The WeatherFlow Wind Meter is an anemometer that fits in your pocket and works with your smartphone or tablet.
Simple and accurate. Although it may not be considered a scientific instrument, the new Wind Meter by WeatherFlow promises to the best handheld anemometer for smartphones in the market.
Its operating range extends from the smallest puff (2 mph) to well over hurricane force winds (125 mph), and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod, and all major Android devices.
The Wind Meter was calibrated at the University of Florida's Aerospace Engineering Department. It is accurate to the larger of +/- 0.5% of the reading or 0.2 mph at up to 15° off-axis.
It means that even if you don't hold it directly into the wind, you'll still get very accurate wind speed information.
The WeatherFlow Wind Meter is easy to use - just hold it up high facing into the wind. Your phone will do the rest by instantly recording the wind speed (average and gust), wind direction and your location.
The portable anemometer reads in meters/second, miles/hour, knots, kilometers/hour and beaufort scale.
