Husband and wife team Anna Mayer and Daniel Graf, who have previously created the fertility tracking app Ovatemp, is now out with a piece of hardware.
The ONDO is a digital thermometer made to monitor the start of ovulation. The thermometer measures body temperature through the mouth to determine the fertility cycle, and then sends that information via Bluetooth to an accompanying iPhone app and Apple’s HealthKit platform if a user gives her consent.
The Ovatemp app allows women to note their cycle, mood, nutrition and other factors, as well as to rely on community support.Similarly to other fertility tracking apps like Glow, Ovatemp allows women to note their cycle, mood, nutrition and other factors, as well as to rely on community support. However, Ovatemp says it uses methods based on traditional Chinese medicine and the FAM method.
“It was the FAM method that finally allowed us to conceive naturally and we’ve built Ovatemp and ONDO from the ground up based on FAM’s principles to make it easier for women to follow, track and conceive naturally with digital tools,” said Mayer.
The ONDO digital thermometer can also integrate with Glow’s fertility platform for additional information on a woman’s ovulation cycle. The device is readily available on the Ovatemp website, Amazon and Walgreens from where interested ladies (and their spouses) can get it for $149. The Ovatemp app is free to download.
