Thomas, coach at a children’s athletics club, “Surprisingly easy to use”
About a month ago I purchased a MISURA smart thermometer that works thanks to a USB connection. I rate the speed of connection and the accuracy of the measurement very positively. The white thermometer with Apple connector came in a small box with instructions.
After unpacking, I was pleased to see that it is a really small affair that fits comfortably in a small pocket. The manufacturer claims a weight of only 12 grams. I assumed that I would have to install the thermometer via some app, but it was easier than I thought. I connected it to my phone, the large display lit up, and the thermometer waited for its first measurement. It’s a non-contact device, so you just point it at your forehead and within a second the temperature reading appears. There is no button to press anywhere to initiate a measurement, as is the case with a lot of other thermometers I’ve ever held in my hand
As a coach of kids in an athletic club, I often have to check the health of kids, especially their temperature, so I’m glad it’s this quick, painless and efficient. At the same time, when I’m not working, I can give the thermometer to any of my colleagues and they can take the measurements for me. I’m just tired of explaining to everyone over and over that there’s no need to install or set anything up. Nobody believes me and then they are surprised that I am right. It does bother me a little that I sometimes accidentally switch the Celsius degrees to Fahrenheit because my hands are so big and my thumb gets caught on the toggle button. But that’s more my problem and clumsiness. I also saw a black variant of the thermometer on the Misura website next to the product information, but nowhere could I find an option to buy it in that color. I’ve read that the thermometer beeps when a fever occurs, but so far I’ve been lucky enough that none of the kids have had a temperature yet
Finally, I would just like to mention that I like that the thermometer cannot be fooled in any way, e.g. it cannot be dipped in hot tea as it used to be done, so the readings are always true and correct
