How It Works
A smartphone-linked breathalyzer is one of the biggest innovations in breath testing for alcohol in the last decade. This breathalyzer connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth. They work similarly to a standard handheld or keychain breathalyzer. You blow into a mouthpiece that transmits information wirelessly to a smart device, such as a phone, where you can read your BAC result.
However, smartphone-connected devices can do so much more. Using a free App, smartphone-connected breathalyzer models will save multiple readings so you can keep track of your results over time.
For example, you can see your BAC history and whether it is still rising or starting to fall. Additionally, some models that utilize the patented ZeroLine® technology can also accurately estimate when your BAC will be back to 0.00%. This can be very helpful if you have a zero alcohol tolerance situation, such as driving or turning up for work. You can even call an Uber straight from the breathalyzer App if required. You can also share your results with family and friends over social media if you wish. This is a great way to reduce your alcohol consumption. It holds you accountable to other people when you drink.
The Breathalyzer App
Free BACtrack App also allows you to “guess” your BAC before testing. This teaches you about your own response to alcohol. The truth is your idea of what your BAC often is very different from what it actually is. Connect the breathalyzer App to “Apple Health” so that you can see how your alcohol intake affects other parts of your life, such as your sleep patterns. You can also “personalise” the App to add details about the drinking session. For example, where you were, how much you ate, how you were feeling. All this information can affect how you metabolise alcohol. This can teach you more about your body and what effect external influences have on your alcohol consumption.
Additionally, you can choose to send your data anonymously to BACtrack. BACtrack uses this information in its research. Our research has taught us much about alcohol use (and abuse) around the world. It is a vital tool in understanding the personal and social reaction to alcohol in different countries. It also shows patterns of alcohol use around the world.

Various programs and add on developments work with the Mobile Pro to give it a full suite of additional testing options.
The BACtrack View also goes one step further. “View” Is a subscription program that connects your smartphone to the BACtrack Mobile breathalyzer. This utilises the camera on your phone. When you complete the breath test on your Mobile breathalyzer, the camera takes a photo. Your test result and GPS location are sent with this photo to your nominated people. Family, friends, or even a probation officer, can be nominated to receive this information. This process is great for those who need or want to be held accountable for their alcohol consumption. If you need to maintain a zero-alcohol level or are looking to be held accountable for your alcohol use, this process will prove to test.
A text will be sent to the nominated person stating that the test has been missed if the subject fails to test at a pre-set time. The BACtrack View is a benchmark program to aid people who want to reduce or remove alcohol from their lives. Each test result photo is also time-stamped with time, date, and location. This ensures the legitimacy of the test.
BACtrack View is ideal for child custody issues, alcohol rehabilitation, or even parents wanting to check up on their teenagers when they start driving.
