The degree° is a wearable made for children that continuously takes their temperature created by Johannes Kreuzer, founder of wearables technology company cosinuss°.
The data taken from the sensors on the thermometer get sent to the caregiver’s smartphone through an accompanying app. If a child’s body temperature is too high or too low, the app will alert the caregiver on their smartphone. The app can also track temperature changes so the user can see if the treatment is effective.
degree° is field-tested to fit children’s anatomy and skin. It has more than 5 days of battery life on one charge and features a high-end skin contact thermosensor inside the ear canal.
