More Information

Gentle, accurate, and easy-to-use, the Vicks V980 Behind Ear Thermometer is a non-invasive alternative to other thermometers.  


  • They've finally gotten to sleep.  The last thing that you want to do is wake them to take their temperature.  The Vicks Behind Ear Thermometer is gentle enough to use on a sleeping child.  In fact, 95% of the babies that it was tested on in a daycare study slept through measurement.  
  • Just a touch - not a swipe.


  • Clinically proven accurate.
  • The measurement site in the hollow behind the ear is very close to the carotid artery, which carries blood to the brain. This is an ideal external site to measure temperature.


  • It's easy as 1-2-3.  Simply place behind the ear, press the start button, and release after the 1 second beep.
  • Has a large easy-to-read LCD display.
  • Features Fever InSight™ - This allows you to understand the meaning of your child's temperature using an easy-to-understand color-coding system.

And More!

  • Designed for the entire family
  • Tracks last 8 measurements
  • Lifetime warranty under normal use.


* Based on a clinical superiority study against the leading forehead thermometer in the US. Data on file.
