Introducing BACtrack Skyn,
the World’s First Wearable Alcohol Monitor

BACtrack reinvents the way people track their alcohol consumption. Glance at your wrist and learn your approximate alcohol level in near real-time.

Alcohol Monitoring, Reinvented

Wear BACtrack Skyn, either integrated into an Apple Watch band or as a standalone wearable, and continuously track your alcohol level in near real-time.

With an app that syncs with either device, you get powerful, actionable data. For instance, get a notification when your alcohol level is increasing to remind you to slow down or stop drinking.

Best of all, this breakthrough in alcohol testing is effortless -- the device passively tracks your alcohol level; there's no need to use a breathalyzer.

The Impact of BACtrack Skyn

Every year, more than 10,000 Americans die in alcohol-related auto accidents. Globally, 5.9% of all deaths are attributable to alcohol. Without a doubt, alcohol consumption is an issue of immense consequence globally.

This is the reason BACtrack has worked hard to make BACtrack Skyn a low-cost, easy to use, and attractive technology

Individuals using BACtrack Skyn will gain an objective measurement tool to track alcohol consumption, which will ultimately lead to fewer instances of impaired driving and greater insight when it comes to drinking.

For those concerned with sobriety monitoring, a service that's currently expensive and intrusive, BACtrack Skyn is a game-changer.

Likewise, for doctors and researchers in need of affordable and reliable data collection, BACtrack Skyn can have an enormous impact. The device has the potential to radically reduce healthcare expenses related to alcohol consumption and help researchers discover new treatment options.

How It Works

Both BACtrack Skyn devices work the same way -- they measure the small amounts of alcohol, or ethanol molecules, excreted through the skin; this measure is Transdermal Alcohol Content or TAC.

BACtrack is working on a proprietary algorithm that converts measured TAC to an estimated BAC (Blood Alcohol Content), the metric with which most people are already familiar.

Watch BACtrack's NIH "Wearable Alcohol Biosensor Challenge" submission video for a demonstration and further explanation of how it works.

“We’re excited to introduce a breakthrough innovation in alcohol monitoring, making it simple for people to track their alcohol level -- passively, accurately and near real-time. We’re thrilled to finally share these devices, which have been in development for more than two years.”
- Keith Nothacker, President & CEO of BACtrack

National Institute of Health (NIH) "Wearable Alcohol Biosensor Challenge"


In May 2016, an initial BACtrack Skyn prototype was awarded the grand prize and $200,000 in the Wearable Alcohol Biosensor Challenge. The challenge was issued by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), part of the National Institute of Health. The goal of the competition was to find an accurate, non-invasive and continuous way to measure a user’s alcohol level in order to aid researchers.

Our latest two designs are improved and smaller versions of our initial prototype.
