I’m curious what my normal temperature range is, what the effect of seasons, food, and exercise is, and whether temperature can be an early warning sign for health issues.
So I’m looking for a device to take daily readings without too much hassle, and that is accurate enough to detect small changes.
A wearable, continuous tracker would be ideal, but apart from one device (Kindara, which isn’t available yet, and wouldn’t work for me anyway), these devices estimate core temperature from skin temperature. The accuracy of this may be good enough to estimate trends (e.g. for fertility tracking), but maybe less so for detecting unexpected, small changes?
Other devices I’ve come across:
- Withings Thermo: Data can be exported, not sure about accuracy.
Kinsa QuickCare or Smart Ear:
No data export (yet).
- Vicks SmartTemp: Data can be exported via email, not sure about the accuracy (suspiciously cheap)…
Any recommendations? Advice for things to consider when taking daily readings?
