TempTraq® is a wearable, Bluetooth continuous temperature monitor in the form of a soft, comfortable, single use patch. The patch senses, records and transmits body temperature for 24 or 48 hours via Bluetooth® 4.0 (LE) to an iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch® with Bluetooth 4.0 capability running the TempTraq app. With TempTraq Connect, users may share local patch data in real time with other users running the TempTraq Connect app with an internet connection.
The app requires the TempTraq patch to function. TempTraq is a Class II FDA cleared medical device and is only available for sale in the US. The TempTraq app is only available for download in the US.
TempTraq allows a child to rest when they are ill with an elevated temperature. There is no need to disturb the child to take a temperature measurement so the child can rest and the parents can be confident knowing their child's temperature.
The TempTraq patch is designed to be worn with the sensor in the armpit area measuring axillary temperature. TempTraq measures under-the-arm "axillary" temperature and this is converted to an oral temperature which is displayed in the TempTraq app.
The TempTraq app provides an intuitive and easy to use interface to view the temperature data transmitted from the patch.
o Displays both current and historical temperature data transmitted from the patch
o Monitors multiple patches assigned to multiple children
o Enables sharing of patch data with other TempTraq Connect users
o Uses color to indicate temperature levels
o Green – less than 100.4° F
o Orange – equal to or greater than 100.4° F
o Red – temperature equal to or greater than a user defined alert temperature
o Displays temperature in either C or F
o Generates an alert on the smart device when the temperature is equal to or greater than a user defined alert temperature
o Provides temperature history over the 24 or 48 hour use period of the patch in both graphical and data table views
o Enables the user to enter notes for medication, baths, feeding and other events
o Enables temperature data to be exported via e-mail as a .csv file
The TempTraq app is compatible with iPod touch, iPhone and iPad with Bluetooth 4.0 (LE) capability, running iOS 12.0 or later.
Fixed an issue with adding a new patch.
Ratings and Reviews
The app itself seemed to not have any issues but the temperature is not accurate. I checked my baby’s temperature with a thermometer to compare and it seemed the TempTraq always displayed about 2 degrees lower than an actually thermometer. I thought- okay, I’ll just modify the temperature to go off lower than a fever to make up the difference. Nope. You cannot have it notify you of a temperature less than 100.4. Even being inaccurate, I would have been happy using it and just adjusting the temperature to set the alarm off but you can’t even change that so it wasn’t much help since 2 degrees is pretty significant for a baby.

It works, it’s Bluetooth people
I read a lot a reviews on this as we were putting this on my daughter. I thought, oh great a useless product why did we bother getting it. But it worked and did what it was supposed to do. People keep saying that their app says no reading etc. Guess what mind did too in the middle of the night. It’s Bluetooth based. Bluetooth has a certain distance where it is effective. It’s not internet based where it would work anywhere. It’s like leaving your car while it’s still running in a parking lot and going into a store. Would you expect your phone calls to come into your car speakers there?
I woke up in the middle of the night. Took my phone with me to my daughter’s bedroom door with the app opened and waiting for a Bluetooth connection. And guess what?!??? It worked. So before you buy something or review something, know what you’re getting and its limitations. The product works. If I were to change anything I would say make the patches cheaper and make everyone buy a one time hub that connects to the WiFi for monitoring. That way people can monitor anywhere in the house.
This does not work!
I watched the video and read the entire manual before applying the patch. It displayed information on my phone for only 30mins-1 hour and then stopped working. It only states “No recent data” inside the circle where the temperature is suppose to be displayed. I can understand if her temperature has not changed but it stopped showing readings at 10:34pm when I started it at 10:00pm. It is now 2:30am and I still am up to make sure my baby doesn’t wake with a fever again like she did last night. I bought this patch so I don’t have to wake her up when my poor baby already feels miserable to take her temperature. This is a HUGE waste of money but a great idea if it actually worked! I felt some sense of relieve when it first displayed a temperature only to be completely disappointed. I read the reviews but I thought I would give it a chance any way but from a mom to mom, try something else cause this will only upset you. I will be shopping for a similar product but from another maker with high reviews.
