I'd like to use one of my Android devices (Razr M, Nexus 7) to log ambient temperatures in a room over several hours. So I'm looking for a USB external thermometer and an app to go with it. Any ideas?

I realise this has been asked before but the questions seem old and the answers dated. Does anyone know of a USB thermometer which is likely to work with Linux easily -- to be plugged into a Pi to keep tabs on ambient temperature?
I see loads of USB thermometers but the only one that comes up on Amazon when I search using Linux in there looks very strange indeed.
I bought simple mini digital lcd thermometer as in the attached photo.
I accidentally,dismantle the thermometer,while the circuit board separate from the display glass.
I reassamble it,but i am not sure if i did it right.
Inside the thermometer there is a 2xlr44 battery that feed a circuit board which conduct current to the lcd display.
