Super helpful!!! 5/5
I can’t say how happy I am to have this thermometer! The app is great too! It is so helpful to be able to use the thermometer in any phone with the app. Great for late nights when your child has been sick a few days. It helps keep track of the last temp reading or what time you gave medication.
Kinsa Mom of Two 5/5
The Kinsa is amazing! Easy to use, takes quick readings. I love how you can save the temperatures and it says the date and time they were taken. Also very handy that you can fill out symptoms. I have an 8 year old and a 3 month old so it’s great that the app holds profiles for each family member. We use the Kinsa stick because it doesn’t need batteries unlike the Kinsa ear. I recommend this thermometer to all my friends with kids and babies.
Kinsa Thermometer 5/5
By B' Garcia
We have used it for the past 4 yrs! We love the fast results, and the girls like to pop the bubbles while they wait!
By Mtisha B
Best thermometer I’ve ever had! So much info and so helpful!
Love this App! 5/5
This app with the thermometer is amazing! It will take the temperature and you can add what sytoms your child has at that time as well. Big help when you visit the Doctor.. you can give him everything in detail!
Love Kinsa! 5/5
We are a family of 6! The kinsa helps us keep track of everyone’s medical situation. During flu season when all 4 kids had the flu it was wonderful.
The app allows you to keep track of symptoms and medications for each child.
Best thermometer yet! 5/5
I love this one, even the older model (got it in 2015). My kids like the technology. My youngest is very sensory and it’s the first one that I have gotten him to use without his gag reflex being a problem.
Not accurate 1/5
I’ve had a device for about three months and he keeps getting worse yesterday when I plugged it in and gave me 95.9 today I tried to use it again and give me 96.9 when my child was running a fever of 102. It’s a piece of crap don’t waste your money
2 thermometers 🌡 1/5
By Serhii Aksiutin
1) Smart stick - an extension cable break after a year of normal usage bad had no problem with sync!
2) QuickCare - was fine until my household members measurements start coming to my phone. I don’t want to keep their profile. They have their own iPhones and their own Health apps to sync and store their data for history.
Love this! 5/5
Bought it on amazon. Absolutely love this! Recommend for all parents.
By i look good in pink
I own two of these thermometers and they work perfectly and the app is real easy to use
Love this! 5/5
By Ali Pace
I have use god knows how many thermometers and it nice that this one actually works, and provides clear and easy readings. What’s even nicer is that it records every reading on the app so you don’t have to remember or manually readings. Worth every penny.
Love it! 5/5
By Creele a Dios
This app and this Kinsa thermometer is great and the way it saves all the information in my phone is just easy and great. I recommend this to family and friends.
Not accessible - STILL. 1/5
Does not meet Apple guidelines for accessibility. Asked about that glaring fault - Kinsa replied that they had 'no plans' to make their app accessible.
Total fail - deleted app
Low temp reading...always 1/5
There's no way my baby is always 95 degrees Fahrenheit. There's no way my mouth is always 97 degrees either. I hate how every reading is saved and don't save isn't an option. I dislike how you have to put the thermometer in right before reading. I think I'll go old school.
Best thermometer 5/5
Love that you can do multiple people. Great for my 4 YO grandson
So far so good 4/5
Easy to use so far so good
Great Temperature Device and Phone App 5/5
I bought this Thermometer last year when my husband and I had the flu and all of my Battery Thermometers had dead batteries. Problem is, today when I needed to use it, I realized that it requires a headphone port and my newly updated iPhone 8 doesn’t have a headphone port. I had an IPhone 6 when I bought the Kensa Thermometer.
I did some internet searching and learned that an adapter came with my new iPhone 8 and sure enough I found it still in the box that the phone came in. Now I’m back to using this Thermometer and it’s working beautifully. Maybe this info will help someone else with an updated iPhone. I think IPhone 7 also has no headphone jack. Not sure if it included the adapter though.
Great family thermometer! 5/5
I love the ease of having something that I can use for everyone in the family and records it in one place.
This is a lifesaver! 5/5
This is the best thermometer I’ve ever owned. It keeps all my data in one place and it makes doctors appointments a breeze. I think this would make a fantastic gift for a new parent and a perfect baby shower gift. If you are in the market for thermometer look no further
Great App 5/5
My daughter and I love this app. She especially likes the bubbles (even though she’s 9) and reading the information detailing whether or not she has a fever!
LOVE KINSA THERMOMETER! 5/5
I love that it records the temperatures so when I’m in the hustle and bustle of a cold sweeping through my home I don’t have to records temps for doctors visits, it’s right here on my phone!
Well maintained 5/5
I use daily on iPhone & iPad. Even the ads that keep it free make sense.
Can't even setup 1/5
By Zeke Torres
When using it for the second time it was at first saying too hot to operate. This was right after I had taken it out of the box in winter (mind you). So I tried to set it up again and it would just not setup. I can say it is pretty much new since we had only used it once before.
Ease your mind & purchase Kinsa Thermometer 5/5
Highly recommend this app . I love this thermometer purchased it at Target for my little one and can’t wait to use it for the whole family. I love how it gives you three different options to take the temperature to get an accurate result as well as the variety of tools the app provides . Being a first time mom this has came in handy!
Doesn’t work 1/5
I have been trying to get it to calibrate for over an hour! So frustrating!
By fantasy feet
why would anyone want to do a 9 step process, download an app and digitize their mf temp, I threw it away and went to walgreens to buy an old fashioned thermometer
Works great! 5/5
I’m confused with the bad reviews. You don’t even have to use your phone to use the thermometer. If you want to log the readings, you need the app. Pairs easily, works great! Only a couple of areas that might be better:
- Allow the user to make one of the profiles the default, so you don’t have to assign each reading to a person
- the thermometer seems to be about one degree low. Our doctor said it is a common thing for this kind of thermometer, so maybe that’s it. As long as you know it reads about a degree low, you’re fine.
Neither of those things make me take away a whole star, so ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ it is!
Piece of crap 1/5
Worked five times and then that's it. Keeps telling me to plug in the thermometer when it's already plugged in. Don't waste your money.
Doesn’t work 1/5
Wont let me set up on my iPhone 7. Keeps saying “oops. Something isn’t right” during the setup process. Seeing as how multiple people have had this issue (reading other reviews), it’s obviously a problem with the thermometer / app itself.
Easy & Saves History 5/5
Once everything is set up, it's so simple to take temperatures and keep our family's history in one place. I like that we can track our symptoms too.
Won’t calibrate. Same problem as others. 1/5
By Billy beer is still the best!!
Won’t calibrate due to sound. Centered and checked the rest of the recommended list. Just downloaded app, so it is updated. Phone is updated. Seems to be a big issue with the responses from the developer being confusion. How hard is it to get the app to work consistently on an OS that millions use? Apparently very hard. Perfect example of technology solving a problem no one had. My $9 cheap thermometer is back in service. Shame on me for wasting my money.
Hate it 1/5
By Mix daddy fresh
Was already frustrated by the setup process but when the app marketed to me that’s the last straw! I just need my babies temperature. Quickly and accurately. Don’t want to go hunting down my phone to get that.
First read under the arm was too cold as well. I just have no confidence in the accuracy of this and it’s way too much going on for a thermometer.
This is going straight back to the store so I can get a Better one.
Didn’t work for me... 1/5
By $Mike R
Call me old school but this is exactly why I was reluctant to invest in a smart thermometer. I couldn’t even set my thermometer up as it wouldn’t calibrate on both mine and my wife’s iPhone 7. I had to run to my local pharmacy to buy something quick. I’m sure we’ll get it to work eventually but as a parent it needs to work when it’s NEEDED.
I recommended by mom of 4 4/5
I tell everyone about this thermometer! I love it. The fact that it has profiles for the whole family, I can keep track of everything in one place, when the doctor asks when something happened or symptoms started I can actually be confident that I’m giving an accurate answer 👍 (even when loopy from lack of sleep 😴)
Never need to worry about the batteries in the thermometer again 🤗🤗
I have been frustrated on a couple of occasions with not being able to get an accurate reading on the first, or second, attempt. Which is maddening when trying to care for a sick infant. 😠
Overall though this is by far my favorite new baby gadget.
Does different temperatures 4/5
Every time I use my kinsa more that once it gets different temperatures so I'm always not sure. But still it's a great Item and great Except for that problem.
Total garbage. The app keeps saying the thermometer is too warm to work when taking the temperature of someone with a fever. Went through the help guides to troubleshoot this and it still doesn’t work. Returning for refund!
It works great! I forgot that I didn’t have it calibrated with my new phone.
Works fine, but not the forced save... 3/5
The stick and app have always worked fine for me. What I’m not a fan of is being made to save every temperature reading. I often have to take several with my 6yo and I don’t want to save them all.
Updated to latest version. App won’t start now.
Unreliable at best 1/5
Getting device to sync is a joke. Kept thinking they would get it to work with one of the updates, but still has link issues that make it faster to enter data by hand. Device is junk.
Does not work! 1/5
Like so many apps, this one got worse with every update until it stopped working.
Does not log readings 1/5
says Smart Ear connected but readings don't show up on the app. what did I pay for?!?!
It’s been good so far 3/5
By Heiress ✨🌸
I love how I can keep track of doctor visit and keep notes of what they say for future references.
I just wish it had an appointment reminder and things of that nature
Just does not work 1/5
I’ve tried setting it up on 3 do different smartphones(iPhone 6s latest iOS, iPhone 7 latest iOS, and Samsung galaxy s8) and 1 tablet. Always get the “sound not centered” even though the setting are exactly how the Stick wants it. This was my second one and not pleased.
Works fine 5/5
By Moomoo tan
I don't know why everyone give this app a bad review. If you can't connect the Bluetooth meaning you just don't understand how this device works. The reading is pretty accurate as well. I know it takes time to understand how to connect your iPhone to his kinsa app just play with it for a bit and you will get used to it. Ps: I bought this for 29$
Just not accurate 1/5
Smart ear stopped syncing temperature to device. 1/5
The app was OK at the beginning. Everything worked as advertised, and it was syncing nicely with HealthKit.
As far as accuracy goes, this thermometer is about 2°F warmer than any of my other thermometers, both oral and ear types. Even the Kinsa Stick shows about 2 degrees lower.
I can’t say for sure if it’s inaccurate, maybe all the other thermometers I own have drifted too much. But the fact that it stopped working with the app after 1 day is a deal breaker. The whole point of the smart thermometer is to automatically log your vitals so you don’t have to remember. I’ve had a low-grade fever for 6 months, my doctors want me to track them. Since the ear thermometer appears to be inaccurate and the quality control of both the ear and app seem to be suspect, I can not recommend any Kinsa product.
I’ve tried it on multiple devices and platforms and followed all the instructions on re-syncing the device. The app sees that the device is connected, but it never sensed or logs the readings. After one day, this “smart thermometer” is just an inaccurate $40 ear thermometer.
DO NOT BUY ANY KINSA PRODUCTS.
Save your money, ask your doctor for a recommendation for a cheap and accurate thermometer, and log it the old fashioned way.
Will not open 1/5
I have had the Kinsa stick for over a year and never had a problem until now. It has been a few months since I last used it. I tried using it today and it displays the Kinsa screen for a few seconds and then it closes. I have an IPhone 6 running 10.3.3.
