No matter the occasion, when you are planning to give someone a gift, it is usually someone you care about. And most people want to give something that shows how they feel, something that caters to a need of that friend or loved one, or just come up with something different that can fulfill those things. A breathalyzer makes the perfect gift idea for almost any occasion.
Let's look at a couple of scenarios. Are you a parent? Do you have a child who is old enough to drive? Let's face it, when our kids are first out on their own, they are exposed on a refular basis to things they have never seen before and have to make choices they have never had to make before. We can't go everywhere with them and help them make those choices, but we can equip them to make the best decisions possible when they are out on their own. How much better woudl you feel if you not only educated your kids about alcohol, but gave them a tool like a breathalyzer to help them deal with it?
That is just one scenario, but you get the idea. A breathalyzer makes a great gift for all the right reasons for any adult in your life, on any occassion that calls for a gift. The only question you have to ask is, "which breathalyzer is right for this gift"? Our feedback has shown that this is the hardest part of the buying decision for most people. The question is not IF to ourchase a breathalyzer, but rather which one?
Making the decision as to which breathalyzer to purchase does not have to be nearly as hard as many people make it. It really comes down to how the breathalyzer is going to be used, then finding a unit that matches that use better than the others. To make it simpler, think of breathalyzers in two categories; personal breathalyzers and professional breathalyzer. The BACtrack line has several models in each of those categories.
If you want a breathalyzer for entertainment or educational purposes, you will be fine with a personal breathalyzer like the BACtrack S30, which is the least expensive BACtrack model you can buy. The thing to remember about breathalyzers is there are trade offs when you choose one model over another. The trade off is usually a lower price for less accuracy, or perhaps it is better to state it as a larger margin of error and less consistency. If you are using the breathalyzer at a party or to teach people about the affects of alcohol on the body, you can probably live with those trade offs.
On the other hand, you might want to give that important person in your life a tool to use to make decisions that involve things like driving after having a couple of drinks. This is where having a large margin of error simply will not do. A professional grade breathalyzer gives the security you are looking for in this situation. BACtrack offers 3 different professional grade breathalyzer choices. Once again, there are trade offs within that class. The BACtrack S80 is the most accurate breathalyzer offered, and is used by law enforcement and medical professionals across the nation. For a few dollars less you can purchase the BACtrack S75. The S75 is a little more compact, but has a slightly larger plus or minus range for the readings it will provide. Finally, the BACtrack Element is made to be more sleek and compact than the other 2 choices, but still has a fuel cell sensor that provides professional grade results. The overall accuracy of this model is about the same as the S75.
As you can see, the idea of giving a breathalyzer as a gift is a good one. The decision as to which one you purchase does not have to be a hard one. Simply give some thought to the type of use the breathalyzer is going to receive, and choose the one that is in the class that fits the need, but is the best one you can afford within that class.
