The algorithm that has been employed takes care of all external factors like heat loss and ambient temperature.

The temperatures captured are automatically synchronized with the iPhone app by wifi or bluetooth. The database of the temperatures can help consultation with physicians.
The Thermo works in two AAA batteries which can last for around two years.
