Braun ThermoScan 7 Ear Thermometer – Review

Autumn seems to have fast arrived, and with it a whole load of sickness, viral fevers and common colds made worse with the start of School…  So when I was asked to review the Braun ThermoScan 7 Ear Thermometer, I thought it would come in useful a lot during these cold Autumn and Winter months.

O has been feeling a bit under the weather lately.  Although it’s sad to see them not feeling themselves, it’s about the only time I ever get any daytime cuddles!  Last weekend, he hadn’t been sleeping well and had woken in a clammy state and so it was a good opportunity to get the Braun ThermoScan 7 Ear Thermometer out and put it to the test.

The Braun ThermoScan 7 Ear Thermometer comes with a storage case, packet of spare lens filters, quick start guide, full instruction booklet and batteries already inserted.  The stand-out features for me include the Night Light and the Age Precision technology; but it really is brimming with other excellent features.

The Braun ThermoScan 7 Ear Thermometer is suitable for any age.  I didn’t realise that the temperature of a fever is different depending on the age of the child, and the Braun ThermoScan 7 Ear Thermometer allows you to select the age of the child prior to taking a temperature reading.  Of course, O is 4 years old so fits into the highest age range available using the Thermometer.  I can only imagine how useful this will become when baby bump arrives in March and I’ll have two very different age ranges to consider.

For the purposes of this review, I have taken pictures demonstrating how the thermometer would be used – when O was actually feeling a bit poorly, I thought I’d be a bit of a mean Mummy to make him wait whilst I took photographs!  The Thermometer is really easy to switch on, select the correct age range and take the temperature.  O didn’t mind so much when I used the Braun ThermoScan 7 Ear Thermometer – it didn’t take long to register a reading either, which is good.  With a smaller child, it may be difficult for them to stay still!


As the Mummy of a 4-year-old, I’m really quite impressed with the product on a whole.  I can imagine it would be a bit more difficult to use a thermometer like this with a newborn, rather than an ‘under-the-arm’ thermometer, but the reading here would be a bit more accurate.  I suppose I won’t know until baby is born!

The Braun ThermoScan 7 Ear Thermometer is available at Boots for a cost of £49.99 at the time of writing this review.

Disclosure:  I was sent this product for the purpose of this review, however all words and opinions are my own.

  1. I have three children and don’t even own a thermometer , how bad is that. This looks perfect for if you have children though as my toddler is forever catching bugs now she is at pre school. I really must look into getting a one xx
