There are plenty of personal breathalyzers out there, but how many can connect to your phone via Bluetooth? How many of them can be clipped on to your clothes, out of sight, so you never lose it? Breathometer’s new Bluetooth-enabled Breeze aims to fix those problems for you, all while being readily available for a cheap price.
Just like any other breathalyzer, the Breeze monitors alcohol consumption so you can potentially make a better decision for your ride home. Users can download an app that allows for alcohol consumption tracking, Uber integration, and give directions to a local late-night eatery. Oh, and the app is completely redesigned from the previous version, used with the first Breathometer.
For the Breeze, Breathometer has partnered with New Deal Design, the folks behind the design for the FitBit Flex and Force. The device is small, light, and discreet, allowing it to be hid away from plain sight. Although, it wouldn’t really be a bad thing if it was out in the open. This may lead to friends wanting to know about the device, and in turn, testing it out and using it to keep themselves safe.
The Breathometer Breeze is available beginning today exclusively at Breathometer.com and BestBuy.com for $99.99. It will hit the shelves at Best Buy beginning November 1st, so be sure to check that out at your local Best Buy when the time comes. Also, be on the look out for a review of the Breeze in the coming weeks, here at AndroidGuys.com!

Breathometer Launches Industry’s First Wearable Smartphone Breathalyzer
Breeze™, the ultra-portable wireless smartphone breathalyzer with advanced law enforcement grade sensor technology, will hit Best Buy shelves for the holiday
Burlingame, CA, October 14, 2014 – Breathometer, Inc., the leader in breath analysis technology, today unveiled the first truly wearable breathalyzer on the market, featuring both ultra-fast and extremely accurate results. The company breaks new ground in personal smartphone breathalyzers with the Breathometer Breeze™ and the enhanced Breathometer app, which now features integration with Uber™, local restaurants and hotels.
“We set out to create something that’s effortless to carry and use when you’re out with friends –so people will actually want to use it,” says Charles Michael Yim, CEO of Breathometer. “With its cool wearable design, the all new app and superb accuracy– Breeze nails it; we couldn’t be more pleased.”
Breathometer enables users to keep track of their alcohol consumption, which assists casual, social drinkers to make more informed decisions regarding their health and wellness. Breathometer supports Apple Health Kit, so BAC results can be viewed comprehensively with other health and wellness information being tracked.
The completely new FDA registered Breeze features:
o Completely new industrial design with a built in mouthpiece to simplify ease of use
o State of the art fuel cell sensor enabling instant results and law enforcement grade accuracy
o Bluetooth LE enabled- no jacks, wires or power cords required
o 16 months of daily use before needing battery replacement
o Wearable clip, keychain and optional mouthpiece cover included
The completely redesigned smartphone app (available on IOS and Android) now includes highly requested features like ‘stay nearby’ and ‘get home safe’. The app makes it easy to obtain instant results, including Back to Zero™ and direct access to get an Uber ride, stop for food at a local restaurant, or find a place to stay at a nearby hotel.
Breathometer partnered with NewDealDesign, the National Design Award winning firm and leading force in wearable design. The partnership resulted in Breezes’ unmatched design within the breathalyzer space.
“In both form and function, Breeze redefines the category,” says Gadi Amit, Principal of NewDealDesign.”Wearables are inherently personal; to hit the right chord took a carefully considered approach inside and out. The result is a beautiful bright pop of blue that is ambient when needed but also fun and cool to show off. It hits the right notes, speaking to health and safety while helping to increase awareness around the self.”
The Breeze is available today online at Breathometer.com and BestBuy.com and exclusively this holiday for retail placement nationwide at Best Buy stores as of November 1, 2014, at an MSRP of $99.99.
