Thermometers are a must when there’s a sick child about, but not all of them are easy to use. We’ve found one that will change the way you take temperatures and track health. With bluetooth communication and no contact required, Flo is a must have for modern families.
There are so many benefits to regularly checking temperature. With children and babies it means more accurate detection of health issues. For women looking to conceive it can mean better tracking of ovulation cycles and even detecting conception before some pregnancy tests can.
But who has time to log all that information in an organised way and know what it means? Well, the Flo thermometer can do that for you. This digital thermometer does not need to make contact to get a reading, which means you don’t have to wake baby to check if they have a fever when unwell, plus less chance of spreading germ to and from other family members.
As parents we want something that is super simple to use, so Flo has a one button operation. Just point the thermometer at your child’s forehead and press the button, that’s all it takes. An led light on the thermometer tells you whether the reading is cold, normal, or feverish while more detailed data is sent to an app on your smartphone or smartwatch.
If it comes time for a doctor’s visit you have detailed temperature data right there in your pocket that you can hand over to give your GP a deeper understanding of your child’s health. And while these images show temperature information in fahrenheit, it can register in celsius too.
You can even use it to test the temperature of baby’s bath water or bottle. Genius.
The Flo thermometer is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to get into the production phase. It finishes in a few days so get in quick if you want to get one of the very first Flo thermometers at a reduced price. For a pledge of US$27 or more you can support this great project plus get a Flo sent out with the very first shipment due in May this year.
