completely fine."
Self then points out the utility of BACtrack Mobile's ZeroLine and sharing capabilities:
"If you saw a friend post his over-the-limit BAC while out at a bar, for example, you might text him and offer him a ride home -- or, at the very least, check in and make sure he gets a cab."
That type of responsibility is exactly what we love to hear.

May 2013: Gizmodo Spreads the Good Word About BACtrack Mobile!
BACtrack Mobile got another great write up, this time in the tech blog, Gizmodo.
"Throughout a night of partying," Gizmodo reports, "the BACtrack's accompanying app lets you log the libations you've consumed, and its database automatically calculates a fairly accurate estimate of how much alcohol's in your body. Using readings from the breathalyzer that are sent to your iPhone via Bluetooth, the app is then able to give you a rough estimate on when you'll be sober again. The $150 BACtrack also provides detailed stats analysis so you have a more accurate idea of how well you hold your liquor, lets you easily contact your designated driver when drunk, and most importantly, makes it easy to know when getting behind the wheel of a car is a dangerous idea."

May 2013: BACtrack Mobile Covered in Fast Company
Fast Company's Tech Forecast covered BACtrack Mobile's launch last week. The cool business news blog grouped BACtrack's new smartphone breathalyzer with other quantified self devices becoming all the rage, such as Nike's FuelBand, Jawbone's Up, and Lark.
"The BACtrack Mobile Breathalyzer itself is nothing novel," FC reported, "what's unique is that the device can wirelessly sync via Bluetooth to a range of smartphones and tablets... Not only will it digitally determine your BAC, but it will let you know how long it will take before it is likely to return to zero. Users can see results over the last six hours or the past two weeks, enabling them to monitor alcohol consumption patterns..."
Great write-up, BACtrack! Congratulations.

May 2013: Introducing the BACtrack Mobile Breathalyzer
Introducing the world's first smartphone breathalyzer: BACtrack Mobile. This is by far the most exciting product BACtrack has come out with yet and we here at Breathalyzer.net couldn't be more enthusiastic about carrying it!
In developing this new product, one they are calling "the world's most intelligent breathalyzer" (and we believe it), BACtrack reexamined every aspect of what makes a breathalyzer useful, combining the best of their Pro and Personal Series Breathalyzers, and rolled them into one amazing unit. BACtrack Mobile has it all--a fuel cell sensor for professional-grade accuracy, a cool design and sleek, compact size for easy portability, plus cutting-edge functionality that you would expect from a breathalyzer connecting to an iPhone via Bluetooth.
BACtrack Mobile's features are unlike any we've ever seen before. Aside from being able to accurately estimate your BAC at any given time (which it does with great consistency), it can also save readings to track how much you have had to drink and where over the course of a night, several weeks, or longer. Its sexy new ZeroLine feature can predict when your BAC will return to 0.00 based on your current result. Naturally, being connected to an iPhone or iPad, it also has killer sharing capabilities.
Check out our product page (link above) and pick one up now to see what this incredible new breathalyzer can do. You'll be glad you did!
