"You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows"—just the Vaavud™2 wind meter!
A recent winner of the prestigious RedDot design award, The Vaavud™2 wind meter turns your compatible smartphone into a high-tech meteorological tool, measuring wind speeds up to 78 knots, as well as wind direction, with near-professional precision. In fact it is the first hand-held wind meter in the world to measure wind direction, which is why VaavudTM calls it "the world’s smartest wind meter". Its unique design with the two asymmetrical blades and the waterproofed electronics provide durability and reliability to meet the demands of an active life. Usage requires the free Vaavud™ app with easy-to-read, user-friendly interface.
With its unique and compact blade design, inspired by vertical wind turbines, the Vaavud™2 wind meter is accurate, practical and truly pocket friendly. It has a one piece durable plastic rotor, a stainless steel axle, and low friction PTFE bearing. Reliability and long service life are assured through the use of quality components, and coating of the internal electronics.
The Vaavud™ App displays wind speed in commonly used units of measurement. It has a neat and clean interface that shows the most important wind characteristics: actual, mean and max wind speeds, as well as wind direction. The smoothed graph provides additional data on variations in strength as well as a quick overview. Once your measurement is completed the app presents you with a neat summary, which includes barometric pressure, temperature, wind chill and "gustiness" (turbulence intensity). The app also boasts a global live map, and your personal measurement history. The Vaavud™ App is available free from the Apple App Store and Google Play.
The Vaavud™2 wind meter has a wind range from 4 knots up to 78 knots (2 m/s up to 40 m/s). Accuracy is the lower of +/- 4% and 0.4 knots (0.2 m/s) and wind direction is measured with a precision of +/- 4%. Testing and calibration is confirmed in the professional wind tunnel at the Technical University of Denmark. The unique blade design makes the Vaavud™ less sensitive to the way it is pointed; a weakness in impeller type wind meters.
Compatible with Smartphones and Tablets
The Vaavud™2 wind meter application works on iOS or Android devices. The VaavudTM app creates an audio signal, which is transmitted through the jack stick, and then calculates the wind speed and direction by analyzing the signal.
*Requires a digital compass sensor on your phone to measure wind direction! If you’re using a old phone that is not on this list and probably has no digital compass it might still work displaying only the wind speed.
