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