  • (what's this?)

    not a great choice if your child's issue is with their ears, you pull the ears and if your child is the squirmy type, you will have a difficult time using this. I'd prefer the reg thermometer. Jun 20, 2017

    Our daughter hates having anything near her ear, but this thermometer is such a fast read that it makes taking her temperature a lot easier! May 09, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    This thermometer is inaccurate by a relatively concerning amount (with the difference being that this one read as 97.6 while a regular thermometer read as 101.3-one a fever, one not). Not great. Apr 26, 2017

  • I received this thermometer as a gift from the weeSpring Parent Panel. This thermometer is great, easy to use, and very accurate. I recommend this product to everyone! Apr 25, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    Easy to use & gives a quick reading. App sync feature is a great bonus. The large downfall was the inconsistent readings I got on myself, husband and 18 mo old with multiple tries in both ears. Apr 24, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    As a "smart" thermometer it falls short due to the app only allowing 1 child profile. So for 1 kid I can use it as intended, for the other I have to pretend it isn't smart and track via pen and paper Apr 21, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    I received this thermometer as a gift from the weeSpring Parent Panel. I love that it was really quick and kept track of the temps for me. I didn't like how I got different readings based on the angle Apr 19, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    I received this ear thermometer as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel. I've been very happy with it thus far, was used it on four separate occasions. I think it's accurate and the app has been helpful Apr 18, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    I found this thermometer to be very quick and accurate. The only challenge I had was figuring out the correct position/angle for my 19 month old son. I like the app and the tracking it provides. Apr 17, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    I was very pleased with the accurateness and speed of this thermometer! It was so quick, which is great for my son who doesn't like things in his ears. The app helped with tracking temps as well! Apr 13, 2017

    Fast and easy operation. The readings are quick and you don't have to hold a kid down to get them. Consistently reads one degree lower than my temporal, but the ease of use will keep me coming back. Apr 12, 2017

    Gives an inaccurate reading for temperatures. Does read temps quickly though! Apr 11, 2017

  • (what's this?)
    • Erika A.
    • San Francisco, California

    Once I figured out the correct angle to use it properly, this thermometer was easy enough to use. I like how quick it takes a temperature and how it lights up red if the temperature is too high. Apr 10, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    This thermometer doesn't provide an accurate reading for my very cooperative 18 month old, but it's fast and accurate for adults and older children. The app is great--easy to use and very useful. Apr 10, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    I love how easy to use & accurate this thermometer is even on wiggly toddlers. I also love how the app stores readings so you dont have to try to remember yet another thing when you have a sick kiddo! Apr 07, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    This is great for older kids and adults. It's comfortable, quick, easy to use and accurate for this age range. However with my 18 month old it's hard to get an accurate temperature. I like the app. Apr 07, 2017

    This is much quicker than our temporal version and I really like the size of the tip which is perfect for baby ears. Definitely recommend. Apr 07, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    Super easy to set up and use, no cords to upload temps to phone app! Only downside is that temps less accurate for smaller children so wouldn't recommend for young toddlers and babies. Apr 07, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    Super easy to use thermometer, with a very fast and easy to read temperature reading. My toddler doesn't fight against using this! We love this thermometer. Apr 07, 2017

    Much more accurate than the temporal thermometers. Gives very fast readings. Our whole family uses it. Apr 06, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    Temperatures were very unreliable. I could mostly get an accurate reading on myself but rarely on my children. Also reset time for another temp was too long Apr 06, 2017

  • We love a lot of things about this thermometer. It's VERY accurate and has a quick measurement reading and the large LED display is also really helpful. Best thermometer out there, hands down. Apr 04, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    So I want to really like this thermometer. We've tried several thermometers and different types. I believe the ear ones are the easiest to use, and this thermometer is very fast, but I'm not sure how Apr 03, 2017

    Super quick temp-taking, about a degree lower than rectal. Small & simple, easy to use though it can be fussy and take a few tries to get it to read a temp. Overall, easier than rectal or armpit. Apr 03, 2017

  • I got this as a part of the weespringparentpanel.My 19mo son loves it, he wants his temperature taken in both ears.The app needs improvement, can't delete readings.Iwould use the app for a younger kid Feb 21, 2017

    I got this thermometer as part of the weespring parent panel. I wanted to love it and I do love that it works very quickly... when it works. It's a little fussy and some of the readings are off. Feb 21, 2017

  • I love how quickly you can get the temperature. Unfortunately it doesn't sync to my phone. Jan 21, 2017

  • I love how fast it takes a temperature. I didn't find it very user friendly. The directions were dense and I keep having trouble syncing the readings. Jan 10, 2017

    • Inwood, West Virginia

    I tried this thermometer as part of the Wee Spring Parents Panel. I love that it connects to my phone and can easily sync the readings for easy tracking. It reads quickly - highly recommend. Jan 05, 2017

  • It's a great thermometer for older kids, but hard to use on my infant son. He doesn't hold still so getting an accurate temp on him is hard. I really like how small it is and how fast it reads! Dec 31, 2016

  • Quick and easy to use! Dec 29, 2016
