The W-8681 Wireless Weather Station is made by the Chinese specialist manufacturer of this type of weather product, Fine Offset Electronics Co Ltd, and is a badge engineered version of their WH 1080 model. Their products are sold under various brand names and model numbers; a look at Fine Offset's web site shows the various options and models they manufacture. This model also looks identical to the WH 1081 model - but the 1080 does not have the radio-controlled clock.

This W-8681 is a Watson badged version and, although "Professional" may be a little optimistic, this model will suit the serious amateur weather forecaster nicely. It is pretty good value at between £70 and £80 and not many years ago the features here would have been likely to cost you up to three times as much.

The first thing you will need to do is assemble the outdoor sensor unit which is quite a bulky item - the illustration on the box does not do it's size justice! It comes with a two-section stub mast which can be stuck directly into the ground for low level readings or, ideally, mounted on a pole or mast. Bearing in mind that, although the rain gauge is self-emptying, you will need to access the transmitter unit periodically to replace the 2AA batteries which power it. The spec says the batteries should last up to two years - that may be a little bit optimistic.

A set of Phillips screwdrivers and some small spanners will be required to attach the various sensors and measuring devices to the stub mast. All the fixings are provided including cable ties, screws and nuts and about half an hour should have it up and running. The main niggle in connecting up is the "generous" amount of cable provided on a couple of the sensors - this has to be accommodated on the mast somehow!

Verified Purchase
Being a bit of a amateur weather geek i decided to upgrade my old weather station and opted for the watson.Very easy to set up, wireless connection no problem, comprehensive data stored accessed by pc, all settings can also be changed, ive heard many problems experienced using the software that comes with it, however no problems with windows 7, quad core cpu and 6 gb of ram, however it does stretch the cpu a bit, which may be a problem on an older pc, the screen is covered by a thin membrane which is the touchscreen , i thought the inner screen would be plastic but it isnt, so dont drop it as it will shatter, as i have found out to my cost when i accidently knocked it off the wall with my ladder!. I have ordered a replacement as it is a reliable piece of kit,the generous amount of cable is an understatement, and spray the terminals once you have set up with corrosion inhibitor or wd 40, to keep out the damp.

I have read a few bad reports on this weather Station. My brother bought one and raved about it so I have done the same. at the time of writing all seems well I have the sensors approx 12 feet up in the clear. I am not using the software that came with it I am using Cumulus and it works very well with this instrument. For the price it is and excellent peice of kit. So I think they may have been improved the past few months maybe. A good buy

I have had the weather station one month today. I am very pleased with it. I was not very happy with the clock reading being one hour out. The literature does not explain about zones very well. I did experiment with selecting a zone change and by selecting a -1 the clock did finally read the correct time. I am assuming that when the clocks go back I will have to reselect the zone to zero.
I have other outside temperature and pressure gauges and they record the same as the diplayed readings on the touch screen weather station which gave me confidence to accept the screen readings.
I am really satisfied with being able to down load (export) the graphs to my documents on my laptop.
Initially the instructions for setting up were confusing especially the number of times you had to touch the screen to reach the "item" you wanted to change but it all came together in the end.
In conclusion let me say that if a 78yr.old wrinkly can set up the station then any body can.
