The meteorological data provided by a single hand held Kestrel weather and wind speed meter used to require expensive equipment that took up a truckload of space. Today, Kestrel wind meters and weather trackers are as small as a mobile phone – and cost about the same. Hardly delicate pieces of equipment, Kestrel Meters are tough, immune to the elements, and even float in water. Hand held wind and weather meters are your portal into the perpetually changing world of weather phenomena. A wind meter like the Kestrel 3000 will tell you all you need to know about the speed of the wind, the temperature, even humidity and heat stress information. More advanced weather meters like the Kestrel 5500 track nearly 20 different weather parameters, and can record the data for later analysis.
