Kinsa Health announced the availability of the Kinsa Smart Thermometer, the first FDA-cleared smartphone-connected thermometer and health tracking app.

The thermometer connects to a smartphone via the device’s headphone jack and works with the free Kinsa app to display a precise temperature reading in less than 10 seconds. With the app, individual profiles can be created to track fever, symptom, and illness history. Alerts are displayed on the smartphone if the thermometer slips out of place; the thermometer can be used orally, under the arm, or rectally.
