What we think: These things are just cool! Fun and great for gifts or stocking stuffers. They put quite a bit of testing into them (we helped a little) and they are super accurate.
WeatherFlow Hand held Wind Meter for smart phones – it’s an anemometer that fits in your pocket. It’s the first hardware product created for the general wind- & weather-addicted community. It’s compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod, and all major Android (coming soon) devices. And you are going to love it.
Download one of the FREE apps for iOS or Android and plug in your wind meter – it’s really that easy. Hold it up high facing into the wind. Your phone does the rest by recording the wind speed (average, lull and gust), wind direction and location. Easily share onsite reports with WeatherFlow, Instagram, Vine, Twitter, SMS, Email, Facebook. And view all of this crowdsourced weather in one of Weatherflow’s consumer applications.
The Wind Meter, although not a scientific instrument, is designed to be better than any other handheld anemometer on the market. It’s operating range extends from the smallest puff (2 mph) to well over hurricane force winds (125 mph). Calibrated at the University of Florida’s Aerospace Engineering Department, our Wind Meter is accurate to the larger of +/- 0.5% of the reading or 0.2 mph at up to 15° off-axis. That means even if you don’t hold it directly into the wind, you’ll still get very accurate wind speed information.
Not only do we have one of the most accurate and coolest handheld wind meters on the market, at $34.95 it’s also one the most affordable.
