UR­BAN WEATHER STA­TION – £139 IT would take a lot to con­vince me to fork out this much money on a weather sta­tion.

The first thing you no­tice is how small th­ese things are. How can so much weather-read­ing po­ten­tial be con­tained in such a small shell?

That said, I am a tes­ta­ment to good things com­ing in small pack­ages (not a ref­er­ence to my pe­nis!). It’s not the size of some­thing that mat­ters but how well it works (once again, not my todger!).

The Ur­ban Weather Sta­tion is made up of two alu­minium cylin­ders. The big­ger one gets to stay in­side and hang out with you while the smaller one is ban­ished to the cold waste­lands out­side – bla­tant height­ism!

They com­mu­ni­cate with each other over WiFi and then send their data to your tablet or mo­bile.

It’s im­por­tant to note straight away that th­ese will ONLY work with Ap­ple prod­ucts.

What’s re­ally cool is the amount of info you re­ceive. But there are a cou­ple of nig­gles. The main one is the out­door sen­sor has to be pro­tected from ele­ments. The other is the price. It is still a fan­tas­tic prod­uct, though.

Easy to set up, easy to use and rich in in­for­ma­tion – three very big fac­tors which make this weather info guru great.
