We have the Badethermometer now for a few months in use and are very satisfied. The design is cute, I think, and the display of the scale the ideal water temperature, as well as cold or too hot are useful because you can see so well with a quick glance at the thermometer, if the temperature already fits without one would have to study the scale more accurately. The reaction time of the display is also sufficiently fast and the thermometer is designed safely. We have also been dropped before and showed no trace of damage. And our little like the thermometer. Sometimes it will even remain swimming in the water and is involved in role-playing games with. :-) So I can recommend without restrictions the octopus.
