Tech geeks will absolutely love this fab thermometer from Nokia. Taking your conventional thermometer to whole new levels, this really is a game changer. Long gone are the days of the mercury thermometer popped under the tongue, we are well and truly past that point!
The Thermo is a temporal artery thermometer, which basically measures your temperature from the temporal artery on your head that has been scientifically proven to be the best place on the body to detect temperature changes as the blood circulates there from the core.
Connected to your WiFi, it is pretty amazing featuring an impressive 16 sensors that scan your forehead as you swipe across (no skin contact required which is great for kids, especially when they’re not feeling 100%) to pick up over 4,000 measurements to find the hottest point. There’s a lot of science behind the design, and a lot of technology to complement this; however I should say that to use, it’s pretty intuitive, you can switch on (battery operated) and go, or I’d recommend reading the instructions just so you can benefit from full use of the thermometer.
Reading the output of the thermometer is ever so easy, there’s a colour coded LED indicator that alerts you to any concerns such as elevated temperature based on the age.
And how does it know your age I hear you ask?! Linking the Thermo to a dedicated app on your phone adds more functionality so parents can start to build up a dashboard of reading to track temperatures, get reminders and use it as an all round go-to for any health queries with an information output if you prescribe your child’s symptoms.
The other benefit of the app is that you can build up profiles for different family members (device holds up to eight) so that you can set individuals profiles that align with data you input such as age, so the readings make a more accurate assessment based on individual health and trends.
