Wondering whether the flu is going around in your neighborhood? With the Kinsa smart thermometer, there’s now a way to track that sort of data in real time.

With no batteries, LCD screen, or processor, the Kinsa oral thermometer plugs into and is powered by the headphone jack of your iPhone. This connection allows the accompanying mobile app to collect accurate temperature data (including real-time fluctuations) and add it to your illness history. From there, you can use the app to share your history with physicians and even access tools to manage your illness.
