Pros:
I use to windsurf, and a gadget like this is quite useful to know which sail size do you need and also to have a accurate register of the wind conditions of each day you went to sail. This anemometer is pocket size, which is very good for carrying it with the strap provided. The thermometer is also very useful if you want to know how the wind will behave during the session It has the option to measure wind and temperature in several units (use the one which you are more familiar) It uses just one battery and it is very easy to remove and change. It is very sensitive, the helix spins even with lightest breeze.
Cons:
Because it has a vertical helix you have to point the wind with some caution, because it just measures in one direction. Other more expensive anemometers have a horizontal helix which allows you to measure the wind without worrying about the direction. It is not water resistant.
Other:
for the price it is great
Bottomline:
Buy it if you needed or you think you need it, because if you just buy it to play around it doesn't offer too much fun. But for measuring breezes and wind it's great.
