Kinsa Inc., maker of the Kinsa smartphone-connected thermometer, will soon be making available its new Kinsa Smart Ear Thermometer.Kinsa

The in-ear device, designed primarily for pediatric use, automatically syncs up with Kinsa’s app to upload readings and track them over time.

The app makes suggestions to see a doctor and potential causes

if the fever lasts long enough or if the temperature crosses certain

thresholds, and does this with the person’s age andadditional

symptoms in mind.

It will also let you know if there arecertain infections known to be going

around in your area.

Interestingly, the sensor tip doesn’t use covers, supposedly being easy enough to clean.

The device can be used without a smartphone, having its own illuminated display that is easy to see even when taking readings at night.
