  • Requires contact on forehead

While this thermometer may not be entirely no-contact, it is pretty close. It works by gently touching the temple, and it provides an accurate reading every time. It lets out a beep and red LED light when the reading is complete and is great for taking the temperature of all ages. Unfortunately, the screen is a bit small, so it could be easier to read.

If you want as much info as possible, you can’t go wrong with this smart thermometer. It takes an accurate reading in two seconds when you hold it close to the temple and sends the result to an app on your phone. The app will then store your temperature and is able to keep track of your temperatures over time so that you can see trends in your temperature and recognize when something is off as well as keeping a log of any medications you may be taking. It also allows you to store up to 8 profiles so you can keep track of your whole family.
