Xplorer series handheld wind meters are a must for determining wind speed. Take the guess work out of which kite size to rig, get a handheld wind meter and now the high, low, and average wind speed before you choose which kite to rig.
The Xplorer breaks the price barrier on handheld wind meters and is simple to use. The Xplorer does not include complicated and seldom-used features such as downloading and storing. Press one button, and instant readings are at your fingertips.
Designed in Switzerland, the SKYWATCH Xplorer series is engineered to provide a lifetime of accurate and dependable use.
Sensitive Impeller(click on the picture to enlarge): The impeller on the Xplorer series is precisely balanced to provide instant and accurate readings of windspeed from the lightest breeze to hurricane-force winds.
The impeller is magnetized, creating a magnetic field during rotation that is registered by the integrated sealed electronics to calculate windspeed.
Bold LCD: The LCD is designed to be read easily from any angle with its large and bold font. Windspeed is displayed in the top segment in most modes, with a second measurement in the lower section. Icons show the mode and what measurement unit is used. The EL backlight, activated by a press of the button, is ideal for use in dim light. All Xplorer models share the same LCD design for continuity.
