Most parents would agree – a thermometer is an excellent investment, especially when our kids are little.
Not only can it help you determine if your child has a fever, but many thermometers on the market these days are designed to do so much more!
Braun is the mastermind behind two such thermometers. We recently asked six mums to trial and review two of Braun’s popular thermometers and tell us what they thought!
With incredible accuracy, AgeSmart technology, and easy operating systems, the Braun ThermoScan 7 and the Braun Touchless + Forehead Thermometer received an overall 9 out of 10 from our panel of mums.
BEST OF ALL, 100% of our reviewers would recommend Braun thermometers.
All my mum friends need these. I will be purchasing for any new bub’s baby shower as they are such a great thing to own.” – Kelly
Watch what our mums had to say:
If you are looking at buying a thermometer, both of these Braun thermometers are a great investment. Here are a few things our reviewers especially loved about each one:
[mc_block_title custom_title=”Braun ThermoScan 7 Ear Thermometer”]
The Braun ThermoScan 7 Ear Thermometer is designed to go into the ear. It gives incredibly fast readings, features AgeSmart technology (more on this below) and is one of the most accurate thermometers in the world.
It is quick, easy and the temperature is read within seconds which, when you have an unwell young child, is perfect.” – Tamika
Works seamlessly – easy to put in a newborn’s ear without fuss and accurate readings.” – Kate
The Age Smart technology is fantastic – it’s not something I’ve seen before but it’s really reassuring to know whether the temperature reading is normal or not for my children’s ages.” – Ruth
For someone who is a natural worrywart, it has been a great help and given me peace of mind during those crazy newborn first-time mum early weeks.” – Erika
[mc_block_title custom_title=”Braun Thermoscan 7’s Top Features”]
- Easy to use – Simply press and you’ll receive a reading in one second.
- AgeSmart Technology – This is only available on Braun thermometers and determines whether your child has a fever based on his or her age. Simply select your child’s age and get the most accurate reading possible.
- Colour Coding System – The thermometer also comes with a colour-coded display panel. Green indicates no fever. Yellow suggests moderate fever and red signals high fever.
- Incredibly accurate – We have ExactTemp™(a pre-warmed tip technology), to thank for this! It’s designed to minimise the cooling effect of the tip inside the ear canal, providing accurate measurements time after time. What this means is you never have to worry about inaccurate temperature readings.
- Memory Recall – Can’t remember what baby’s last reading was? Don’t worry – Memory Recall does! You’re able to easily click back through the memory and see if there has been a spike or an improvement in temperature.
I loved everything about it. It’s super easy to use. It’s quick in it’s readings. Oh, and another very important thing… it has NORMAL batteries. So when it’s out of batteries I’ll be able to grab two new ones out of the cupboard… not like other thermometers who have the little button ones!” – Kelly

[mc_block_title custom_title=”Braun Touchless + Forehead Thermometer”]
The Braun Touchless + Forehead Thermometer is brand new to the market and a great investment for fever control and so much more! This handy little gadget features Braun’s unique AgeSmart technology but also allows you to check baby’s temperature without touch (so no waking baby). It also can check bub’s bath, the temperature of purees, baby’s bottle or any other heated food.
A fantastic thermometer to have! It’s easy to use and the kids seem to like it and don’t feel scared. It also does water and food temperature, which is a bonus!” – Chloe
It was amazing to check the baby food and the bathwater! And would be great for testing milk bottles too.” – Kelly
[mc_block_title custom_title=”Braun Touchless + Forehead Thermometer Top Features”]
- Touchless mode – You don’t have to touch baby to get a reading. This thermometer can accurately read temperatures 2.5 cm away! No struggle, no stress and easy readings, whether bub is awake or not.
- AgeSmart Technology and Colour Coding – Like the Braun Thermoscan 7, the Touchless + Forehead Thermometer comes with AgeSmart technology plus the colour coding for easy understanding.
- Multipurpose functions (food and bath mode) – This was by far our reviewer’s favourite feature! You can test the temperature of your child’s bathwater, milk, and purees. Talk about peace of mind any time of the day or night! Plus, how fun!
The Touchless + Forehead thermometer was great! It was really easy to use and you get a temperature reading so quickly.” – Ruth
