In the rather small and distinctly mid-market box was the thermometer itself, a soft carry bag, two AAA batteries (pre-fitted) and a User Guide. The build quality of everything seems first rate, robust and well made. The User Guide is one of the best I have seen, comprehensive, well printed and easy to read. I include a scan of it in my unboxing video. Switch to full screen and pause to read it.
The device has a detachable head which reveals the plastic probe used when taking in ear measurements. The probe is kept covered for normal use. On the front, there is a Power/Measurement button, which is the only button you need to touch to take a reading. On one side there is the mode button used to choose between Ear, Object or Forehead use with next to it the button to the status beeps on or off. On the other side is the twenty number memory button. On the front is the backlit LCD display.
To operate the device just turn on using the main button, select Ear, Object or Forehand mode and press the main button again to take a reading. The temperature reading together with icons indicating the operating mode and audio status will appear backlit in the display. The display remains on but the backlight turns off a second or so later. The device can be used when in Object mode to take the temperature of any static item – bathwater, baby food, etc. You choose between F or C display by holding the memory button down for five seconds. To use the memory feature just press the memory button repeatedly to scroll through the last twenty recorded readings. The audio beep can be turned On or Off by the side button.
Using it could not be more simple. First with a straightforward one button press operation which displays the result on the thermometer LCD screen or on the phone app. It takes about one second to work and beeps loudly when the temperature reading is ready.
This is an attractive high tech thermometer and at £17.99 is far cheaper than the big name rivals although there are other even cheaper rivals available but which may lack the quality and features if this device.
