Portable WindMate wind meters have been reviewed by experts in the field and have won various industry awards. Each unit is only 5.5 inches long when closed, and weighs just over 3 ounces - perfect for taking to the field, or adding to that already-stuffed range bag. The unique, jackknife-style case allows more precise wind speed readings than other meters, because your hand is distant from the wind impeller, allowing undisturbed air flow measurement. It then folds to protect the unit when not in use. WindMate meters come with a wind vane to ensure accurate measurement on the wind axis. All units can be tripod mounted and will accommodate the Model SM-WT wind tunnel accessory for more precise readings as a stationary sensor or for long-range shooting. The 200, 300, and 350 models feature a digital, USA-made fluxgate compass which allows wind direction, cross/head/tail wind calculations, and more, all on an easy-to-read LCD display. All WM-series meters use the readily available, CR-2032 lithium battery, included with each meter, which provides approximately 400-hours of operation. WindMate wind meters meet NISTcalibration standards, are wind speed accuracy tested to better than +/- 3 percent, and have a 2-year warranty.
This prize-winning, comprehensive weather monitor gives full environmental data specific to your location, and includes a 48-hr history for every function, hour-by-hour, and in a bar graph. The USA-made, fluxgate compass reads when held vertically, giving wind direction in degrees and compass points; it also calculates crosswind and head/tail wind, and can be calibrated for variation/declination and deviation. In addition to wind speed/direction, temperature, barometric pressure, altitude, and humidity, the unit provides wind chill, wet bulb, dew point, Delta T and density altitude readings. The WM-350 gives an accurate weather forecast, and an audio storm alarm alerts you to weather changes, even if the unit is off. This instrument incorporates the exclusive, Accuweather.com's patented Comfort Index, which is the effect of temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and sun intensity on the human body. The formula can be adjusted based on sun intensity and is superior to Heat Index.
