To our valued Breathometer Community,
As we begin the new year, we want to take a moment to convey our appreciation for your ongoing support of our brand. Thanks to you, today we are a recognized pioneer in breath analysis technology.
As you may have heard, we recently agreed to settle a Federal Trade Commission inquiry related to certain statements included in the marketing of our alcohol breathalyzer products, Original and Breeze. We chose to settle in order to focus on our mission:
Building a digital health platform powered by breath analysis to help improve people’s lives.
We feel it is important to clarify that this settlement does not undermine our achievements in creating quality consumer health devices. We proactively stopped manufacturing Original and Breeze in 2015 prior to the FTC’s inquiry. We stand behind our current product, Mint, and its quality and pioneering technology.
When Breathometer was founded in 2012, our goal was to harness cutting-edge technology to deliver meaningful information about your body to you, immediately. Since then, we’ve evolved from a SharkTank sensation to a more mature company with a dedicated and talented leadership team with decades of collective experience in the medical device industry. We are firmly united in our effort to deliver best-in-class connected products that help everyday consumers monitor their body in meaningful ways.
In September of 2016, we proudly launched the first smartphone connected oral health monitor, Mint. Mint measures volatile sulfur compounds in the mouth, which can be an indicator of poor oral health. It was a milestone achievement for us to offer a simple and connected experience that provides individuals with a smarter way to monitor their oral hygiene.
Also in 2016, we celebrated a landmark agreement to supply the Mint technology to a major industry partner to include in its top-selling oral care package.
We are also grateful to have earned the trust and financial support of distinguished investors who enable us to continue to pioneer new consumer applications for breath analysis devices.
We are eagerly looking ahead to a bright 2017. We have groundbreaking products in development and are excited for the opportunity to continue delivering innovative breath sensing technology combined with superior design and usability with the goal of improving your overall health.
Thank you for your support of Breathometer and we wish you all good health in the coming year.
