When it comes to health related technology, I’ve found nothing is cooler than the digital ear thermometer by Swaive. If you have ever had to take a child’s temperature with an old school, under the arm thermometer, you will simply love the ease of this digital ear thermometer.
The biggest issue I have with digital thermometers is whether or not they are accurate. In my testing, this is definitely not an issue with the Swaive Thermometer. Not only is the Swaive solution convenient, but it’s also very acurrate. I checked my temperature with a regular thermometer and then with the Swaive and they were pretty close to being exactly the same.
Right out of the box you can see the people at Swaive put quite a bit of thought into the design of its product. The thermometer has a nice, simple design, making it very comfortable to hold.
In addition to the unit itself, it comes with a sleeve full of plastic hygienic covers and a small, hard plastic carrying case. When you press the smooth button to turn it on, a nice blue LED display appears on the handle. This display will show the temperature reading, as well as, a three second countdown before it takes your temperature.
Along with the everything above, there is also a companion app for your smartphone to keep track of not only your own temperature history, but everyone in your family. Indeed, you can breaking everyone’s temperature history down into smart graphs. Moreover, it provides a place to record what type of symptoms you are experiencing at the time the temperature was taken.
Setup and Usage
The setup for the Swaive thermometer itself was pretty painless: I simply put in the two AA batteries in and turned it on for the first test. There is a three-second countdown and a beep, then a second beep and then the temperature is taken.
The first couple readings were off because it took me a few tries to get the countdown. Also, I didn’t get it in my ear fast enough; but, once you get the hang of it, the readings were accurate.
Setting up the companion app is easy as well in that you just download the app and input the member of the family you wish to record. From there, take the temperature and it records it directly to the application. Over a period of time you can get a nice chart of the fluctuations in each person’s temperature for reference or even to show your physician.
The Swaive Thermometer is an excellent product for anybody looking to get an accurate temperature reading. The design and ease of use of this product is simply amazing, especially if you have young kids who can’t sit still when you have a thermometer under their arm.
The companion application is an ingenious way to keep track of those readings. And, because it’s recorded on your phone, you can show your doctor with a simple click of your smartphone. I would highly recommend this product for anybody looking for a great thermometer.

In checking, we found that Amazon has them for a few dollars less. The companion application costs nothing to download and use, and is a great addition to an already excellent product.
