This isn’t the lowest price it’s ever been (it was under $20 around this time last year), but it’s real close and is still a good deal on a product that is a pretty good investment during flu season or a global pandemic.
Despite seeming either futuristic or gimmicky, forehead thermometers are actually as reliable than their more traditional counterparts, if not more so. The risk of error leans toward false-positives, so you're more likely to get an unnecessary scare than let an unnoticed fever slip by, which is a helpful feature in the era of "better safe than sorry."
Right now, the iHeath No-touch Forehead Thermometer has received nearly 68,000 ratings, and over 6,500 reviews, and is just $23.99 at Amazon.
