I don’t really know about accuracy I’ve not had to calibrate it yet. My husband knows if he drinks I’m gonna make him blow and it better be ZERO !! I love it no more him lying to me .
So easy to set up and use. We love to use it when we have been out drinking to see how drinks affect me vs my husband. Also, it tells you when you will be sober and gives you a descriptor sentence about the BAC level you are at, like “visually intoxicated” these make me laugh! It’s just something fun to have at a party, you can predict what you think your BAC is before you blow, this is great to see how close or how off your prediction is. It’s fun and everyone will want to try it.
This has helped me gauge my drinking better when out with friends and to help make informed decisions about when to stop drinking or getting ride home. It’s super easy to use and I highly recommend it!
Love love love that this is non contact so I dont have to sterilize it everytime i use it or let my friends try it out. Seems pretty accurate so far using it. Recommended.
This portable breathalyzer is a quality tool as well as "a fun party game". Hear me out.First off, I feel like it is accurate, and very easy to use and it comes in a compact storage bag so it doesn't get pocket trash in the delicate sensors. It charges via USB so you should never be without power, I mean we all have USB chargers everywhere, right? Ever had a group of friends over, drinking and chatting, and lose track of the time and suddenly you're not convinced everyone should be driving home just yet? Enter "BACTrack High Score". Sure, it's dumb to TRY and get high score but singling out a person and trying to convince them they need to pass a breathalyzer to leave your house isn't gonna go over well, and even more likely if they really ought to be checking. With the included 4 tips and the ability to order more you can introduce it as something fun to do, even going first, to see where you are. It's pretty easy at that point to get everyone to go along and find out exactly where everyone stands, then who's gonna say "Yeah, I blew a .15 and now I gotta go drive home". Might not stop anyone but at least it raises awareness, and that's something.Not sure what took me so long to get one of these, for both the utility and the novelty.One thing to note, I did 2 readings within a minute of each other just to see what would happen. First reading I hadn't had and alcohol in 5 minutes and I swished water in my mouth and got a 0.026. Second reading was 1 min later. I took a sip of regular beer, waited a minute and blew a 0.202, lol. Make sure to follow the directions, wait 15 mins after a last drink and/or do a good mouth rinse with WATER (not mouthwash) to get an accurate reading
Pros:+ Easy to use+ Fast results. I DO recommend this, as it makes you consider this, pay attention, and I think that it helps this work as a learning tool+ Small, discrete size+ Comes with a storage bag; rather essential to keep it clean since you put it near your mouth. Cons:- must blow into it at least once a month to keep the sensor from drying out and being ruined (what happens if this sits in a warehouse somewhere for several months, or if you forget to use it)? Summary:This is best used as a learning tool. I found that the little bit of wine that I sometimes have with dinner doesn’t budge my BAC; that’s good peace of mind that if there should be an emergency requiring me to drive, then I can do that. I ordered this thinking that it may be good to have along at an upcoming wedding in case any concerns about guests driving home again arose- that wedding was cancelled due to the pandemic, but I found it interesting to learn about my personal use and would recommend it for that purpose. I cannot comment on accuracy, because that would actually require group data on a larger scale with additional forms of blood alcohol concentration measurement. If you need that sort of information, then watch for it in published literature. If accuracy is proven, it will show up in peer-reviewed journals. Overall its a great tool.
