The ambient weather wm-5 weather station with heat index is the perfect device for hikers, motor and shooting sports racers, outdoor racers, and companies undergoing construction and industrial projects.
This weather station will help you keep track of the atmospheric pressure, temperature, humidity, dew point, heat index, wind speed, and attitude.
In fact, it can calculate the average and maximum barometric pressures from anywhere across the globe.
This jack-knife weather tracker is not a compass, but it is as vital as one. Let us check out a few of its features.
The ambient weather wm-5 weather station’s grey and black coloured camouflage is built from a well finished plastic and rubber material.
It has a digital screen which highlights important metrics from pressure and temperature changes to wind and heat changes.
This mobile weather unit sports a barometer and humidity sensor which is easy to calibrate and doubles as a point of attachment for a tripod.
Unsurprisingly, it is built to withstand the constant outdoor assaults and harsh weather elements with its rugged frame and water resistant capabilities. It comes in a sleek pocket knife design.
Holds a replaceable 4000mAh battery which means the battery can last up to 400 hours of usage.
Water resistance and altitude measure
It is equally water resistance up to 4-inches deep and can withstand high altitudes between -650 to 9000 feet above sea level.
Due to its lightweight case, it measures only 3.9 – 4.0 0z.
It is threaded for tripod use for days or operations that require it to be mounted. Fortunately, it also comes with a lanyard for suspension from the neck.
Below are a few other important features:
- Storm alarm
Also equipped for Storm Audio Alarms for storm indication.
- Dew Point
Measures from -31.2° to +155.8°F.
- Heat Index
Measures +69.8 to +155.8°F; rH 0-99%.
- Wind speed
Like many other weather meters, it has a wind speed accuracy of 4-89 MPH, and it measures a maximum wind of 2sec gust.
There are several units for measuring wind speed and temperature: Knots, MPH, KPH, M/Sec, Ft/Min and the Beaufort scale for wind while Fahrenheit and Celsius are the available units for temperature.
It is best used as a hand-held device or it could be tied to a pole when altitude is to be taken into consideration.
- The barometer is easy to calibrate
- Has up to two-year warranty on some of its components
- The plastic impeller of the device doesn’t corrode unlike other similar devices.
- The device comes with a lanyard so the device can be suspended from the user’s neck
- Cannot calculate wind speeds above 2-second gusts
- It is more expensive when compared with other products
- It cannot calculate altitudes above 9000 meters
- Not available in a variety of colours
The ambient weather wm-5 weather station with heat index is an all-round gadget for hikers, hobbyist or professionals whose day to day activities greatly depend on the weather.
Overall it is a wonderful product for everyday use.
