Drinking and driving has always been a big no-no, but more than ever not only are law enforcement officers and the courts cracking down on offenders – driving while intoxicated is not socially responsible and may cause an accident, or worse, the loss of life.  BACtrack, the leader in personal and professional grade breathalyzers has just introduced a new model that works with your smartphone – the BACtrack Vio.  It combines a small, keychain design with Bluetooth connectivity and their own MicroCheck Sensor technology – making it both affordable and convenient for users to check their Blood Alcohol Content (BAC).  BACtrack is also releasing an update to its free companion app.

Keith Nothacker, CEO and Founder of BACtrack says, “Due to the overwhelmingly positive response we received to BACtrack Mobile, we worked systematically to adapt its technology and hardware to create BACtrack Vio, and offer it at an even more affordable price point.  Our goal is to make breathalyzers accessible to anyone and everyone so that we can ultimately help consumers better understand how alcohol affects their bodies and also make smarter, more informed decisions.”

Some of the key features of the BACtrack Vio are – Bluetooth® Connectivity – Wirelessly syncs with your Android smartphone via Bluetooth – no need to plug into the headphone jack – ZeroLine® Technology – Estimates when your BAC will return to 0.00%, empowering you to make smarter, more informed decisions – Ultra-Compact Design – Fits inside a purse or pocket and can be easily used as a keychain – Free BACtrack App – Saves and tracks BAC results over time, including optional photos, notes and drink logs – Guess Your BAC – Helps you better understand how alcohol is affecting your body – Advanced MicroCheck® Sensor – For higher performance and more accurate, reliable results when compared to standard semiconductor sensors.

What is so nice is the compact, keychain design that makes it so easy to carry with you at all times.  Vio is designed with a flip-up mouthpiece for collecting your sample breath – keeping out other airborne gases to give you the most accurate reading possible.  The proprietary MicroCheck Sensor technology uses a semiconductor sensor that is superior to other sensors.

BACtrack Vio also offers its unique ZeroLine feature that will actually predict how long it will take your Blood Alcohol Content to return to 0.00-percent based on your last test results – it is displayed after every result and tracks your estimated BAC over time.  If you want to see the history of your BAC, you can view your history on the Tracking Graph.  You can even attach pictures, notes, type of drinks and the location where you were drinking.

It you want to keep your results private, no problem.  If you decide you would like to share your results with a friend, family member or even a counselor, you can do so via a text message…or if you are really feeling social, you can share them on Facebook or Twitter.

The BACtrack Vio is available on their website, regularly $69.99, on sale now for $49.99.  For that price you will receive The BACtrack Vio Breathalyzer – 1 AAA battery – 3 mouthpieces – the Owner’s Manual and it comes with a One-year warranty.  Please hook up with us on our Google+ Page and let us know if this looks like a device that you might be interest in purchasing and we would love to know how well it works…as always, we would love to hear from you.
