    A Social Weather Station

    /

    Swiss-based electronic instrument manufacturer JDC has launched recently its latest weather station, the Skywatch BL500. This pocket-sized device (26*116 mm) is able to measure wind speed, temperature, humidity, pressure and UV Index.

    All these data are then both displayed and recorded automatically on a smartphone, paired with the Skywatch BL500 via Bluetooth  Environmental Sensing Profile (the company claims its device is the first to use this new protocol) .

    They can also be shared on social networks, including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. A Skywatch BL500 costs 222.75 CHF (app. €206).
