Why weeLove the Kinsa Thermometer:

From Googling to photo taking, booking babysitters to ordering diapers – smartphones can simplify almost every aspect of parenting. Now you can add dealing with sick days to that list…

  Kinsa, a smart thermometer paired with an app, helps you track your child’s temperature and symptoms over the course of an illness. This FDA-approved thermometer plugs into your smartphone (no batteries required). Through the app, you can create profiles for everyone in your family to keep tabs on temperatures, medications, and symptoms. This especially comes in handy during chaotic doctor’s visits when you’re trying to grab the stethoscope from your busy baby while giving an ear infection play-by-play. Thanks to Kinsa, you can just hand over your phone.

  The app’s user-interface is easy for mom and dad to navigate and fun for your tot – there’s a bubble popping animation that runs during the 10 seconds it takes to get a reading. Future versions of the app will offer custom community group creation, for example a daycare, playgroup or neighborhood.  So, you’ll soon be able to see the big picture of what’s going on in your area.

  With Kinsa, next time your kiddo is sick… you’ll be cool as a cucumber.

  • I don’t like that I have to plug this into the phone i didn’t read up before I bought they have a blu tooth version of this I would have gotten that. But it does work great Sep 07, 2019

    Love the ease-of-use for this thermometer. The app is great at giving advice and keeping track of measurements. Small and compact. Sep 06, 2019

  • I got this as a baby shower gift & wanted to love it, but it wasn't what I was expecting. Because it had to be connected to my phone, the cord always got in the way or the baby would grab it. Aug 21, 2019

  • The few times I’ve used it it was great. My son was barely ever sick so I used it mostly on kids I babysat Jul 19, 2019

  • This is such an easy product to use. I love how it has features on the app to guide you steps to take & record multiple temperatures. It also has tips & medication time reminders. May 16, 2019

  • I don’t know that it’s more convenient than using your standard thermometer. However, I do like that I can create profiles for each of my children on the app and keep record of their fevers. Apr 29, 2019

    Does what we need it to do. Is nice to have app to keep track of temps. Apr 29, 2019

  • LOVE this product! It gives you a reading really quickly and syncs to the Kinsa app so you don't have to remember what the temperature was. You can also record any symptoms your baby is having and med Apr 22, 2019

  • Rarely use it. Annoying you have to physically attach to phone. Not worth the purchase Apr 11, 2019

  • I bought this for me but wound up using it for my baby. You plug it into your smartphone and it asks you your symptoms and then tells you if you should go see a doctor or not. Pretty handy. Apr 05, 2019

  • I really enjoy the fact that this thermometer takes a temp in 1 second since I have two wiggly toddlers. The app that goes with the thermometer is an added bonus. The features on the app are great! Feb 24, 2019

  • I don’t feel like this ever gave is a good read on my son’s temperature. Feb 22, 2019

  • Q: Does anyone know if future versions will be a forehead/ temporal artery thermometer?

    asked by Tracy V. - Apr 03, 2015

  • They've said that an Infrared Ear thermometer is coming out soon! But not sure about the forehead/temporal artery thermometer.. (unfortunately, I don't think forehead thermometers are as accurate as oral/rectal ones. wish they were!)
