Healthcare brand 'Vicks' recently unveiled a new device called the 'SmartTemp,' an app-connected wireless thermometer for babies and children. This is the brand's first connected health product.
The wireless thermometer works by connecting to Bluetooth and features a compatible app that allows parents to track multiple kids' temperatures. It is compatible with both Apple and Android devices. The app will allow parents to create personalized profiles and record data using the connected thermometer.
The Vicks SmartTemp is ideal for parents who want to keep track of their children's illnesses in rel-time, which is crucial during cold and flu seasons. SmartTemp will provide feedback about current symptoms and will allow parents to access a database of similar symptoms, which is created and maintained by pediatricians. The app will also monitor a child's progress, and track signs that will notify the parent when a child is most contagious.
