Top Customer Reviews
The big complaint that I have is that it is not waterproof. Their rep. said it will float, and is water-resistant, but is not water proof, cannot go under water. A dubious distinction, since their web page says: ""water resistant to 3' ". Many of their sales sites say "waterproof". but it is not. the repair person made a fuzzy claim that it would float, and withstand rain, but not submersion. i reminded him of the specification on their site, and he basically disclaimed it.
I put it in a breast pocket of a life jacket, and after one spill, it was flooded & ruined.
Anyway, be warned!!
I gave this a four star only because I am confused about the power off feature and how it reads in the manual. I want to make sure it is on so my unit will turn off automatically after 5 min of non-use. Called and left a message with Deon. If he is half as nice as Steve I should have my problem resolved with a simple push or two of the switch. Great customer support.
This is my first unit so I cannot compare it with others but I will mention that I read the reviews and the fact that this is used at track and field events and another person uses a higher priced unit by this company to measure wind speed on top of the mountian if his professional windometer freeze's up was good enough for me. Purchased from Amazon.
UPDATE: After 12-15 tries, I was finally able to change the wind speed units. I am adding another star because of this. There is an even bigger problem now. I contacted WeatherHawk tech support more than 2 weeks ago and have still not received a response. For this reason, the device will not get more than two stars.

This is fun toy. And it is very easy to use. The only reason I gave 4 star not 5 because the variation of the measurement seems large.Published 7 months ago by J from CA
