Congratulations to Kinsa Health, a New York City-based digital health startup. They recently announced that the Kinsa Smart Thermometer is now available at Apple and CVS stores across the US as well as online at the Amazon, Apple, and Kinsa websites.
Kinsa’s thermometer connects to a smartphone via the headphone jack. The device sends data to a companion app, which records the user’s temperature, time of temperature reading, and other information about how the user is feeling. For children, the app also uses the smartphone’s display screen to offer animated visuals throughout a temperature reading in order to calm, distract, and engage kids. It is retailing for $29.99.
