However, a few months ago all of that suddenly shifted. Now, Crucial Tech Co is increasing production to meet a target of 500,000 units within the first half of 2020.
In fact, it is rumored that the demand is so high for the device that you are unable to get your hands on one until next April. Priced at $99.95, the thermometer connects to your mobile phone using both iOS and Android platforms. It allows you to track temperature readings and other symptoms to get suggestive medical advice on your smartphone, without the need for a healthcare professional. Sales are set to continue soaring for the foreseeable future too, given the current medical crisis.
