Ease of use

Good points

  • Display is easy to read.
  • Clear instructions (although print is small).
  • Has fever indicator.

But

  • Tested accuracy of 2.0°C on ear and 0.4°C on forehead measurements was lower than claimed.
  • Phillips screwdriver needed to unscrew battery cap.

How we test

We tested accuracy by comparing readings with an accurate digital probe thermometer.

We also assessed how easy it was to turn each thermometer on and off, plus change the battery. We also checked the quality of instructions, display, and audible signals.
