Audible completion signal
A tone that lets you know the thermometer has finished measuring the temperature and it's time to read the result.
An alert (a sound, coloured display or both) that warns when the measured temperature is too far above normal.
This makes the thermometer tip more comfortable for your child.
As all the thermometers proved to be accurate, this is based only on ease of use: turning the thermometer on and off, quality of instructions, the display, audible indicator tones and changing the battery.

A Similar model is identical in most aspects except for a few. This means that a majority of its test results are identical so you can reasonably expect to get the same results from the model we tested, but for those aspects which aren't identical, we'll note these as "Not Tested" in the Compare tables.
A Tested model refers to a model that is still current and available in the Australian market. You should be able to order this model through your local retailer, or find it online.
These models can't be found in retailers or online or are no longer manufactured. You may still find these models on second hand websites, or in second hand dealers. Test methods may change over time, so criteria which can't be directly compared will contain an N/A.
An Identical model is exactly that. Performance characteristics will be identical and the only difference will be something trivial such as colour, which won't have an impact on performance.
These are models we haven't yet tested but that are available.
