I returned it and have a RiteAid brand now and it seems to be fine, and is in line with my previous temps.
Interesting. That's the thermometer I have, and while I can always see a clear temperature shift, I question its accuracy because it seems to get stuck on certain readings. That is, it will over and over, every month, say I'm 97.2 or 97.18, but never, for example, 97.21 or 97.19...I also always get 97.45 and 97.6 and 97.73--never 97.75 or 97.42, etc....it just reverts to the same readings all the time, and I can't believe that my temperature is THAT consistent. I replaced the battery and it didn't make a difference.
