Drink Smart. Be Safe. Breathometer, the world’s first smartphone breathalyzer will be available this summer and consumers can start pre-ordering today for only $20. In a study conducted by Breathometer and Sodahead, 64% of respondents admitted driving/riding while intoxicated or having been a passenger with a driver under the influence of alcohol. 67 percent know someone that has been involved in an accident involving someone under the influence and 80 percent know someone that has received a DUI or DWI…
“Breathometer wasn’t created just to address the risks associated with drinking and driving,” said Charles Michael Yim, Founder & CEO of Breathometer. “but to help people, their friends and family, all to make smart and safer choices when consuming alcohol. Real time BAC measurement is the first step.”
Breathometer is both a device and mobile app that will transform iPhone and Android smartphones into a breathalyzer. Breathometer provides options beyond informing users of their impaired state and plans to connect to local transportation services to quickly connect with a cab or taxi. Upon launch, Breathometer will be available at Breathometer.com, the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Breathometer will be FDA approved and is patent pending. It is ideal for anyone who enjoys even a casual drink, as just one drink can affect judgment or the ability to drive safely. The company will make Breathometer available in Summer 2013, anticipating that the affordable price combined with a quality equivalent to current consumer breathalyzers will encourage widespread use and help grow the market for such devices.“Breathometer is as much for a parent as it is for someone who ‘parties.’ Both want an easier way to be smart and safe for themselves, as well as the people they care about,” added Yim.
