Withings launches non-contact smart phone connected thermometer

Withings launched a new thermometer – Thermo. A fast, simple, non-contact gesture yields the most precise temperature possible, and automatic sync with the dedicated app also allows users to track temperature readings, get reminders, and input related symptoms/medications right on smartphone.


Thermo measures from the temporal artery, considered the best place to detect temperature changes, as the blood that circulates there comes from the core of the body. As Thermo sweeps across the forehead, 16 infrared sensors take over 4,000 measurements to find the hottest point. This is the revolutionary advance, and is what we call HotSpot Sensor™ Technology.

An exceedingly simple scan across the forehead requires no contact with the skin. Unlike traditional methods, Thermo avoids any contact with saliva, earwax or other body fluids — making it the most sanitary way to take anyone’s temperature.

Readings appear illuminated on the device along with a color-coded LED indicator to tell you if the temperature is normal, elevated or high based on the age of the user.

Measurements sync automatically with your smartphone. Based on age, fever history, and symptoms, the Thermo app gives advanced health advice. In addition to tracking temperature and symptoms, users can enter comments, medications, and even photos in any user profile. This helps users see if the treatment is effective and allows users to have a complete history to share with a doctor.
