Still works as good as new!
Bought this because I wasn't sure if my dial-like analogue thermometer was still reading the outdoor temperature accurately this winter.
I decided to buy a digital one so it was easier to read at a glance, and after much research and homework on my options here on good ol' faithful Amazon, I settled for this one. It has the best reviews, unlike most others there where the reviews are very mixed. An upside to this is that it also measures the indoor temperature of my house which is a bonus.
Came through the post within days in a slim package, unpacked it and stuck an AA battery into the back and away it went! It takes a couple of minutes for the readings to settle down but after that, it works perfectly. I stuck the outdoor probe just outside of my staircase window and it reads great. Now whenever I go up or down the staircase, I know what the indoor and outdoor temperature is at a glance :)
How do I know that the thermometer is reading accurately? I checked it against both my old analogue thermometer which I wasn't sure if it was working properly, and my cars own reading - they were all showing the same reading, give or take 0.5C either way.
Also another little feature I love about this - at a push of a button, it can display the highest/ lowest tempreture it has recorded that day (both indoor and outdoor)
Would I recommend it? Yes. It has the most positive and accurate reviews about it when it comes to outdoor thermometers. Other digital outdoor thermometers have VERY mixed reviews and sounds as though they only last a few months before something goes wrong with them.
