"Run by Good Design Australia, the Good Design Awards track the best design and innovation of the year across a range of fields, including sporting goods, automotive design, domestic appliances and commercial products.
"Speaking about the BACtrack, the Design Award judges said it was 'beautifully and smartly designed' while also being functional."
"This is a clever little piece of technology that works well," the judges said. "Accuracy, functionality and user interface considerations are paramount in a product such as this and the designers have delivered on all fronts."
We here at BACtrack would love to be modest, but it's tough -- we're winning too many awards!
In April, BACtrack was rated the Most Accurate Breathalyzer by Car & Driver Magazine:
Quotes include: "the winner of the test," "the unit is quite accurate" and "quick and easy to use."
Additionally, BACtrack Mobile won Popular Science's "Best of What's New Award" in the Health Category for 2013:
"For more than a quarter century, Popular Science has devoted its December issue to the year's most remarkable innovations," said Cliff Ransom, Executive Editor of Popular Science. "The Best of What's New Awards is our magazine's top honor, and the 100 awardees are selected from a pool of thousands. Each winner is handpicked and revolutionary in its own way."
Lastly, BACtrack Mobile this year won an Edison Award in the Security and Safety Category. The Edison Awards honor excellence in new product and service development, marketing, human-centered design and innovation. Being recognized with an Edison Award is one of the highest accolades a company can receive in the name of innovation and business success.
BACtrack Breathalyzers can be found in thousands of stores across North America including Walgreens, Best Buy, Costco, Pep Boys, and others. BACtrack was the first company ever to receive FDA clearance to sell a personal breathalyzer, and BACtrack was the first company ever to launch a smartphone breathalyzer.
