I love using this on my whole family. It is so easy and the reading comes out quickly and easily readable. I hate when someone feels terrible and i have to say i know you feel sick but can you put this under your tongue for a minute. Then they move or talk and the reading is inaccurate and you have to wonder did they just have a cup of something hot or cold?

I don't have to worry about this when i use the head thermometer i just swipe it across and bam reading and then i can get them the medicine they may need.

Got this far baby shower gift we love it if the baby is sleeping I just run over real fast instead of taking off all your clothes and trying to do it orally or under the armpit it's pretty accurate and he falling off by a few degrees it's a little bit expensive but we use it for cells use it for our kids and I think it really does work well I mean you don't have to completely undressed I'm just to get the temperature anymore so that's a plus

I was very excited when I purchased this from a local target. Although the idea of this product is convenient and time efficient the number don't seem to match with the average thermometer. There's room for improvement here with accuracy.

Concept, good. Product, horrible! It gives me 5-10different readings. How are you supposed to know the accurate temperature of your child if this thermometer isn't giving you a consistent accurate reading? I don't recommend

I bought this for my 4 year old that didn't like the other thermometers. This works great. Also works pretty good for infants too. It's worth the price. Would recommend for anyone with children. Love it.

I think I must've checked my babies temperature about 10 times a day in the beginning. This thermometer allows you not to have to invasively bother her while taking her temperature

I received this item from a VoxBox and am so pleased I did so. Thermometers seem to be the bane of my mom existence. The batteries are dead, out of covers for the ear one that requires them to work, the temperature seems oddly off, or it is taking super long while trying to calm a sick child, something is always certain to be a nuisance when temperature taking. I have not run into any of these problems yet, and both my children promptly got sick after receiving my VoxBox for me to test this out. Takes 2 "AA" batteries that can easily be stolen from any toy in a pinch. The thermometer takes quick, accurate temps. One time I got a reading that did seem high, so I simply took the temperature twice more to get the same lower temp both times. All this took under a minute!!! I will recommend this to all my mom friends.

At first I didn't see what was going to be so different about this thermometer compared to the other Braun forehead thermometer I own. So let me tell you, this thing is fancy! I absolutely LOVE the sound off and no feature! How many times have you checked your child's temp in the middle of the night and they wake up from the beeps! It is also very quick to read...super convenience to have the green, yellow and red background that shows if they are in a normal - high temp range! The only thing I dislike about the thermometer is the protective cap. It falls off if you don't really push it on, but it feels like you're breaking it if you push too hard. I love everything else about the thermometer though. **I received the Braun No touch +forehead thermometer complimentary for testing purposes.

I received this product for free to test and review. During the week that it arrived three of the four family members became sick, so we were able to use it a lot. The first reading is usually the most accurate. I found if I retested on the same person, the temperature reading went down by a couple of degrees. I did compare temperatures with my 5 year old boy between the Braun and a regular digital under the tongue thermometer. The touch to the forehead seemed to be closer to the under the tongue reading. I do like the ability to take the temperature quickly. I am never sure the under the tongue is correct with a moving child. I mostly used the touch instead of the no touch unless the baby was sleeping and I needed to take his temperature.
