Acetrack Ketone Breathalyser | Track Your Fat Burning Metabolism, Ketosis, Fitness | Electronic Acetone Test Stick, Bluetooth Connection to iPhone or Android App
- Acetrack Ketone Breathalyser is a portable breathalyser to detect acetone in exhaled breath. Measure your ketogenic level non-invasively wherever you are
- When in a ketonic state, your body releases acetone. Measuring acetone in the breath is the accurate, non-invasive way of monitoring your ketosis
- Monitor ketosis and make informed decisions about your diet and training. Suitable for those on a ketogenic, low carb or paleo diet
- Lightweight, rechargeable and portable ketosis monitor. Share with others – create individual app accounts while sharing one device. Simply exchange the detachable mouthpiece
- Includes: Acetrack ketosis monitoring device, user guide, charging cable and one extra mouthpiece so that you can share your monitor. Connect the Acetrack device to your mobile phone via Bluetooth using free-of-charge app
What does the ppm value mean?
The measured value is the fraction in ppm (parts per million) of acetone in your
breath. This is an individual value corresponding to your level of ketosis. High levels
of acetone mean that you are in ketosis and low levels mean that you are not.
How can I use ppm values to track my metabolism?
The ppm values are individual, and we recommend that you try to measure every
morning for 14 days before you start with big lifestyle changes in order to burn more
fat – like cutting carbohydrates, doing intermittent fasting, training more or whichever
changes you would like to try. That way, you will get to know your baseline and what
values you used to get before the changes to your lifestyle – a bit like knowing your
initial weight before starting a new diet.
Your baseline value might be between 4ppm and 8ppm for example, without any
lifestyle changes, and then you know that anything above 10ppm means that you are
burning more fat than you used to. We recommend that you pay particularly close
attention to your values the day after you have eaten something to see how long
time it takes the body to consume the energy. This will give you helpful information
about how your individual metabolism works.
I already use a bathroom scale to track my weight, why should I use Acetrack?
The baseline is individual and will help you to track your success in the same way as
knowing your initial weight before you commence a diet. However, measuring your
ketosis is much more helpful than counting kilos since this helps you trace more
exactly which lifestyle changes that make you burn fat and not. Different foods and
habits have very different effects on different people – this is why we are so excited
about individualised health monitoring. A bathroom scale cannot tell you that as
easily – how can you know which meal or lifestyle decision that made you add those
extra kilos? Kilos often accumulate too slowly to give a helpful guidance. Acetrack,
on the other hand, will tell you instantly or within a few hours. It can also help you to
plan your energy intake for when you know that you are burning fat.
Why should I use Acetrack and not a blood meter or urine meter?
We believe in individualised health monitoring and everyone is different, but we find
Acetrack much less cumbersome to use than blood meters or urine tests. Blood tests
can be painful and urine tests are not always exact since the amount of urine will
affect the concentration of acetone. The breathalyser is less intrusive and many of
our users also find it more hygienic.
How can I use these values to improve my metabolic health?
When you are saving your measurement results you can add a note about what you
have been eating during the day, if you exercised, slept well… for example, or any
other factor that you think could affect your results. This will help you to track the
lifestyle changes that works for you. We at Deversify are currently enhancing our
software to give you more tools for how you can analyse your values over time.
Where is my information stored?
Your measurements are all stored safely in the cloud.
How should I exhale in Acetrack to get successful measurements?
Exhale as steadily as possible with even pressure for approximately six seconds.
The pressure level is visually shown in the app while exhaling. But don’t worry too
much about time or pressure – thanks to its pressure sensor our Acetrack will check
that this is right for you.
Acetrack is the only acetone meter that has a pressure sensor built-in. We have
designed it like this this so you, as a user, will be able to do the same kind of exhale
every time you are measuring so you get consistent measurements.
Is the measured value affected by what you had in your mouth recently?
Yes, the device is sensitive to the conditions in your mouth so anything you have in
your mouth – it could be tobacco or chewing gum – could potentially affect your
measurements. This means that if you consume anything and then immediately
perform a test, you will receive higher measured values than you should have.
When is it best to measure ketosis?
It is good to measure your levels throughout the day to get to know your own
metabolism. Particularly informative times for measuring ketones are in the morning
before you have put anything in your mouth, directly after exercise or a couple of
hours after any meal or snack. We recommend that you wait at least 15 minutes
after you have eaten something.
Does menthol affect measured values?
Yes, anything with menthol will affect the measured value (for any breathalyser). For
example: mouth wash, chewing gum, tooth paste and cough drops.
Does alcohol affect measured values?
Yes, alcohol in your exhaled breath interferes with the acetone sensor in Acetrack
(and other breathalysers) meaning that the measured values are void. Alcohol has a
more long-term effect on your metabolism than other substances and you might
have to wait longer – up to a few hours depending on how much you have consumed
– before your next measurement.
Will dairy products affect measured values?
Yes, dairy products generate methane gases in your exhaled breath. This interferes
with the acetone sensor in Acetrack meaning that the measured values are void.
Will water intake affect my ppm levels?
No, water and coffee will not affect your ppm values.
I have been fasting and training hard, but my ppm levels are still not
You are probably burning muscles rather than fat. The body is put in starvation-mode
and tries to save energy by burning muscles rather than fat. This is another reason
for why Acetrack is useful: sometimes eating less is not the most strategic way to
lose weight. The body will consume carbohydrates first (and carbohydrates in the
form of alcohol first of all), then proteins and after that fat – unless it is in ‘starvation
mode’ – then it is consuming your body protein (your muscles) instead. Acetrack can
help you navigate between ‘healthy fasting’ and ‘starvation mode’.
Another tip is to be aware of ‘hidden carbohydrates’: maybe that wok sauce you had
with your keto-noodles yesterday contained more sugar than you were aware of?
Acetrack can help to reveal hidden sugar sources and carbohydrates you did not
Why does Acetrack show a yellow/green/blue light when it is turned on?
The yellow light means that the acetone sensor inside Acetrack is warming up. This
can take 3-5 minutes. When Acetrack shows a green light, it is ready to use. The
blue light means that it has Bluetooth on.
My Acetrack does not show a green light, or a light at all. What could be
Your device probably needs charging. Insert the micro-USB cable that came with
your Acetrack into the device and connect the cable to your local electricity outlet via
a mobile phone USB transformer. Just like you charge other electronic equipment.
Let charging continue for a minimum of one hour. Our recommendation is to treat
your Acetrack like your phone: charge during the night and use all day.
How do I connect my Acetrack and phone with Bluetooth?
Turn on Bluetooth on your phone and switch on your Acetrack. Click on ‘ready to
connect’ and then on ‘connect to device’. Acetrack’s light will then turn blue. This
means that a Bluetooth connection is established and that your Acetrack is paired
with your phone.
Why is Acetrack flashing a yellow light after the breathing test?
The flashing yellow light indicates that the sensor is resetting (scrubbing) from the
My Acetrack says that it is ‘scrubbing its sensors’ – what does this mean?
Scrubbing means that the sensor is resetting from the previous exhalation to make
sure the next measurement is exact. This is shown through the flashing yellow light
on the device.
