Who Needs Al Roker?
The Kestrel 4000 Pocket Weather Tracker ($329), from Nielsen-Kellerman, is a handheld weather station. It measures barometric pressure, altitude, density altitude, temperature, humidity, wind speed, windchill factor, dew point, wet bulb temperature and heat stress. The Kestrel 4000 can store up to four months of data, so when a similar array of factors occurs, users can accurately predict the weather. Nielsen-Kellerman, 800-784-4221; www.nkhome.com.
A Sharp Knife
Swiss Army's Altimeter Plus ($102) puts a contemporary twist on a classic pocketknife. An LCD window in the handle displays altitude in meters and feet, and temperature in Celsius and Fahrenheit. (You switch between the readings by pressing the Cross and Shield button.) In addition to the electronic gadgetry, the tool features the familiar Swiss Army accessories, including large and small blades, a bottle opener, screwdriver, wire stripper, corkscrew, can opener, scissors, tweezers and a toothpick.
