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.

    Very accurate but a little difficult to set up. Sometimes it does not work Dec 22, 2020

    If you are forgetful and don’t remember temps, this is for you! It also gives recommendations in the app based on temp. App is very easy to navigate and offers good information. Dec 21, 2020

  • I found it to be very accurate and user friendly besides needing attachment for the phone. I wish it was Bluetooth for it to be an awesome product. But keeps log of temps and what method. Color coded Nov 07, 2020

  • Love that I can pair with my phone and save temperature. Give results fast. Easy to read results. Nov 02, 2020

  • This thermometer is a must have for parents. It is highly accurate and easy to use. It keeps a memory in the app of temperatures and symptoms from previous uses and gives suggestions for further steps Oct 18, 2020

    I had this one before I discovered the Kinsa ear thermometer. This one was no longer compatible with my iPhone, so it was an easy switch. Jun 08, 2020

    I have loved this thermometer and the app for many years. It has been accurate and is quick. I appreciate how I can enter symptoms along and I can have a profile for all members of my family. Apr 24, 2020

  • Easy to use and convenient. The app lets you store temps for different family members. We found the oral reading to be less accurate but that could be user error. Apr 24, 2020

  • I Purchased the Kinsa Smart Thermometer when my first son was born. It is small and very convenient to pack for weekend trips etc. It seems to be very accurate and my kids don’t mind using it Apr 23, 2020

  • Thankfully haven’t needed to use it more than once for my 4 month old. Easy to use! Feb 21, 2020

  • Love that this connects to my iPhone and keeps record of the temperatures for me! Easy to use and mom friendly! Feb 02, 2020

  • 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!)
