A Breathalyzer Watch

I came across an interesting watch a few weeks back and had to post about it. This is the Kisai Intoxicated LCD watch by Tokyoflash Japan.  By the name you would think it gets you drunk through some sort of watch-to-skin osmosis. A fascinating concept but probably immoral and illegal.  However, it does function as a breathalyzer.

A breathalyzer is a device for estimating blood alcohol content from a sample of your breath. According to their website:

"...open the sensor cap and press the alcohol button to start the test. Once the sensor has warmed up, blow for 5 seconds and wait for the watch to give an on screen reading. The display on the right of the screen shows 10 different levels of blood alcohol content. A green display showing 0.00‰ means you're sober. A yellow display showing between 0.41 and 0.60‰ means you're buzzing. A red display showing 0.61‰ or above means you're drunk!"

Not only will it tell you how intoxicated you may be (read the fine print, it does not imply that it is accurate, so don't try to use results in court), but it does come with a drinking game!  This is definitely a device for entertainment, though it does tell time in a vaguely legible manner. But is the $149 price tag worth it?

 Can you easily tell the time on this watch? What if you had a few drinks?
