Blog: Olly Wehring[Checks watch] “I best be heading home”

Olly Wehring | 8 April 2015

It's not even available on pre-order yet, but Apple's latest piece of kit has already got a breathalyser app.

US company BACtrack has today unveiled an Apple Watch-specific version of its breathalyser app. By blowing into the BACtrack breathalyser, data sent direct to the watch will detail the blood alcohol content (BAC) of the subject.

“With the proprietary ZeroLine feature,” the company says, “a user can view an estimate of how long it will take for their BAC to return to 0.00%. The … feature then displays a continuous estimate of a user's BAC as it counts down to 0.00%.”

So, either you can get yourself home from the bar early, or be late back as you wait for your levels to drop.
