I live on a farm and find this a real help to determine conditions when out in the fields . For example trying to find the best time to harvest crops. This combined with the portable lightning detector gives us a heads up on severe weather approaching to give our family time to get off the fields. I also drive charter bus and recently used both to get a group of young people off a golf course before a severe Thunder storm arrived,
Being a highpower competitive rifle shooter, this portable anemometer is a necessary tool. Acurite has hit a bullseye. It's functional, accurate, and inexpensive; and is compact enough to transport from range to range.
I liked the Portable Anemometer EXCEPT for the Altimeter. What they need in the unit is a built-in barometer.That takes the guess work out of setting it to the right Altitude. I bought it for the reason to check Altitudes.
Nice product for portable use,ie: camping and/or walking around my neighborhood. :) Also, quick delivery of product. :)
Bought this Anemometer for camping. It's very light and with comparing it with my home weather station it's right on with both temperature and wind speed. I purchased a small tripod to mount it on so that there's no need to hand hold. To sum it up! I would say it's a neat little weather station.
While the features for temp and related measurements are good along with the altimeter, the principal purpose as a portable anemometer is rather hokey. If you try to measure the wind speed it does not have a directional vane as most anemometers. You have to be the vane and try to aim it to catch the wind. You have to be pretty much dead on. If the wind shifts slightly, as it will, the reading stops. Sorry that I convinced a couple of friends to buy this unit before I got mine. Oh well.
I received this as a gift and was very pleasantly surprised with it's functions and features. I purchased a smaller unit years ago and use it at work (where I'm out in the elements frequently) and for severe storm spotting. This is far superior to my older unit, it has a much larger display and I find it easier to turn on and use it.
I carry this device in my camera bag so I always have access to it in case I want to measure the wind and make notes to myself or to report it.
