The BACtrack C8 breathalyser is the latest product from the American brand BACtrack (market leader in electronic breathalysers). For more than 15 years the Californian company has specialised in the field of alcohol testing. The brand has been distributed in Switzerland for almost 10 years and we have focused on quality and customer service (calibration of the devices in Switzerland).
This new model combines the best features of the BACtrack range in one device:
its compact size allows it to be carried in the pocket
a large display to read everything: not only does it show the breath alcohol measurement BUT ALSO the ZEROLINE data!
KEZAKO Zeroline? This is the estimated time needed to return to 0 from the moment you blew.
The C8 is connected: via the free BACtrack app you can change the unit chosen for the display of the measurements on the screen of the BACtrack C8 device as on the smartphone. This version has been adapted for the European market at the request of Red-Dolphin.
With this version of the BACtrack device it is therefore possible to choose the unit mg/L (the one now in use in Switzerland) but you can also choose to revert to the unit ‰ for example.
For reference: 0.25mg/L = 0.5‰ = 0.05%.
This possibility to change the unit on the display of the device (and no longer only on the screen of the smartphone in connected mode) is an important novelty offered by the C8 model. The user is no longer obliged to keep the display in mg/L.
To change the default display unit
switch on the BACtrack C8
If necessary, switch to "CONNECTED" mode by pressing the button for 7 seconds
launch the BACtrack app on your smartphone
the app detects the BACtrack and connects
go to the settings screen (icon in the bottom right corner) and choose units to select the unit of measurement you want
And that's it you have set up the new default display for your device.
To switch back to "STANDALONE" mode, press the button again for 7 seconds
The Blufire sensor installed in this BACtrack model is factory calibrated. The results are accurate and reliable over time with a minimal margin of error of ±0.025 mg/L BAC. Tests are reliable and consistent over a period of 6 to 12 months. Its intelligent sensor ensures optimal sampling at all times by displaying a clear message when insufficient breath sample is blown.

one press and it lights up
A 7-second press switches from connected to classic mode (and vice versa)
