Top critical review
Seems to be inconsistent
Reviewed in the United States on February 18, 2020
This thermometer didn’t get the full five stars, because of the inconsistent (and maybe inaccurate) readings. However, it didn’t get just one star because it was easy to use. With that said, let’s get on to the review. .
I’ve been sick for a couple of days, and I probably have a fever. In addition to feeling warmer than usual, I’ve had a slight headache. I would take my temperature, and it would say I had a fever (100, 101, and I got 102 once). I would check it again to confirm, and it would read 98.7. Sometimes I’d do a recheck immediately after the first reading; sometimes I’d recheck 5 minutes later. I’ve even tried taking readings before and after being covered with a thin blanket. The results would vary, greatly. So, it’s hard to know if this thermometer. Is accurate.
Other than that, I like that I can get the results in less than a second. All you do is hold down the scan button, swipe your forehead and let go of the button. I’ve used oral thermometers, and they take what seems to be a long time to get your results.
