The device will display wind speeds in a variety of formats, from Beaufort to knots, and feet/min to m/s. It also displays temperature. Where I am a little annoyed is that the manual does an awful job of explaining exactly what the settings mean. There are both a "current" and "average" wind velocity options, but they appear to do exactly the same thing.
It has the advantage of being relatively low cost and fairly simple to use.
Some of the negatives -
I had some issues with the device registering at lower wind velocities. The manual said it should be able to read to a resolution to .2 miles per hour, but I found that the minimum speed necessary to spin the fan was about 1.1 mph sustained. If you need this to consistently perform at wind speeds less than 2 mph, this is not the device to buy.
The battery compartment is an abject failure. It's hard to get open, finicky to put back on, and seems like it's just waiting to break.
The listing doesn't tell you the limitations on the device...as in what speeds are too fast. Here's that info:
0 - 30m/s,
0 - 90km/h,
0 - 5860ft/min,
0 - 65mph,
0 - 55Knots
This is not by any means a top quality product. It does work, and as long as your needs are recreational or basic, it will do the job.
This was sent to me at no cost for an unbiased review. I have no connection to the seller or manufacturer, and they have no control over what I write.
