For your information, although this weather station is quite compact, but it equipped with pressure reading, relative humidity detector, indoor and remote outdoor temperature display. It can be measured in Celsius or Fahrenheit. And, it supported with mbar/hPa or mm Hg.
Beside that, it also has these following fantastic features:
- It included with latest calendar and clock update;
- Easy 3-button user menu;
- 42 hour history display;
