BACtrack Vio
Most of us have had a couple of drinks at some point and wondered if it’s a good idea to get behind the wheel. The new BACtrack Vio breathalyzer lets you know whether it’s time to call a cab. It combines a compact keychain with Bluetooth connectivity, making it the most affordable and convenient way to measure your blood-alcohol content levels. The flip-up mouthpiece collects a high-quality breath sample, while its MicroCheck Sensor technology offers a high level of accuracy and reliability. The BACtrack companion app includes features such as ZeroLine, an estimate of how long it will take for your BAC to return to 0.00 percent. $49.99.
