What can it do? The better question might be, what can't the WindMate WM-300 by WeatherHawk do?
In addition to wind speed and digital wind direction, the relative humidity sensor, wind chill, wet bulb, dew point, and Delta T make this a comprehensive instrument for any sailor or outdoor enthusiast. This unit features a USA-made fluxgate compass for precise digital wind direction measurement, and it can also be used to calculate crosswind, head/tail wind readings. Unlike a traditional compass, the WindMate reads when held vertically and can be used to take a bearing on a distant landmark or reference location. The WM-300 includes the Accuweather.com patented Comfort Indexﾙ, which is the effect of temperature, wind speed, relative humidity and sun intensity on the human body for a superior human based reference to Heat Index. All wind functions are displayed in user selected units, digital wind direction is displayed in degrees & compass points -- all units are measured/displayed down to tenths. An EL backlight is built in for low light operation. Also features a rugged, water-resistant case with an adjustable lanyard. All WindMates are designed with a wind speed accuracy of better than +/- 3% and have a 2-Year warranty.
