Your temperature seems too high

Note: The average temperature is between 36.5°C and 37.5°C (97.7°F and 99.5°F). The Nokia Thermo has an accuracy of +/- 0.2°C (0.4°F).


Your temperature seems too low

The Nokia Thermo detects the hottest point of your forehead corresponding to your temporal artery. If the measurement gesture is not performed correctly, the Nokia Thermo won't be able to detect the temporal artery. Therefore, the measured temperature may be too low.

Note: The average temperature is between 36.5°C and 37.5°C (97.7°F and 99.5°F). The Nokia Thermo has an accuracy of +/- 0.2°C (0.4°F).


Your back-to-back temperature measurements seem unstable

The Nokia Thermo takes several thousand measurements in 2 seconds to detect the hottest point of your temple corresponding to your temporal artery. If the measurement gesture is not performed correctly, the Nokia Thermo won't be able to detect the temporal artery. Therefore, the measured temperature may be too low.

The Nokia Thermo has an accuracy of +/- 0.2°C (0.4°F). It may be possible to notice temperature variations when taking back-to-back measurements.

We recommend you to take your temperature measurement on the same side of your forehead, because temperature can vary between the right and the left side.


Note
: The different types of thermometers (temporal, rectal, oral, axillary) use different temperature measurement scales. They can each be used to follow the evolution of a person's temperature through time, but they should not be compared with one another.
