In recent months we have seen some anemometers for smartphones coming onto the market that seemed to have been created just to meet a certain demand, instead of taking care of the essentiality of an anemometer, or measure the wind speed with the best possible accuracy.
The WeatherFlow Wind Meter is designed in the USA by a leading professional weather forecasting company and has been carefully calibrated at the University of Florida in the Aerospace Engineering department.
The measurement is reliable even if it is not oriented directly to the wind and the maximum error is only 0.1 m/s up to 15 degrees off axis.
Its operation starts from the slightest dribble of wind up to the impetuosity of a hurricane.
The WeatherFlow Wind Meter is a 5-blade anemometer designed, very small, protected from impact, wrapped in a generous rubber coating and able to flex under strong pressure so as not to damage the audio socket of the smartphone.
Hard to believe: all this technology costs only 39.00 Euros including VAT.
It is compatible with iPhone, iPad and Android operating system devices. The App is downloaded in a fraction of a minute, the Wind Meter is plugged into the audio jack and is immediately ready to show the wind speed and direction. Registered information can then be conveniently sent by email or on social networks.
In short, the WeatherFlow Wind Meter is really a small, but powerful device, which should never be missing, especially if we practice sailing, pleasure, windsurfing, kitesurfing, paragliding, hang-gliding, golf or just like to learn more about the elements of nature that surround us.
Weather Flow Wind Meter is represented in Italy by Marine Pan Service and the product is already available in our warehouses.
