Product Description

Kestrel Meter 4500 Weather Meter The Kestrel 4500 Pocket Weather Tracker is Kestrel's flagship meter. Capable of monitoring and reporting an exhaustive list of environmental parameters - from temperature to barometric pressure, dewpoint, wind chill, and more**, the Kestrel 4500 is the most feature-rich pocket weather meter in the entire Kestrel catalog. And now, the Kestrel 4500, as well as the entire Kestrel 4000 series, is available with Bluetooth Technology, allowing you to communicate wirelessly and transmit and log your data automatically. In addition to the Kestrel 4000's extensive list of capabilities, the Kestrel 4500 has these distinct monitoring functions: Digital Compass Wind Direction Crosswind Headwind / Tailwind These added features make the 4500 the Kestrel Meter of choice for military professionals, HAZMAT teams, and flight crews. Like all the pocket weather meters in the Kestrel 4000 series, the Kestrel 4500 is capable of storing and charting up to 1400 data points for later analysis. If you select the Bluetooth model, your meter includes custom communication software designed to quickly and easily configure your data transmission frequency, download logged data, graph data and transfer data to other applications. It is not longer to purchase an interface separately, the new Kestrel Meters with Bluetooth include the software necessary to communicate wirelessly at a range of up to 30-feet. For military professionals, the Olive Drab NV version of the Kestrel 4500 features a night-vision preserving backlight. Backlight incorporates optical filter to reduce overall brightness and minimize blue and green spectrum light to preserve night vision. (Note: This backlight appears soft greyish pink, not "red", and is still in the visible spectrum, so is not compatible with night-vision equipment.) The NV light is designed for optimal performance in low-lig

This is the third kestral I've purchased and is definitely the best of the bunch. I use this, as well as the previous less capable units, for long-range shooting. Being able to 'know' the local atmospheric conditions when shooting well beyond 1000-yards is a necessity for accuracy and this unit makes getting all the info a snap. I love the ability to create user-defined screens that allow me to display only the critical variables I'm interested in: Density Altitude, Temp, Humidity, Barometric Pressure, Wind Speed, etc. All of which can be downloaded into my Android phone via bluetooth to update my ballistic software to get an up-to-the-minute drop chart for my weapon system. If you're interested in using a kestral for long-range shooting, splurge and get this unit, you won't regret it.

Overkill for most people but an awesome device. I will be honest this is my first portable weather station. I looked at many others and the entire range from Kestrel and I chose this one for several reasons. I plan on using it for storm hunting, hiking and skiing condition checks and to keep track of the weather here in New Mexico. I observed 38 mph gusts two days ago with 20-25 constant (The joy of New Mexico in the spring!) I passed on many other named devices simply because they where not water resistant. Sorry I can't see how that makes sense. My weather station at home sits outside.....to check the weather. How else can you check windspeed in the rain yet have to put your device under an umbrella???

Pros
MADE IN THE USA-NOT CHINA LIKE THE REST
It comes with a warranty and trade up option that no other brand offers, read up for yourself:

"The five-year warranty period paired with satisfaction guarantees and lifetime trade-in/trade-up privileges provide Kestrel customers with the best product support available."

Small and lightweight (3.6 oz can you believe it??)
Works right out of the box with only a little setup
Appears to be very accurate
Bluetooth data transfer
User replaceable wind fan
Cover on device protects wind detector when not needed (Can still check other vitals like temp and dew point with cover on) The wind cover is flip up and is not pictured here for some odd reason. It stays fully open or closed with a quick flip.

I just purchased it, I wouldn't have purchased a model without Bluetooth (I hate carrying 20 cables for all my stuff)
Battery autonomy is amazing, the little magnetic protection to carefully place between the batteries to reduce magnetic disturbance on the compass is NOT a burden, it just takes a few more seconds to replace the batteries

The setting of Altitude and/or Atmospheric pressure at a known point is great, greatly improves accuracy

The setting of magnetic compass by slowly turning it is funny but not very practical in the field, luckily you only have to do it when changing the batteries

I have not explored all options but I already love the product, well built, very light but durable

Would love a little GPS receiver that works with it to automatically set magnetic declination based on your location, and a way to aim at an object (house, tree) to read compass with better accuracy, like you do with a good old compass

I strongly recommend this one if you spend some time outdoor in the mountains where the weather can change fast or anywhere you cannot get a forecast easily

My backpack is no more than 10kgs but this Kestrel made my list, better be safe than sorry with the weather

I absolutely love it. I will use it to provide environmental inputs into a ballistics app, Applied Ballistics, through Bluetooth. I expect to be much more accurate with my long distance shot placement because of this device. I can control for more variables before taking that long distance shot. When you are in a situation where you can't get a Mulligan and that trophy animal is 700 yards away with a stiff crosswind high in the mountains on a cold day you will appreciate the value of being able to control for those and other environmental factors.

I chose to get the Kestrel 4500NV Pocket Weather Tracker w/ Wireless Bluetooth Technology rather than the Kestrel Pocket Weather Tracker with Horus ATrag Ballistics and Bluetooth or the Kestrel 4500NV Shooters Weather Meter with Applied Ballistics because I like the richness of features offered in the Applied Ballistics Andriod app and through Bluetooth the inputs are loading automagically, Also, well let's face it. my eyes appreciate the better display of my phone compared to the small Kestrel display.

I recommend the Kestrel 4500NV Pocket Weather Tracker w/ Wireless Bluetooth Technology for shooters, outdoors folks and anyone with a vested interest in detailed localized weather information at the touch of a button.
