Good review of the Alcohoot personal breathalyzer – another in the new wave of alcohol monitors that work with smartphones – at the Android Guys website.
The Alcohoot is just a bit bigger than a Zippo lighter so it can fit in just about any pocket or purse. It should work with any Android or iOS device, as long as you have a 3.5mm port and download the companion app. This really makes the Alcohoot easy to carry on a night out. Even if you don’t use the breathalyzer feature, the Alcohoot can help you find restaurants close to you or taxis to get you safely home. For $99 there are a ton of features packed into the Alcohoot.
…The Alcohoot was pretty accurate for such a small device, but more importantly it was consistent. The Alcohoot almost always gave readings within a few points of the more expensive, professional unit. For example, a friend blew a 0.023 on the police unit, then seconds later blew a 0.030 on the Alcohoot. While the Alcohoot read higher, it always gave a consistently higher reading. It never gave a higher reading than the professional unit, then a lower reading the next go around. This consistency is one of the best parts of the Alcohoot.
