First Response, you know, the pregnancy test company, have something new for those who need to know if they’re expecting or not — a pregnancy test via Bluetooth.
This pregnancy test will be similar to once you can buy at any retail store, but the only difference is you won’t see a plus or minus on it. Instead, you’ll receive the news on your iOS or Android device. Use of this device is pretty simplistic as you’ll just need to download the “First Response Pregnancy Pro” app to the device, phone or tablet, and then pair the pee stick.
Once you open the app it’ll ask you two questions to get to know you a little more. “Are you planning to or currently trying to get pregnant” and “First day of last menstrual period.” Either one of those you choose will change the experience when going through the application. Next step is to pretty much go into the bathroom and do your business as you would on a normal pregnancy test. After you’re done with that, now you wait the usual three minutes, but here’s the fun part. It has options to calm you down while waiting if you’re impatient. Three options will appear “calm me,” “educate me,” and “entertain me.” Educate me will show you some information, calm me will show some breathing exercises, and entertain me will show videos from Buzzfeed.
Now that your three minutes are up after watching some funny videos, the application will ask for the security code that will be found on the pregnancy test stick. The app will then let you know if you’re pregnant by saying “Congratulations! Pregnant” and provide useful information about your pregnancy at this point and if you’re not pregnant, the app will say “Not Pregnant.” According to the packaging, the test is >99% accurate.
If you’re looking to try one of these out, either being curious to see how it really is or just for fun, you’ll be shelling out $15 to around $20 depending on where you purchase it from. This isn’t one that you can reuse, so if you want another, you’ll be paying for it again. One time use only folks.
