In production for over 10 years, the Skymate has been a popular wind meter with professional and recreational users alike. Often used by wind sport enthusiasts, boaters, environment monitors, shooters, climbers, campers, and agriculture professionals, it's accurate and reliable. A handy, pocketknife-style case makes for easy portability, while also improving accuracy by placing the user's hands further from the wind impeller and temperature sensor. The unit is water-resistant, and its bright yellow case makes for easy retrieval if it ever goes in the drink.

Accuracy is the most crucial component of any weather meter, and the SM-18 is accurate to 3% with wind speeds. It can measure wind from 0.5 to 99 MPH, and captures current, average, and maximum wind speed over five-, ten-, or 13-second intervals, and additionally measures temperature and wind-chill in both Fahrenheit and Celsius.

The unit looks good, seems to work well so far, so I expect that to continue.

Yes I know its not legal during competition, but nice to have to gauge the wind and knowing the speed for making shots.
Curtis Winter
The cover protects the wheel completely, so close it and throw it in your tool box.

This is a good product, convenient and accurate. It is a bit expensive, but typical for similar products. The screen tends to get scratched by the swivel holder cover.

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!!

We have a Skymate Hand-Held Wind Meter on every one of our work trucks. We are required by the law to know the wind speed and air temperature at every job where we make a chemical application. This little Wind Meter does the job nicely. We have re-purchased them when they have been lost or when we have added vehicles.

This is a decent wind meter for the money. I bought it to get rough estimates on air temperatures and velocities coming out of AC registers. It would be absolutely perfect for my usage if it measured humidity too. The case protects it nicely while in my tool bag. Mine did arrive with dead batteries, so that's why I rated it as a 4.

I purchased the hand-held skymate to measure wind speed to improve my sail selection before heading out for a windsurf. It is excellent. Simple to use and now takes that little bit of doubt out of my mind about average wind strength and gust strength. It looks robust enough to handle being thrown in my box of equipment.

A great must have for RC Flying. I Fly Ultra Micro planes to larger gliders. Once you get good with the smaller planes of today, you will enjoy flying them in the wind but you need to know how much wind is blowing to decide if you want to take it up. Very sensitive at very low wind speeds. Nice measurements of different averages with max wind speed. Temperature gauge is helpful in the winter as it may change your flying time due to batteries having less power in the cold. The cover protects the wheel completely, so close it and throw it in your tool box. Want more protection, get the leather case. Set it on a table tri-pod at the park picnic table or on a full length tri-pod at the field.

This tool seems to do the job i purchased it to do. I think its a little pricey and I wish i had shopped around a little more for a better deal but it is pretty useful if your out sailing.

My package came on time. Unit is pretty neat and easy to use. Contacted Steve at the telephone number provided on the package and explained that there were no directions. He told me how to change the unit mesurement from centigrade to ferinhight and said that I could find the directions on the internet at the address provided on the package. Satisfied with that, I went to throw out the package and low and behold, the manual slipped out from between the cardboard insert and I did find the manual on the internet.

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.

Works just fine. The averaging functions are handy for getting readings on unsteady wind. Tripod mount has been useful as well.

The only thing that could be better is the resolution, but it is fine for most purposes - especially for the money.
