Influenster | Vicks® SmartTemp™

Author: Jess (The Cozy Reader) Genre: »

I received the Vicks SmartTemp thermometer for free via Influenster for my honest opinion.

This is not my first go at a "smart" thermometer. The Vicks SmartTemp thermometer uses Bluetooth to wirelessly connect to your smartphone. You have to download the app to use this thermometer. It supports Android and iPhone.

The app is easy to use. I have added profiles for each member of my family. The thermometer takes temperatures quickly. There are three options for use: oral, underarm and rectal. That means you can use this for any member of the family no matter their age.

The thermometer device it self is about the size of a normal thermometer. The difference is there is no digital screen to read the actual temperature. The only visual indicator on the device itself is color: green, yellow or red depending on the reading. The temperature read out shows on your smartphone instead.

The app stores the readings for each profile and even lets you add symptoms and notes for each reading. There is also the feature to remind to take temperature again or even medication reminders. Useful for when children or yourself are on antibiotics.

The device does require a battery. The app has a feature so that you can see exactly how much battery is left. A nice feature.

Overall, I like this smart thermometer. I may even like it better than the other smart thermometer I already had only because of the wireless feature and the overall appearance of the app.
