Breathometer’s Breeze pairs via Bluetooth with any iOS or Android smartphone
Earlier this year the breath analysis technology company, Breathometer unveiled Breeze, the first wearable breathalyzer on the market. With its ultra-fast accurate results and easy portability, Breeze breaks new ground when it comes to personal smartphone breathalyzers.
Designed to be paired with the Breathometer app, which features integration with Uber, local restaurants, and hotels, Breeze connects via Bluetooth LE to read a user’s blood alcohol content (BAC).
Fortunately, using the breathalyzer is easy. First, the user must open the mobile app on his or her smartphone, and then when prompted, blow for five seconds directly at the LED illuminated hole on the device from about two inches away. Once measured, the app will provide an estimate of how long it will take the user to get back down to zero.

What happens when the app finds a user isn’t ready to get behind the wheel? It’s all set to display its useful features such as menu items to help get users home safely without having to drive. But in order to hail a ride, know that it must be plugged into the Uber API. Other options include calling a nearby cab company or a friend. If the user decides to stay nearby to sober up with food, the app includes a menu to suggest options. Breathometer is also looking to have Breeze hooked into HotelTonight to provide options for places to stay after a long night of drinking.
Breeze is accurate, and no warm up time is required.
Breeze requires AAA batteries (included) to work, and allows 75 BAC tests per battery life. It also comes with a clip so you can carry it on your keychain, and is currently selling for $100. Grab one now.
