The thermometer is integrated with mobile apps and other interfaces. For instance, FEVERSMART thermometers are used for temperature control through continuous monitoring. The users of such thermometers receive notifications from remote locations as well (owing to the integration of cloud computing technologies). Moreover, the smart baby thermometer uses a high-precision temperature sensor. The measurement error in smart baby thermometers is less than 0.1 degree Celsius. Smart baby thermometers are easily operated when compared to traditional thermometers. The aforementioned advantages of smart baby thermometers ensure that they are preferred to traditional, timer-based thermometers that require regular human intervention.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Risks associated with smart baby thermometers. Smart baby thermometers distract parents from adapting to natural cues and cycles. The probability of errors in smart thermometer readings is not negligible. False positive results can result in unproductive stress. Of late, parents are advised by pediatricians to limit the use of thermometers. The use of smart baby thermometers is advised if the baby has been sick for a span of three days or more. Fitbit Force was recently recalled from the market as Fitbit received feedbacks related to skin allergies and rashes in selected customers. Digital pacifier thermometers are not recommended for infants. In this thermometer, tip of the thermometer is inserted into the ear canal. Such risks associated with smart baby thermometers might hinder the growth of the global smart baby thermometers market.
