How to Check Your BAC on the BACtrack Apple Watch

Checking the blood alcohol level before driving is crucial to be safe and minimise safety risks. A breathalyser is a useful device that estimates a person’s Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) or intoxication level. It analyses the sample breath to determine how much alcohol is in the system. Moreover, breathalysers can deliver fast results, helping you make informed decisions. Devices from Breathalysers New Zealand offer reliable breath tests using advanced sensor technologies. Many individuals and industries trust the BACtrack breathalysers to measure the BAC level accurately. Today, you can monitor your alcohol level from your wrist through the BACtrack Apple Watch. The BACtrack merges advanced fuel cell sensors and wireless technology for more efficient alcohol testing.

The Accuracy of Professional Breathalysers
Effective alcohol breath tests rely on the quality of the device to deliver accurate BAC results. Most alcohol testers at Breathalysers New Zealand employ fuel cell sensor technology to measure the BAC level accurately. The BACtrack’s Xtend fuel cell sensors can trace complete alcohol concentrations expected in the breath from 0.00 to 0.400% BAC. Furthermore, fuel cell breathalysers are specific to ethyl alcohol and do not interact with other substances. Thus, there is less likely to produce false positives, even for people with diabetes. Additionally, fuel cell sensors maintain consistency longer and despite back-to-back tests. It is the same technology that law enforcement use in roadside screening. Therefore, BAC tests are more efficient with the combined pro-grade accuracy of BACtrack breathalysers and the advanced features of the BACtrack Apple Watch app.
BACtrack Apple Watch: Redefining Alcohol Breath Testing
Alcohol affects individuals differently. Some people who have a low tolerance tend to get intoxicated quickly. Meanwhile, others can manage their intoxication despite consuming more amounts. This is because many individuals influence the BAC. The factors that affect the BAC are a person’s weight, age, body fat content, hydration level, food intake, and metabolism rate. Thus, it is crucial to understand how different alcoholic beverages affect you to moderate your intake. In this regard, the BACtrack for Apple Watch offers useful functions for convenient BAC monitoring. The pro-grade accuracy and the Active ZeroLine technology help make informed safety decisions.
Many people had difficulty assessing their sobriety without a monitoring tool such as a breathalyser. The great importance of alcohol testing is determining the BAC level or degree of impairment. The BACtrack for Apple Watch and breathalysers give consistent, accurate results for critical BAC monitoring. Additionally, breathalysers help keep individuals from reaching the legal alcohol limits. For instance, most people tend to slow their consumption when they see their BAC level approaches the legal limit (0.05%). Likewise, a glance at the Apple Watch lets you know how long your BAC level will return to 0.00%. Lastly, breathalysers are proven to deter drink driving and reduce the risks of accidents.
