Our Ultimate Holiday Wish List: Withings Thermo

For the doting parent on your list.

This smart thermometer proves that stocking stuffers don’t have to be useless. The compact gadget uses 16 infrared sensors to take heat measurements and find the hottest point when it’s swept across someone’s forehead. Since using the Thermo doesn’t require contact with the skin, it’s more sanitary than alternative temperature-taking methods, but you’re not sacrificing accuracy. The Thermo makes it easy to interpret results with a color-coded LED indicator, and the companion smartphone app provides advice based on age, fever level, fever history, and symptoms.
