how do you take the temperature
Do you stick it under your tongue, put it in your ear or swipe across your forehead?
@marianne, There are three options and one of them is oral.
There's a few unlabeled buttons and the welcome pages are not readable to VoiceOver; you hit the "X" button to get out of them. Not too big a deal
It was a little difficult for me to hold down the button with one hand when connecting to the phone, then swipe around to read the screen. I have a cold, so maybe I'm a little weak. It does work though.
I found a pdf manual on line that I need to read through to find out about the battery and so on.
Is there a way, you can post the link to the PDF. I've been looking for it, but cannot find it. I even tried calling Vicks and also the makers of the thermostat thermometer I mean sorry. But I couldn't find if there is an actual model number for it I greatly appreciate it. Carlos
Before the description of the device there are three tabs. The third tab is the manual. Activate this tab and it will show a link to a US english pdf file named vdt985us.pdf.
I ordered my device through Amazon, not the site at this link.
This looks like a great option. I sure wish it had been available when my son was younger. Anyway, thanks for the great review.
Yeah I might get me one when
Yeah I might get me one when I move out on my own. I hardly if ever get sick but yeah. Also how do you change the tips? I'm a believer in sanitation and I don't want to use that tip once it has been in someone's mouth, or ear or, Well you get the idea.
You can buy disposable covers for the tip on Amazon like hospitals use.
Nice nice. and good to know.
Nice nice. and good to know. I'd have to check for latex free, in my case but yeah, thanks for that. And they will fit the tip nicely?
You can buy disposable covers. Just get generic covers (Amazon sells them and offers them as a purchase when you buy the thermometer, or at least they did when I bought mine). Any generic cover should do though.
