      A smart purchase for anyone who drinks alcohol

      Firstly, I do not condone drinking and driving. Regardless of the response of any breathalyzer to check if "you're good enough to drive, I strongly recommend to just call a sober friend or utilize UBER / LYFT" I sure wish they had these when I was younger, I opted for this version as compared to the less expensive ones because I wanted to be sure that its accuracy was as close to possible as what would be used in professional circumstance. The APP for my Android phone installed quickly and did not consume too much space, it connects to the device via Bluetooth and uses a micro usb port to charge. Included is a handy traverl case and usb cable along with a few tips (although, they do not need to be replaced after every use having spares are nice in the event other individuals would want to sanitarily use as well. This is my first review on the site so I'm not sure how far exactly I should go into depth, so I will end with the 5 Star rating, a neat feature is that the device will even estimate approximately how long until you reach 0.00bac which alone is a great visual reminder and really puts into perspective the reality of intoxication should anyone be tempted to operate a vehicle. there are more neat features too Check it out! Parents you will not be upset with the purchase for your kids. A potential life(s) saver!!!

      Much cheaper (and fun) than a DUI

      I bought this recently when I realized it would be much less expensive to spend $100 now than thousands later. First, it is kind of fun. It has you guess your BAC first before blowing. The idea is to stop, take a look at yourself -- your vision, your speech, etc. Think about it and then blow, then it compares your guess to your actual. The goal is to eventually get better at determining what your BAC is without this tool, so that if you find yourself without it, you can make a smarter decision about whether you're too drunk to drive. It's very small and easy to use. Provides an estimated time to sobriety as well. I found it very informative -- I never realized how quickly I could get above .08 if I had very little food in my stomach. It definitely made me realize that if I'm going to drink, I need to eat a lot or I have no chance of driving home safely.

      Excellent breathalyzer

      This product would be a solid 5 stars for me, if there was an integrated display screen with results. At first I was annoyed that you need to use your cell phone/an app to make it work but overall it is extremely easy to use, and very accurate. I never would have thought that Best Buy would carry breathalyzers in the store, so it was nice to just be able to go pick one up. I've been able to get my hands on a few different breathalyzers, and this one is definitely the best one.

      You can learn a lot from this.

      It is great to be able to learn a number from how you feel. Always remember, that driving within a legal limit but still being affected by alcohol is still a DUI. From all the parties I go to, I've been able to watch my limits better. Great tool. One charge from a micro USB charger lasts a long time. Uses Bluetooth to communicate to phone and I never have trouble getting the connection. Android app never has any glitches. In-fact, it has adapted to my error of turning the tester off at the wrong time and recovered perfectly. Would give five starts if the mobile app wasn't completely needed to use the device.

      Good Reality Check

      "Last night was a lot of fun, but I probably shouldn't have driven home last night!" How many times have you and a friend had that conversation? Eventually someone gets an OWI, and it doesn't feel like a joke anymore. Having experienced the expensive and humiliating OWI punishment process, I refuse to allow any of my friends and family to do the same. The BACtrack mobile is very consistent and reliable. Rather than unsuccessfully arguing whether or not someone is "good to drive," simply take a reading and let science shame your friends into sleeping on the couch!

      DO NOT BUY

      Posted
      n0038

      i bought this based on the reviews and tested it against my neighbor who is a police officer. this said i was at .04% BAC and the cops was at .132%. i knew i was over the limit. this was way of and it gave me the same number after multiple times. i would not rely on this at all. it was way off and i am returning this. do not buy this if you want a actual reading if your ok to drive apparently this said i was ok to drive but if i were to get in a car and get pulled over i would have been in jail. glad i tested it against a law enforcement issued device before i actually used it at a bar.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      I have a BAC reader connected to my car for obvious reasons. I purchased this to make sure that I won't blow anything over .000 the next morning which would land me in deep trouble. If u use this BAC reader before bed it will tell you what time you will be at .000. So far its been right on and I have not had any problems starting my car in the morning which has saved me more money then I want to think of. I highly recommend this devise.

      Overall, Very Good!

      As a former Police Officer, I was skeptical of this item's ability to accurately predict BAC. The item says you should go 15 minutes without a drink before utilizing it. This is absolutely true; attempting to use it before this time will result in a much higher reading! Overall it seems very accurate, but if you blow too hard the result is higher, if you blow to softly the result is lower. Eventually you get the hang of it and can get a good idea of whether or not you're legal to drive!
