WeatherFlow Wind Meter
The WeatherFlow Wind Meter is an innovative new take on traditional wind meters or anemometers using your mobile device, iPhone, iPad, or Android device.
Download the free apps for iOS or Android and plug in your wind meter – it’s really that easy. Hold it up high facing into the wind. Your phone does the rest by recording the wind speed (average and gust), wind direction and location.
Easily share onsite reports with WeatherFlow, Instagram, Vine, Twitter, SMS, Email, Facebook. And view all of this crowdsourced weather in one of our consumer applications.
The Wind Meter, although not a scientific instrument, is designed to be better than any other handheld anemometer on the market. It’s operating range extends from the smallest puff (2 mph) to well over hurricane force winds (125 mph).
Calibrated at the University of Florida’s Aerospace Engineering Department, the Wind Meter is accurate to the larger of +/- 0.5% of the reading or 0.2 mph at up to 15° off-axis. That means even if you don’t hold it directly into the wind, you’ll still get very accurate wind speed information.
Not only is it one of the most accurate and coolest handheld wind meters on the market, at $34.95 it’s also one the most affordable.
