I have seen similar versions of this at my local pharmacy and always walked passed it. The ones I saw looked not well-made and somehow I convinced myself that nothing can beat a normal thermometer. When I came across this Vera Non-Contact Thermometer, I wanted to try it. It looked sleek and simple to use without many complicated buttons. Not knowing what and where to press when I am in a urgent situation, is not something I would look forward to.
When it arrived, it was really sleek and very user-friendly. I liked that it came with a little pouch that can hold the thermometer when not in use. It looks like a "serious" tool. My son brought it in its bag and said"Mommy, this is not a toy". I was really glad that it was made not to look like a toy in bright colors with disney characters. I am pretty sure that such a thermometer will not last long in my house.
I had the chance to use it a couple of times and it seemed to give accurate readings. My son had fever and I did not. So just to cross check, I took my body temperature and it showed it right.I used it in the forehead. It showed a higher temperature for my son. There is an option to measure in centigrade and fahrenheit. I will mostly use it when we are sick and very unlikely to check any other temperature. But Kidz-Med suggests other uses for this thermometer.
I love the non-contact feature as it is a GREAT feature. My son hates to be woken up in his sleep and will cry his lungs out if we wake him up. So this is perfect for us! If you have little ones at home, this is something worth having.
It retails for $39.88 at Amazon.com / available at Shoppers Drug Mart and Jean Coutu in Canada.
