Many of you will already know that the Apple Watch, and its applications, are capable of measuring our heart rate, and our blood glucose levels.
But what many of you don’t know is that thanks to a curious accessory the Apple Watch is also able to know if we are drunk or not, by measuring the levels of alcohol in our blood .
So, getting a blood-alcohol result is now as easy as looking at the Apple Watch.
The first wearable capable of monitoring alcohol made its debut at the Las Vegas CES this week, giving drivers a new option to track their drunkenness to see if they are in full driving shape or not.
This new, curious, and small Apple Watch accessory has been developed by BACtrack , a very popular breathalyzer company.
The name of the accessory is BACtrack Skyn , and its sensor can be carried by attaching it to the Apple Watch or simply separately.
The great thing about this accessory is that it is able to provide a complete real-time analysis of how drunk you are, so you can see how your alcohol levels are slowly rising while you are drinking.
Instead of having to guess or predict how many beers you can usually drink and how they will affect you when driving or doing other jobs, BACtrack Skyn will make estimates of your drinking so you can make plans.
BACtrack plans to launch the new sensor during the summer. It will cost $99 , and of course it will come with an application that will synchronize the contents between the Apple Watch and the iPhone or iPad.
What do you think of this new accessory for Apple Watch that was recently presented at the Las Vegas CES? Would you buy it? Do you know of any other similar wearables? We’ll be waiting for you in the comments.
