To give you an idea, smart thermometers over 8 million temperature readings generated by almost 450,000 unique devices between last August and December. User can provide other information as well.

When that data is sent to the app's manufacturer, researchers say it can accurately track the spread of the flu several weeks ahead of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.
