Very good tool. Have used it on my days sailing and at work.
Easy to use and waterproof. The temp. function may not be quick
and you must hold from the sides so not to read the heat from your
finger. But in summary for the price can't beat it.

This is a handy little device I can keep in the pocket of my boardshorts. Since I am not too familiar with approximate windspeeds by "feel" (no previous sailing or other experience), this is/was a good way for me to build memory and put a "number" to the strength of the breeze. This helps to pick the right size kite for the conditions. The wheel/propeller gets stuck after the salt water drys, but is easily remedied by rewetting it. I recommend it to those with no experience with wind, or those having to choose the right kite size, and want a pocket device.

The product arrived before anticipated delivery date and was securely contained in shipping box. My only concern after a few days of use on the golf course is the difficulty of setting wind speed (MPH vs KPH & FPS), temperature (C or F), Chill Factor, and "max wind speed" vs. "temperature display preferences with a "single button" to navigate thru multiple menus displayed on the screen in several locations (plus CF at third spot). After stumbling into "MPH" wind speed setting at top of display and "F" temperature read-out below that in lieu of "max wind speed" (measured), I limit my button presses to a single "power-on" press (it uses an auto-off feature). Note: the manufacturer provides a flow chart of sub-menus on their internet site per guidance from the 1/4-inch thick user guide booklet (used for Xplorer 1, 2, 3 & 4 models). This small (pocket) size wind, temp, and CF gage meets my needs quite adequately and can be used to measure water and solid surface temperatures by direct contact.

I use this to take measurement when I got kiteboarding, sailing, parasailing, and even when I go rock climbing, this thing is accurate quick and I love the temperature piece, lets me have a better idea of what gear I need when I get out of my car. Skywatch is the most important piece for any kiteboarder its efficient.

This is a great "Wind" meter. I purchase this Wind meter, because I just started to kite board and needed to know the winds velocity,
in order to fly my kite. Being a novice at wind speeds, I had no clue what 14 mph wind would feel like on a beach. Now I have something to measure the velocity for future reference. The Meter also shows you the temperature of the air or water. It will take a
few minutes for the Meter temperature to become stable.

I do recommend this product

I bought this to measure temperature, humidity and wind speed so I could plug those variables into my balistics calculator to determine holding corrections for long range shooting. I think the wind speed indicator is relatively accurate, but the temperature reading takes a long time to stabilize. It seems to be affected by body temperature and whether or not the metal backplate is in the sun. There are times when the temperature reading is still changing (increasing) and then the unit shuts off requiring a restart. If an accurate temperature measurement is important to you, pick another monitor.
