Temperature is a crucial diagnostic tool in the assessment of metabolic needs of the body. In this paper peripheral temperature monitoring using a strap-on device is done, the above obtained data including field settings is then assessed in the laboratory. The device consists of an SHT15 temperature module controlled using a low-power micro-controller connected to an OLED/LCD display. Most devices are constricted by the memory data requiring another system to interpret the data or to be connected with the sensor rendering it non-portable. To achieve mobility in these sensors progress has been made through the introduction of Bluetooth and RFID but by limiting the power it has made impact on the accuracy. This has been overcome in this paper with the use of micro SD card which also time stamps the data for further analysis and through the OLED display immediate run time data can be provided. Thus the requirement of an all time present system and immediate interpretation of the data is overcome without a sacrifice in the accuracy .The indigenous device in this paper is calibrated to sample temperatures at a rate of 1 sample per 8 seconds with a resolution of 0.1±C.
