WindMate 200 - Measure the Wind

mt2715.jpg

We're always on the look out for a new wind meter to keep track of those windy walks. That's right - on our walks each day when it's windy, it's always a bit interesting to see how fast the wind is blowing. The Windmate 200 has an internal "wind vane" which ensures all readings are on the wind's axis, and the sure-grip, jack knife-style case keeps hands away from affecting sensors. Backlit screen shows digital direction in degrees/compass points; cross/head/tail wind readings; wind chill; temperature. Lanyard and carry case included.

La Crosse Handheld Anemometer - Measure the Wind

413FNP8CS2L._SL500_AA280_.jpg

For sailors, surfers, hang-gliders, or kite-fliers, this nifty gadget is a must-have for keeping tabs on current wind conditions. The tiny handheld anemometer comes in a sporty, yellow, plastic, weather-resistant casing, making it ideal for use during water activities or rainy weather.

About 5 seconds after powering up, the anemometer reports the current wind speed in either miles per hour, kilometers per hour, meters per second, or Knots plus, displays wind speed on a Beaufort Scale bar graph.

We've been using an Anemometer here at Weather Snob for our fishing trips when the wind looks to be too much for several lakes we fish on that are electric motor only. Whatever your wind measuring needs might be, for $39 bucks this wind meter is a steal.
