What data can I view with this weather station?
This weather station will show you the temperature and humidity reading for the location you position it in. It can also predict the weather outside and will display this by showing a weather based symbol on the display. The on-screen display will also show you the current time and includes an alarm function.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well this does what it says. It does tell the time. It does tell the inside and outside temperature. It does tell the humidity. Plus at the discounted price it??????s cheap. The picture does make it look backlit... It isn??????t, it needs a descent amount of light behind it to see. However since you??????re likely to place the clock near a window to make use of the outdoor temperature sensor (a couple of meters worth of thin cable, which doesn??????t seem to impede closing a window and the sensor seems fine being outdoors), that shouldn??????t be a problem. Accuracy: Time wise it's holding it's time fairly consistently. Temperature seems to be a couple of degrees Celsius too generous. Humidity doesn??????t seem that sensitive. I??????ve not seen it change when I??????ve put a humidifier on. However I don??????t have any other measuring device to compare this with. Overall, although only plastic it looks quite nice. Possibly not that accurate but certainly gives an rough indication of temperatures (or at least the difference between inside and outside). 4 stars if you get this at discounted price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good Very good for the money. No instructions regarding placement of external sensor :( You need an extremely small screwdriver to fit batteries - fortunately I had one but it would be annoying to have to go and buy one. Stylish design.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bargain - but... Let me say first that for the price this is quite impressive, however there are a few points which should be mentioned. - The instructions make no mention of how to insert the batteries; I found out from a previous review on this site (FYI; both go "nose down"). - The battery compartment is held shut by what might be the world's smallest screw, which is very easy to lose. - The "remote sensor" is attached by a 1m cable. I can't think of any application for this unless you have snakes or spiders in a vivarium, but in that case you'd need something better than this to control their environment. - The transparent display is hard to read unless the device is carefully positioned. - I can't speak for the accuracy of the readings, though they seem broadly in line with other devices. Executive summary: great for the price but don't expect too much!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Value for money, poor instructions. Quite lot for your money, but instructions say nothing about the very tricky matter of fitting the batteries. You need a very small watchmakers crosshead screwdriver to remove the holding screw, and an equally small flat blade to prise open the cover. Then fit BOTH batteries nose down (an unusual arrangement) and carefully re-fit the cover. Place the unit against a pale background (no backlight, I think).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great I bought one of these as a stocking filler. Unfortunately the tiny screw would not come out to insert the batteries. Got a replacement, sadly the same thing - can't get the screw out it just turns round and round. Have now prised the back off and got the batteries in. Slightly tempremental now as the back is used to hold the batteries in. Hmmm

I can't seem to change the time on the clock. The instruction leaflet doesn't explain very much at all.

"This is a stand for the unit to be stood upright." This threw me, too - but then realised that the bar acts as a prop should you wish to have the unit 'upright' ( but inclined slightly ) without using the black, weighted stand.
