Clinical research shows the definition of fever changes with age. What is normal body temperature in a 4 year old may be regarded as a fever in a newborn. The new Braun age precision digital thermometer is an age- adjustable thermometer that uses medical guidelines to interpret the severity of temperature based on the age of the patient. Its patented fever insight feature offers a colour coded indication to take guesswork out of temperature taking.

Not goodIn the normal body temperature range, it is accurate. In the fever range however, it is up to 0.5 C less than a glass thermometer. That is too much error to rely on. Also, when used in the mouth, the rubbery outside of the flexible tip has a taste instead of being inert. The age-smart feature quickly becomes a nuisance since you cannot measure the temperature before selecting the age category. The tip cover won't stay on, constantly comes off. Back to store this went.

Inaccurate. Do not buyVery inaccurate. I would take my baby's temperature rectally and it would say 38.4, check again a minute later its 37.9, check again its 37.2! Always a different value. It was giving false fevers. My baby was only 2.5 months old and I got a fever reading so I had to take her to the emergency room according to telehealth because of her age. She seemed completely fine, no symptoms. At the hospital they had to catheterize her to get a urine sample because a newborn can have a UTI and the only symptom is a fever. Sample was negative. We were told that she probably has a cold. I kept monitoring her temp and would get random fevers even though she looked fine. I would check again and it would be gone. Ended up buying a $10 safety first thermometer and I always got a normal temperature and when I would recheck the temperature it didn't fluctuate. I took my 2 month old to the hospital and she was catheterized all because of this useless thermometer!
