    It's a gadget, but not as we know it…

    Well, bought one of these Netatmo stations after my previous weather gadgets decided to stop working after 4 years. On opening, there's no doubt the two units (internal, and external) are stylish, hence the cost, no doubt). Everything was easy to set up. I was soon able to check weather data using all my iOS and OSX kit. OK, the information is relatively limited (compared to a full weather station which would cost half the price), but the apps are attractive and much thought has been put into the whole Netatmo ecosystem.

    I do believe I got what I paid for. 4 stars only because of the need to protect the outside unit from rain. This is a weather station - call me picky, but surely something meant to go outside would be waterproof?

    Apart from that great fun, and using the Netatmo website to see (on a map) weather data uploaded from other Netatmo stations across the globe is a fun feature!

    Very good looking units, easy to set up and fun to use. Nice app. Sadly the humidity readings seem to be way too high which is unacceptable for for a weather station at this price, but most of all renders it useless when you can't trust the readings. Hopefully they will offer replacement units if/once they fix it.

    I was so unsure about buying this, but I have to say I am glad I did!

    I was shocked to find the external sensor must be kept out of the rain, but it makes sense really in the same way you keep it out of the sun, to keep the readings accurate.

    Easy to setup, fun to analyse the data and combine with my Owl Intuition I can set my heating to match the weather conditions from anywhere in the world.

    Buy it, you won't be disappointed.
