Motorola MBP69SN Smart In-ear Digital Thermometer : A Useful Addition To Our Medicine Cupboard

A friend’s revised this:really easy to use; an extra hand when you have a wriggly baby as it only takes seconds for a temperature reading. Haven’t connected it to my phone yet but i’m sure it will come into use.

As a standalone device, this is great. Insert the batteries, bring into the room for use, and wipe the sensor with an alcohol wipe to clean. Then leave for around 30 minutes. In the meantime, ensure the forehead is clean, if not, cleanse (ensure this is done 10 minutes prior to use). Then hold the device within 5 cm of the forehead, press the button, and it beeps. Your temperature is then recorded on the screen. You can even recall the previous temperature using the lower button. There is an app to go with the device, which i downloaded to my phone. But to use it you have to register, and after five attempts, when it was telling me i had to add a character to my user name, i gave up. I don’t know if this is a glitch today, but it was too much hassle.

A touch-free thermometer is a great idea. But there are issuesonly four people’s temperature can be storedthe app needs to be downloaded and is not very productivenot usb chargable. However there are positives, the green ‘temp is ok’ button is a good idea. The backlight enables temp checking in the darkit’s a bit of a mixed bag, perhaps it needs a little more reworking.

Looking like a weapon / scanner from some distant sci-fi film, this is great. No fiddly battery socket, which needs a fiddly ‘special’ battery like our old one = many many plus points for us. Plus 2, point into the ear, press and wait a few seconds and accurate results follow (again not like our old one which was buggy as hell). The app is cool, but not really necessary as the main item gives you all you need. Its great for parents (and kids too).

The thermometer itself is ok. It’s quite straightforward to use, reasonably intuitive, and it seems to give reasonably consistent readings when pointed at the same place twice. The display is very clear and easy to read. It takes aaa batteries, which does feel a bit old-fashioned- a rechargeable lithium-ion internal battery might have been nice- but generally it’s a decent bit of well-made plastic kit. As other reviewers have said, the app is less impressive. It’s fiddly, it doesn’t connect as easily as other bluetooth devices i’ve tried, and the user interface for the app is somewhat clunky, to put it mildly. The novelty aspect of being able to track temperatures over time isn’t really in line with what we’ll be using this thermometer for anyway- for us this is something that will stay in the cupboard most of the time, only coming out whenever one of the kids complains of feeling ill, so the tracking app is largely irrelevant, thankfully. There are plenty of other touchless thermometers on the market and the device itself doesn’t stand out from the crowd- and the app is closer to being a hindrance than a bonus.

– the app is poor so if that is important to you, walk away now. – the thermometer does not seem to work well on adults, typically recording temperatures a couple of degrees lower, making it useless for adults. – where the thermometer does shine is for young children, for whom it seems to deliver more accurate readings. The non-contact nature of the thermometer is great and makes it so easy to use.

There’s no manual in the box, and it took me quite a while on their website to find it. Also, there are a great many motorola hubble apps to choose from. It took me a while to find the correct one. Amazingly, it’s not the ‘smart thermometer for hubble’ app that you need, although that does work to some extent. It’s actually, the ‘hubble for smart nursery’ app that works best. However, although i did quite like the app and connection via bluetooth was very easy, i can’t imagine me using it very often. The thermometer works fine on its own and is very easy to use. It’s a shame that there is not case for it in the box, as the manual does make a big deal of keeping the thermometer clean and dust free. If it’s so important, why not give us a case?the thermometer doesn’t just measure body temperature. It also has a mode where it can measure the temperature of liquids too.

This has to be the easiest thermometer i have ever used, set up was easy insert the two supplied aaa batteries (so good to use straight out of the box). Once inserted you just point and click on thermometer button and two second later (you get a didi sound) a reading or it tells you its too far away. We found it works best between 2 and 4 cm from the skin and a bare forehead is great. If you really want to get flash you can download an app and bluetooth connect the thermometer to you phone to store results. For me an excellent product and able to use straight from the box, and not intrusive so temperatures can be taken from sleeping children without waking them.

I’ve got so many non contact digital thermometers. This is just another in the drawer. I don’t have a need to use the app so it’s just a gimmick. If they built a device to plug directly into phones to make it a thermometer, that’d be more impressive. Another thing, as far as i can tell, motorola didn’t build this, binatone telecom did so assuming they’ve just licenced the motorola name. Our first cordless phone in the early 90s was a binatoneanyway, don’t be swayed by the fancy packaging and app, this is no better or worse than a standard non-contact digital thermometer.

Some things need a whole new approach and some things don’t. I have never had a single problem with conventional, now ol’ skool, thermometers. They are easy to use and they are cheap. They are accurate and consistent. They are very easy to pack and take minimum room if you want one on a trip. Like i do when i head on safari each year. So why would i pay out an extra £30 or so for a gadget that doesn’t quite seem so consistent or accurate (this is very important), which takes more room that i’d like and really gives you features that most people won’t ever need. Like, why would i ever want to store the temperatures of myself and various other people and compare reading by reading?. Maybe if someone has a temperature you might want to monitor them. Ok, some may go for the whole bluetooth and app thing, but i’d just write the reading down on a piece of paper.

Having read other reviews of the forehead thermometer i approached it with a degree of scepticism. However, i am now totally a convert. Firstly it’s just so easy to take the temperature – there is no contact involved and you just need to hold the thermometers within 5cm of the forehead whilst the button on it is pressed and hey presto you have the result. No physical contact required. Test temperatures ranged from 35. 5 degrees for several different people which is entirely consistent with a generally accepted average normal temperature range. It was a bit chilly when we were testing itpersonally i found the app for my ipad very straight forward. Easy to find, easy to install, easy to operate and it picked up the readings we had recorded straight away. I love the concept of an instant, non contact device for taking temperature.

The app is difficult to locate and even when it is installed on your phone, it is not intuitive or easy to set up. It’s a horrible and annoying fiddle. However, once effectively set up it is then easy to use. Up to four family members can have trends stored in the phone app. This could be four children or a mix of adults and children. Temperatures stored on the phone are presented in an easy to see graphical format so that you can see the trends clearly. Updating with new data from the thermometer is really quick. I didn’t find the temperature readings particularly accurate when compared with another smart (ear) thermometer and a conventional under the tongue version. I can only think this was due to the non-contact idea.

This doesn’t need the expensive clear sensor covers so not only cheaper to run (alcohol wipes are £2 for a box of 100) but you can’t accidentally or deliberately buy fake or compatible ones that may interfere with the reading (being a different material and/or thickness than intended manufacturer ones which are expensive). Charts temperature trends on your phone in an easyish to see manner with exact times (so much better than cycling through the memory – which this can also do anyway) which gives more info to go on than a single reading where you may be hot from exercise or sitting near the radiator etc. Up to four user profiles (family members) can be added. Only has to be ‘on’ with the app open and it automatically updates with the new readings. Takes aaa’s and not those stupid button batteries which don’t last and are expensive. Doesn’t seem accurate for me (see picture) unless i really am just a tad warmer than a cadaver. Perhaps i do run cool, but even if i do this varied by 0. It had trouble reading me for some reason but was more consistent with my wife.
