- Thermometers with Amazon Prime shipping were difficult to find for a while due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, but the best one we’ve ever tested is finally back in stock: iHealth’s No-Touch Infrared Forehead Thermometer.
- This sleek model is often referred to as the “iPhone of forehead thermometers” because it features a terrific minimal design like something Apple might make.

Everyone knows about the low-tech tools you need to fight the novel coronavirus pandemic. First and most importantly, you need to wear a face mask at all times when you’re not inside your home. Amazon’s best-selling face masks are on sale right now for just 60¢ each, and you can get wildly popular MagiCare KN95 face masks on sale right now for just $1.53 each, which is the lowest price of the year. Second, you need strong hand sanitizer. Bottles of Purell hand sanitizer are actually in stock right now at Amazon, but you can get a much better deal on best-selling Medex Labs hand sanitizer with the same formulation as Purell. It’s sold in big stores like CVS, Whole Foods, Costco, and 7-Eleven, so it’s a brand you can trust.
There are also a few high-tech tools that you should have on hand in the age of the coronavirus. The first is a pulse oximeter, which is a fantastic device to have on hand if you’re exhibiting some symptoms but you’re not certain if you have the flu or COVID-19. This little device measures the oxygen saturation level in your blood which should be somewhere between 95% and 100% when you’re healthy. Some coronavirus patients have been found with readings as low as 50%, and anything under 90% is considered by the Mayo Clinic to be unhealthy.
The second high-tech tool you should have is just as important as a pulse oximeter: you definitely need a good thermometer that’s accurate and can deliver fast temperature readings. The iHealth No-Touch Infrared Forehead Thermometer is the best-selling model on Amazon and it’s finally back in stock. Many people call this model the “iPhone of forehead thermometers” because it’s so sleek and minimalist, it seems like something Apple might design.
More good news: there’s a discount and a coupon available for this awesome thermometer if you hurry. Regularly checking for a fever is considered by many to be even more important than reading blood oxygen levels, so definitely grab an iHealth thermometer before they sell out again. They also happen to be on sale right now at the lowest price since February!iHealth No-Touch Forehead Thermometer, Digital Infrared Thermometer for Adults and Kids, Touchl… Price:$46.99 Available from Amazon, BGR may receive a commission
