An electronic thermometer designed and priced to be a viable replacement for mercury filled glass thermometers, which are gradually being phased out of healthcare. This new model features a striking translucent housing with integral case. It is dual-scale (C/F) switchable, water resistant and offers a last reading memory. It does have a beeper and it will lock in the reading once measurement is complete. This makes an ideal item as a true mercury thermometer replacement. Features a storage case, long life battery and auto-off feature.
