The Baby Gizmo Must Have Monday is back and this time we are sharing an innovative smart thermometer that will change the way that you take and monitor your child’s temperature!
Sure, you can take your child’s temperature the old fashioned way by sticking a thermometer under their tongue, under their arm or scanning it across their forehead, but kids don’t always like that and it only tells you their temperature that that particular time. What about when they are sick and it’s the middle of the night, and you want to know if they still have a fever? What do you do? You sneak in their room and end up waking them to take their temperature. Didn’t anyone ever tell you not to wake a sleeping child? But you want to know if their fever is getting worse or better, right?
Today we have the answer for you!
It’s the Fever Scout.
It’s a smart thermometer that provides continuous monitoring of your child’s temperature. This soft, wearable thermometer measures temperature and wirelessly sends that information to your smartphone or tablet. That’s right, you’ll be able to continuously monitor your child’s temperature when they are sick without disrupting their sleep whether you’re in another room or city! The information from the Fever Scout is transmitted through low-energy bluetooth.
The thermometer sticks right to the skin with the included adhesives under the child’s arm. It’s a small, flexible, soft device designed not to disrupt your child. Once you’ve synced up the Fever Scout thermometer patch to the free Fever Scout app on your phone, you’ll be able to see what your child’s (or loved one’s) temperature is without having to poke and prod them. Because no-one wants to disturb a sick loved one.
Fever Scout includes a cableless charging dock (3 AAA batteries included), so it is available whenever needed. One charge of the patch should last one week, and to recharge it, you just set it back on the charging dock.
The Fever Scout app is compatible with iOS and Android, and not only monitors and displays the temperature, but it also allows you to set an alert so that an alarm will notify you if their temperature goes higher than the temp you set. The app has a history chart to track your child’s temperature to see improvement and you can even share that information via text or email with other people from the app. So the babysitter and family members can all share the information! Plus, the app will record temperature even when your phone is in sleep mode.
I love that the app also has a notes section that will allow you to log your child’s symptoms and medicine taken.
Fever Scout is not just a child’s thermometer; whether it is to monitor your baby, child, grandparent or husband, this is an advanced wireless smart thermometer for those of any age. Since Fever Scout makes the perfect baby gift for new moms and dads to help them have peace of mind through those restless nights when their child is sick, we decided that you needed to know about it, and that it was worthy of being the Must Have Monday item!
Fever Scout retails for $59 and is available in Best Buy stores and online at Target.com and Amazon.com
