Kinsa takes accuracy very seriously. Typically in “Normal Mode” our Kinsa Smart Stick thermometer takes FDA-cleared accurate oral readings in 10 seconds or less using a predictive algorithm. Long Reading Mode is an alternate way of taking a reading, by measuring body temperature over a longer period of time.
In this mode, it takes several minutes for the reading to complete, and this may not be practical for infants or fussy toddlers!
Here's how to switch Long Reading Mode on and off for your Smart Stick with your iPhone:
- Update to the latest version of the Kinsa app
- Launch the Kinsa app
- Tap More in the bottom right of the screen
- Tap Smart Stick
- Tap the switch next to Long Reading Mode to turn it on or off
