BBT thermometer measures the basal body temperature which is used as an ovulation calculator or fertility calculator. It works as ovulation calendar in fertile days

To measure your Basal Body Temperature (BBT), you’re going to need a BBT thermometer. This is simply a very sensitive thermometer that is able to identify even the tiniest of temperature changes

A woman’s basal body temperature, which is the temperature when her body is completely at rest, rises ever so slightly just after ovulation. Three days of a continued rise in basal body temperatures will confirm that ovulation did indeed take place.

1.It should be accurate to one-hundredth (0.01) of a degree.
