Braun Thermoscan 7 with Age Precision Review

When I was asked if I would like to review Brauns newest Thermoscan thermometer with Age Precision I jumped at the chance, with all 4 at different ages it can get a bit confusing with knowing the 'right temperature' so this would take away all of that guessing whether it was high or not! 

The last few weeks have been full of poorly monsters from a teething Elsie to a Jenson full of cold to an Evie who was 'under the weather' so we have given the Thermoscan a good old try out! 


Firstly, did you know that the definition of a 'high temperature' changes with age? Especially in young children, did you know that a regular temperature for a 3 year old can mean a very high temp in a young baby? No? That's where the Thermoscan's Age Precision comes in!

Before you take the temperature you quickly select your little one's age group which is as simple as the click of a button. Then the Thermoscan does all the work for you using a colour coded display.

Green indicates a normal temperature.
Yellow indicates a elevated temperature.
Red indicates a high temperature.

After selecting your appropriate age group the thermometer works by simply popping it gently inside the ear pressing the button and waiting for the beep to tell you that the temperature has been taken, but don't worry its super quick, literally just a couple of seconds, and even Jenson (who hates having his temperature taken) didn't mind one bit having his temperature taken. Which is quite a change from the long long LONG wait of our usual under arm thermometer. 

And our usual under arm thermometer usually ends up in a screaming tantrum because of its awkwardness , which obviously no parent wants!

You also get a supply of 40 disposable lens filters in the box too and batteries meaning your ready to go as soon as you have bought it!

Braun also have the backing of Dr. Ranj and on Monday 26th, and Wednesday 28th January between 12:00pm and 1:00pm. Braun will be hosting a Twitter party Q&A sessions with the man himself!

So if you have a question make sure you’re following us at @braun_therms and use the hashtag #askdrranj when you pose your question. AND everyone who tweets Dr Ranj with a query will be entered into a draw to win one of two thermometers.

We absolubtly love this thermometer and although the price is quite high for a thermometer (our old one cost 99p from Home Bargains!) I totally worth the money for a) the speed it delievers the temperature and b) the fact that there are no tantrums, which is a huge bonus if you ask me! 

ThermoScan® 7 ear thermometer with Age Precision® (IRT6520) has an RRP of £49.99 and is available to buy from Boots. At time of posting this review the thermometer was available at discount price of £34.99
