Skywatch Windoo 3 – the tiny weather station you plug into your phone

As I write this, there’s a raging thunderstorm outside, so I don’t really need the Skywatch Windoo right now, but it definitely could be useful sometime in the future. This cool little weather gadget  gives you an actual personalized weather report based on current ambient conditions, which could save you from all sorts of trouble.

Skywatch isn’t an app. It’s a piece of hardware  – technical term anemometer – that takes weather measurements in real time. This is the perfect solution for outdoor people who travel to areas that are prone to quick and intense weather changes, but where the cell phone signal is low. Think of it as a tiny weather station that you plug into your smartphone. It works with both Android and iPhone products.

It measures wind, temperature, humidity, and pressure so it can, for example, let you know if it’s going to rain any time soon. Or if that snow storm is actually coming so you should set up camp. Or if you’re an urban dweller like me, it will help you plan your outfit and how long you should stay at that BBQ.

It’s small and comes with a band so when not in use can be clipped to bags or just slung around wrists for safe keeping while you continue your adventure. The Skywatch Windoo starts at CHF 59.00 or $66 (the Windoo 3 featured costs CHF 99.00 of $111).

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
