Blowing the winds of change - does this do the jiob?
on 11 December 2013
As long as you don't expect rugged commercial quality and scientific precision when measuring wind speeds this little gadget is excellent value at this price. When tried in varying conditions we found that to get a good approximation of actual wind speeds you need to ensure that the device is held square on to face the prevailing wind. Indicated speeds seemed consistent with what the local weather reports said the wind speeds had been so we believe it to be fairly accurate and certainly good enough for our needs.
The build quality is only average when compared to other hand held devices we use but is good enough for the intended purpose.
The display is clear and easy to read although we found changing the various settings a little hit and miss. All in all, if you want a cheap way of measuring wind speeds then this unit seems to do the trick and at a surprisingly low price.
