A new smartwatch that tests the blood alcohol level by acting as a breathalyzer and also assesses the wearer's sobriety with an in-built game has been launched by a Japanese watchmaker.

Tokyoflash's Kisai Intoxicated watch has a breathalyser hidden beneath what looks like a watch dial and can be used to rate the wearer's blood alcohol level from .001 per cent to as high as .2 per cent, the Daily Telegraph reported.

If a person wants to test their sobriety then they must unscrew the watch dial, then wait while its alcohol sensor heats up, and then blow into the outlet from a distance of just 2cm.

The watch's display, to the right of its LCD screen, shows three levels of drunkenness.

No alcohol earns a green light, if .001 to .06 shows then it is classified as "getting drunk" and is indicated by a yellow light, and results of .061 up to .2 are officially classified as "drunk" and show a red light. (ANI)
