DBR Staff Writer Published 22 February 2016

Vertisense introduced Alcohoot Edge (#alcohootedge), the world's most advanced mobile alcohol tracking solution (#alcoholtracking).

Perfect for monitoring and tracking the short- and long-term health effects of alcohol consumption, Alcohoot Edge seamlessly fits into any user's routine of digitally monitoring their health and well-being. The Indiegogo (#indiegogo) campaign (http://igg.me/at/alcohootedge) which has a funding goal of $25,000 USD, features an Early Bird special of $60.00 USD (50% savings off the MSRP of $120.00 USD) along with numerous other rewards.

Alcohoot Edge, the world's most advanced mobile alcohol tracking solution, uses the same grade of technology found in breathalyzers used by law enforcement agencies. It combines a platinum electrochemical fuel cell along with an active breath sampling system that includes a 15-second timer ensuring the most accurate Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) reading to encourage smarter and more responsible decisions.

Users simply blow into the Alcohoot Edge to instantly measure their breath receiving instant and accurate feedback on their BAC level in their body. For repeat usage, Alcohoot Edge offers replaceable mouthpieces for improved hygiene and ingress protection.

Alcohoot Edge is more than just a device; this complete alcohol tracking system features an intuitive, easy-to-use app for iOS and Android that offers users an insightful way to stay on track with their alcohol consumption.

Through morning quizzes answered by the user, the app performs qualitative analysis to algorithmically predict optimal alcohol consumption levels, seamlessly tracking user behavior. It also contains a Smartline Line that provides users with trends in their alcohol consumption and is supported by Apple HealthKit.

Alcohoot Edge provides GPS-based recommendations on places and services such as restaurants (mapped, walkable options) and taxis (one-touch rideshare activation) ensuring a safe night out. The app reports the appropriate BAC levels based on global, local jurisdictions.

"With Alcohoot Edge, users will immediately notice not only the updated design, but the accuracy, ease of use and seamless integration with our mobile app," says Christopher Ayala, CEO of Vertisense. "Maintaining a healthy lifestyle through the use of IoT devices is a priority for all of us and with the Edge, we enable people to enjoy themselves, but still get up the next day and go on their morning run."

Vertisense previously launched its Alcohoot product line in 2013 and is an FDA registered medical device and was the only personal Breathalyzer to receive the 2014 Red Dot Award for Product Design. In 2015, Vertisense released the Intrepid Connect, a multiproduct platform for the B2B market.

Both product lines are internationally known as the most advanced smartphone alcohol tracker equipped with police grade fuel cell technology to further emphasize its commitment to ensure user safety when it comes to drinking and driving.
