From Smart Baby Thermometers to In-Ear Fertility Trackers

Whether it is tracking an infant's fever or a woman's ovulation cycle, these tech-heavy thermometers make it easier than ever to monitor changes in body temperature.

When it comes to infant-specific thermometers, many companies have developed designs that make the process as quick and comfortable as possible for young children. For example, Just-Brill's DigiThermo device is a non-invasive thermometer that gathers readings from a child's ear. Similarly, TempTraq is a non-invasive patch that can be worn by infants to remotely monitor body temperature for long periods of time.

However, some of the biggest innovations when it comes to tech-heavy thermometers have been those designed for women looking for a better way to track their fertility. Unlike the basal thermometers of the past, the newest generation of fertility-tracking gadgets make it quick and easy for women to find out exactly when they are ovulating. These high-tech devices include wearable fertility thermometers that can be worn overnight, in-ear thermometers that take temperature readings via the ear and app-connected thermometers that provide women with a visual breakdown of their data.
