A few months ago, the batteries in our traditional thermometer died and I was shocked to learn that replacing the battery was the same cost as buying a whole new thermometer! I knew that if I was buying a new one, I wanted something a little more sophisticated.
Every time my kids got sick, I found myself scrambling to try and get an accurate temperature out of a regular thermometer. With little ones, this can be a huge struggle. I did some hunting on Amazon, and came across a huge selection of thermometers. Not only were they comparable to ones found in local pharmacies and big box stores, they were over half the price!
Here are my thoughts on Amazon thermometers.
The exact thermometer that I purchased on Amazon is no longer available, but I believe this one is the newer model.
What I Liked
Amazon has a wide variety of thermometers – traditional, forehead, infrared, etc. The best part is the they’re all extremely affordable in comparison to many big box stores and pharmacies. There are hundreds upon hundreds of reviews that will allow you to make the best decision.
For me personally, the thermometer we purchased works like a charm. I compared it to a traditional to make sure the readings were accurate, and they are! Beyond the price, it functions perfectly and even has replaceable batteries and a warranty.
What I Didn’t Like
Some of the functions on this thermometer are hard to use. It took me forever to figure out how to switch from F to C. I did notice there was a variation between multiple readings, but I know most home thermometers are the same way.
I’m extremely happy that I took a chance and purchased an Amazon thermometer. I purchased ours for $34.99 CAD (plus 2% cash back on ebates – sign up here if you don’t know about ebates!) and to me, it was worth every penny. I haven’t had a single problem with this product. I’m all about money saving options, and this one didn’t let me down.
Amazon thermometers are effective!
Do your research and read reviews! This is an investment! We use thermometers so frequently in times of stress that you won’t want a dud. Compare to local stores and make sure you’re getting the best deal.
We’ve had an amazing experience with the Hylogy brand on Amazon, so I would definitely recommend them!
