I purchased this thermometer on the products promise that it stores the previous temperature taken, which saves me from having to turn on the light and write down my temperature and wake up the entire household every morning. What a disappointment to find this thermometer fails to do as promised.
It arrived calibrated to 97.7, no matter what time or day, or what my temperature is, when I turn it back on to retrieve my previous temperature, it ALWAYS reads 97.7.
The power button is so small, and hard to feel in the dark, that I fumbled for over a minute this morning trying to figure out how to turn the stupid thing on. It would be so much easier if the on/off button was raised so I knew where it was.
Also, I understand these things must be slow to take an accurate temperature, but the time it takes to read averages anywhere from 2-3 minutes which I find excessive. I had been temping with a cheap digital from Walgreens, and in less than a minute, I get the same readout as I do with this less time-efficient thermometer.
The only plus to this model, is that it reads temperatures out to the 1/100ths, but this along is not enough to convince me to keep this product.
I am returning it for a more user friendly alternative.
I fell in love with this thermometer, it is 1/100th accurate, which makes it great for my daughter, she is trying to get pregnant and they use this thermometer and downloaded the chart for keeping up with her ovulation and are hoping to have a little one on the way soon, but we also use for taking Temps when we get sick around here, and it even keeps the last temp on there if you forget,it is a actual temp thermometer not a predictive thermometer, it will take time to take your temp to let the probe fully adjust to the actual body temp, and produce most accurate results, focus on accuracy not speed, auto shut off after 5 minutes, go ahead and buy yourself one, you will be glad you did, thank you for this opportunity, I RECEIVED THIS ITEM FREE OR AT A DISCOUNTED PRICE FOR MY UNBIASED OPINION, THANK YOU.
I bought this thermometer for bbt measurement, and contrary to other reviewer’s opinions, I have found it difficult to use. I have wasted 2 cycles of tracking temperature trying to use this thermometer. To take your bbt, it should be first thing in the morning before you get up, so there is usually no light. The push button to power on the thermometer is too hard, and nearly impossible to find in the dark because it feels like the rest of the thermometer body. Sometimes, I power it on (and it beeps to let me know it is on), and I attempt to take my temperature while waiting as the alarm snoozes for 7 minutes. Then it never beeps to let me know it has completed - very frustrating. All while having these problems, I am becoming more awake, and can feel my temperature rising. When I finally do get a reading, I do not know if my temperature has risen too much to be able to notice a spike in the data during ovulation. This thermometer claims to be easy to use, but it is not. At the higher price point of this thermometer, it should perform much better than it does, that is why I have given it such a low rating.
I HATE this thermometer. I purchased it to use to track my BBT. I've been tracking my BBT for over a year and I was sad when my original thermometer died and was discontinued. This seemed like a great alternative but I was SO WRONG. First, the screen doesn't light up. So when I turn it on in the morning, in the dark before I get out of bed, I can't tell what the screen says, so I don't know if it's ready to use. Second, it doesn't beep! The instructions indicate that it will beep after 1 minute. But it doesn't. So there's no way to know when it's done taking your temperature. I'm going to look into returning it today. I am so disappointed. What a waste of money.
