With an update for the BACtrack Mobile and BACtrack Vio smartphone-connected breathalyzers, iPhone users are now able to share blood alcohol content results with Apple’s new Health app in iOS 8.

An update to the companion app for the breathalyzers, which we previously reviewed alongside the BACtrack Vio, allows users to sync data with the Health app on iOS 8 and tap into data from other health-related apps.

So why would you want the Health app to know how drunk you are? The company explained some of the possibilities with the new Health integration:

  • Compare BAC levels and sleep data side-by-side to discover if alcohol consumption affects both quality and duration of sleep
  • Track daily routines using a wearable device and discover if activity levels change based on alcohol consumption
  • Use fitness apps to track exercise activities and see if results change based on the previous night’s BAC levels
  • View correlations between BAC levels and calories consumed using food tracking apps

The two Bluetooth breathalyzers sell for around $100 (BACtrack Mobile) and $50 (BACtrack Vio) on Amazon and the updated companion app is available on the App Store now. You can check out our recent review of the BACtrack Vio here.
