CLEVELAND, Nov. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- TempTraq®, the first-ever wearable intelligent Bluetooth® thermometer to continuously, and comfortably, monitor body temperature for 24 hours, has been named a "CES 2016 Innovation Awards Honoree" in two categories: Fitness, Sports and Biotech; and Wearable Technologies.
Powered by Blue Spark Technologies' patented, printed flexible battery, TempTraq is truly a new frontier in digital thermometers. It works in conjunction with the free TempTraq app to bring users to a new level of health care for children of all ages – and even adults.
With this connected wearable, caretakers can receive temperature data every 10 seconds for 24 hours through their iOS or Android device and can even be alerted when temperatures hit the user-set "red zone" level. For those looking to share this information with health care professionals, users can easily send temperature data via email.
"We are thrilled to be honored in two highly sought award categories," said John Gannon, CEO of Blue Spark Technologies, maker of TempTraq. "TempTraq fits perfectly into both categories as we're providing a high-tech, wearable device that monitors a person's health through one of our most basic vital signs, temperature."
A three-member judging team, which included an independent industrial designer, independent engineer and a member of the trade press, rated products based on engineering qualities, aesthetic and design qualities, the product's intended use, function and user value, novel product features and benefits, as well as innovation of the product in the marketplace.
