Well just convert the readings, also there is no setting options on this thermometer, you cannot change reading from Celsius to Fahrenheit.

Just to give you an idea 100 degrees Fahrenheit is 37.8 degree Celsius.

1. Press and hold the button for a very long time until you see two options C and F, then release the button.
2. Press button to move between C or F.
3. When on F press and hold the button for a very long time to change the default temp reading.

  1. Hi Gogi, thanks for providing all this info. one confirmation required here. when we switched to Fahrenheit scale, i can see in video that it can accommodate 3 digits to display temperature. so let say if temperature is 102.8 Fahrenheit, then will it display temp as 102 / 103 Fahrenheit by truncating decimal value or will it display as is “102.8” only (means it has 4 digit space to display this value) ? Please confirm as the earliest as planning to buy asap.
    Thanks in advance.

  3. I got one of these. It is a good product, but the first problem was the temperature measurement is by default in celsius. But the manual clearly showed the display has Fahrenheit measurement in it. So I figured out the way to change to it. All that you need to do is keep pressing the button (the only one available) for a while and the Celsius/Fahrenheit marks will start to blink. Now press the button again to select one of them and keep the button pressed for a while to set it as default.

    1. Great man. You saved us. Was so worried about this and i thought i had to stick the °F range!!!
      Thanks a lot man. Now i am happy that i have ordered a good one.
      Just received but not yet opened. (cheers)

    1. This one also looks too good, pricey but. Shows temp in F and not as fast as this Xiaomi iHealth.

  5. Gogi,
    Can you please suggest a best infrared thermometer, which is available in India?!

  6. Only drawback is no option for switching between C and F.
    We use F and converting is not comfortable for all.
    We get similar non contact thermometers in the same price range.

  8. Gogi,
    Is there any way Xiaomi can update the s/w, so that we can choose the “°F” from “°C” and vice versa?!!
