Why weeLove Kinsa Smart Ear Thermometer:

Attention parents of squirmy babies and stubborn toddlers: there’s a new thermometer that makes dreaded temperature taking easier on everyone.

The Kinsa Smart Ear Thermometer is a sick day savior, providing an instant, accurate reading with the press of a button. It wirelessly syncs to the Kinsa iOS or Android app on your smartphone, tracking fever data so your frazzled mind can focus on other to-dos for your little patient. You can create profiles for every family member, store temperature readings, log medications and dosages, record symptoms with photos (which makes for more efficient doctor’s visits), and get the 411 on illnesses going around in your area. It even offers guidance on next steps from medical experts. Better yet, it’s so fast and simple, you can take the temp of a sleeping baby without risking a wakeup.

weeLove their first smart thermometer and this second-generation version (available for pre-order now!) delivers even more sick day support. With cold and flu season just around the corner, we’ll take any bit of extra help we can get.

  • It provides an accurate temperature very quickly. I love how the app helps you keep track of the temperatures and any medication given for ease of telling the doctor. you can also add multiple kids! Mar 06, 2020

  • I would get different readings each time I took my children’s temperatures. Jan 26, 2020

  • Only been used a couple of times so far, but it’s easy to set up and use. It reads quickly and I love that you can keep track of temperature readings on your phone! Jan 23, 2020

  • I have the regular Kinsa thermometer and this ear probe doesn’t seem accurate. It always shows a pretty low temp and doesn’t seem right to me Jan 07, 2020

  • So much easier to use than the unreliable forehead thermometer. Reads in one second which is great for a wiggly LO. Jan 06, 2020

  • I'm not sure about the accuracy of this device, if I stick it in the left ear the temperature is always a low grade fever but in the right ear it is a normal temperature. Jan 05, 2020

  • I have this and it works great! I haven't used it to it's full potential with the app though. Jan 03, 2020

  • Kinsa thermometer makes it quick and easy to take temp. The app is easy and keeps memory. Dec 29, 2019

  • We received this as a gift. The concept and look is great. It is super easy to use. We like the app, but wondering how accurate it is. Oct 24, 2019

  • I didn’t love this product. My daughter was a preemie but her ears were just too small for this to work for her! Otherwise I think I would of liked it Aug 27, 2019

  • Quick fast and baby doesn’t mind Aug 24, 2019

  • Loved this! Way more convenient than the under the tongue method! I’m Jun 10, 2019

  • I bought this as a house hold thermometer and it has been amazing. You need to clean it in between uses but I would recommend that anyways especially if sharing it with multiple children Jun 09, 2019

    I use it often but it doesn’t sync as easily as I thought it would so it doesn’t save automatically to the profiles Jun 08, 2019

  • Quick & easy temperature readings. Whole family is able to be tracked on the companion app. Highly recommend Jun 04, 2019

  • We received this as a gift and it rarely works. I do like that the app on your phone tracks the temps but you can't take multiple at once. So if you get a reading and want to verify, you must wait. May 23, 2019

  • Very quick and simple! Besides the initial set up with the app, everything else was simple! Very quick reading. Love that I can set up profiles for my family, and keep track of multiples. May 23, 2019

    Convenient, easy, and fun to use! Our pediatrician let me know checking temperature by ear isn't as reliable as more invasive methods... But for "just checking" purposes, this is marvelous! May 04, 2019

  • It can be difficult to get a good reading with a squirmy baby but the fast read definitely provides some value when dealing with a newborn! May 01, 2019

  • Love this Kinsa even though we haven't hooked it up to our phone; we just use it as a regular thermometer. My toddler doesn't mind us using it on her either which is great. Apr 25, 2019

  • Our daughter is still using the regular thermometer, but we can't wait to graduate her to the Ear Thermometer when she's older. We LOVE the Kinsa app! Apr 22, 2019
