If ever there was a year to own a reliable thermometer, 2020 is it. Of course, a trusty temperature-taker is a key component of the family medicine cabinet even during non-pandemic years. Babies get their fair share of fevers, and knowing your child’s exact temperature is crucial in identifying next steps. You need something that’s easy to use, accurate and gives nearly instant readings. The Withings Thermo is a smart temporal thermometer that requires no contact for temperature reads. In addition to providing medical-grade results, the Thermo syncs with an app, allowing you to track temperatures, set reminders for medication and input associated symptoms for up to eight family members. Readings appear on the device instantly, along with a color-coded LED light that indicates a normal, elevated or high temperature based on the age of the user. And thanks to interior illumination, you can take your little one’s temperature in the middle of the night without even turning on the lights.
• The thermo has 16 infrared sensors to deliver a super-accurate read, no contact required
• Data from every measurement automatically saves in the app so you can track the rise or fall of a temp, set reminders for medication or even get advanced health advice
• The Thermo illuminates from within, allowing you to take a child’s temperature in the dark with ease; three color-coded LED lights indicate normal to elevated reads based on the age of the user—no deliberating over high or low-grade
• You can program up to eight family members into the Thermo to save their medical history, making it easily shareable with your child’s doctor
