Tokyoflash's new watch tells the time and your blood alcohol level

•, By Jonathan Fincher
 The Japanese watch-maker's new Kisai Intoxicated wristwatch has a built-in breathalyzer so you can always check if your blood alcohol content (BAC) is low enough to legally drive.
The general aesthetics of the watch might help it stand out from other wrist accessories, but the breathalyzer function is what makes it unique. A cap on the side opens up to reveal a small port with a sensor inside. Just push a button, blow into the port for five seconds, and check the watch face for your BAC.
A meter on the right side of the screen will show your measured BAC along with a corresponding colored LED: green if you're stone cold sober, yellow for a BAC between 0.41 and 0.60 percent, and red for 0.61 percent and higher, which means you're definitely too drunk to get behind the wheel.
There's also a game programmed into the watch that tests your reflexes by having you stopping a line as it moves across the screen, kind of like a digital version of a road sobriety test.
