CES 2022: BCool, the first battery-free, mercury-free, eco-friendly connected thermometer wins an innovation award
January 3, 2022 (#CES2022 Las Vegas, Nevada) – Finally - an eco-friendly connected thermometer that's always ready when you need it – because BCool never needs batteries. Instead, it recharges with only a few shakes through patented BMotion sensor technology, to deliver fast, accurate, non-invasive temperature readings.
Normal body temperatures vary among individuals and with age. When connected via Bluetooth to the app, BCool can keep track of body temperature for an unlimited number of household members, and store readings for a user-determined amount of time to show a progression and eliminate guesswork. BCool also allows users to enter notes such as symptoms, and over-the-counter and prescribed medications with the ability to share this combined information with a medical provider.
From checking low-grade fever due to a common cold or flu, to unexpected emergency use, BCool is non-intrusive and simple to use:
- Give it a few shakes and press the button.
- Hold or slide it slowly across forehead. (Not necessary to make contact with skin)
- Reading appears on thermometer immediately.
- Temperature reading can be sent to the BCool app.
- To add notes for this household member, visit your family dashboard on the app.
- BCool is waterproof for easy cleaning.
