If you happen to enjoy going out for a few drinks with friends, you have no doubt at one point or another faced a moment where you had to decide if it was a smart idea to drive yourself home or not. Compounding the issue is the fact that people who have been drinking don’t always deploy the best judgement. Enter BACtrack, a personal breathalyzer that can fit on a keyring and pairs with your smartphone to provide instant feedback on your blood alcohol content.

The BACtrack breathalyzer is the smallest and simplest way to turn nearly any smartphone into a high-performance alcohol screening device. Simply open the flip-up mouthpiece, blow for 5 seconds, and you have an ultra-accurate BAC reading right on your smartphone. It connects via Bluetooth to the companion app. AndroidArea has the BACtrack on sale right now for $39.99 (usually $50).

This breathalyzer does a lot more than just show your blood alcohol content on your phone. It can tell you how long it will take before your BAC returns to 0.00%, which can be useful if you can’t find a ride.  Just for fun, there is a “Guess your BAC” feature. Now you will really know who has had the most to drink. Snag the BACtrack now and never drive under the influence again, or just use it as a fun party activity.
