Alcohoot Smartphone Breathalyzer Helps Boaters Know Their Number

August 2015 Product Web Exclusive

With most states trading out an acceptable BAC from .1 to .08 for boaters, Alcohoot has come out with the first smartphone breathalyzer you can take on the go.

By simply plugging this breathalyzer into your Apple or Android smartphone or tablet, downloading a free app, and breathing into the hardware, you can instantly know your BAC. The police-grade platinum fuel cell inside promises high testing accuracy. And at only 3 by 1 by 2 inches, it’s easy to store on the boat or in a purse or bag. The highly stylized rubber encasement was even awarded the international Red Dot Design Award for 2014.

Christopher Ayala, CEO of Alcohoot, says, “If you’re having a couple of beers while you’re at a sand bar or fishing, you could use this breathalyzer just to make sure that before you operate the boat, you’re safe.”

As anyone with access to the news knows, many boating accidents and deaths are unfortunately alcohol-related. At only $99.99, this technology is certainly worth every penny for peace of mind. (
