Great question! Any Kinsa thermometer will help you to get a quick and accurate reading, but some models are a better fit for some than others.
QuickCare is the better option:
For everyone, but especially for families. It's the best option for taking a reading on babies under 6 months old as the QuickCare can be used as a rectal thermometer, (which is the most accurate method of temp-taking for infants).
This goes without saying, but a thermometer used to take rectal temps should always only be used to take rectal temps. Advice from our own Nurse Blake: “If you have a small baby and a child older than 6 months, consider pre-ordering two QuickCares and labeling one for rectal use only and the other for oral use only.” For more tips, see kinsa.help/rectal
QuickScan is the better option:
For those who would like a non-contact reading. The QuickScan takes readings really quickly and is easy to use on others.
Smart Ear is the better option:
For families with small kids. The Smart Ear takes a temperature reading in 8 seconds. It has a bigger, brighter screen and a bigger, easier-to-push on/off button, so it's a good fit for those who may have arthritis, vision problems, arthritis, or struggle with smaller buttons.
