The latest revolutionary mobile weather station
is presented by Estonian developers
gathered around Shaka company
. The devices known as Shaka Wind Meter
and Shaka Weather Station
were born in order to help enthusiasts and professionals in any sport where the wind and weather matter. The device looks like a small key chain
in the shape of propeller, weighing just below 10 g, easily plugged into your smartphone
’s standard 3.5 mm headphone jack.
The rest of the job regarding the measurements is done by the software which is available online as free application
. The device is charged from the smartphone’s battery so you don’t have to worry about another charger and plugs. Shaka Weather Station accurately measures wind speed/air flow
displayed in m/s, km/h, mph, knots, Bft, ft/s or ft/min.
Wind speed accuracy is ±3% when aligned with wind axis. Calibration drift amounts to < 1% after 100 hours of use at 7 m/s (16 mph).
is measured within one minute and is displayed in range between -20 °C and + 60 °C (-4 to +140 °F) with temperature accuracy of ±1 °C/±1.8 °F. Relative humidity (RH)
is measured within 8 s at 1 m/s airflow with accuracy of ±3.0% RH in the operating range between 0 to 100% RH. Air pressure
is displayed in kPa, mmHg, inHg or mbar with accuracy of ±0.4 kPa within the calibrated range of 50 to 110 kPa.
Shaka Weather Station
is fully compatible with iOS and Android devices
and is always connected online so you can share your measurements with others and find the best conditions and position for whatever sport you are in – sailing, windsurfing, paragliding, golf, archery etc. Shaka Wind Meter
functions in the same fashion as the Weather Station, but is limited only to wind speed, wind direction and temperature.
The devices are available online at www.shakaon.net
for very favorable prices. Shipping and warranty are guaranteed. With mobile weather station you do not have to rely on regional weather forecasts because you can read weather
according to your micro location measurements.
I wish you a calm sea, a fine wind and a strong mast!
