The best thermometers in India are easy to use and should provide accurate temperature readings of a person when they are feeling sick. We know that fever is one of the primary symptoms of COVID-19 and there is a huge demand for thermometers today. There are different types of thermometers available and depending on your use case, you may choose the one which fits your need better. Earlier, the most commonly used thermometers were mercury-based ones, also known as 'liquid in glass' thermometers, and it was succeeded by digital thermometers. While the readings from a mercury thermometer are the most accurate, there is a certain risk involved as these are made of glass and can break easily. Mercury, being a toxic metal, is hazardous in such cases and therefore you will not find the glass thermometers being used as commonly today. Here are the best thermometers you can buy in India.
