Review: TempTraq Wearable Bluetooth Thermometer

TempTraq, a Blue Spark Technologies company, has released the TempTraq Wearable Bluetooth Thermometer ($25), also known simply as TempTraq. A sticky patch designed to constantly monitor a child's temperature, TempTraq is worn directly on the skin, with the tip of the patch placed under a child's armpit. It uses Bluetooth to send live readings to a free app when a linked iOS device is within 40 feet.

The patch is designed for one-time use, which makes the $25 price tag hard to swallow.{/exp:char_limit}
