Oregon Scientific weather monitoring smart clock
Most folks would probably dismiss a weather monitor with built-in clock function as a “meh” device, but this one from Oregon Scientific aims to impress you with more than just its functions. It boasts a projection clock that will react constantly to forecasted weather from 12 to 24 hours in advance, changing its display color accordingly (red, light blue, blue, orange and green), depending on the upcoming weather condition. Dubbed the BAR339P, this device helps you plan your day ahead with a range of outdoor conditions including sunny, partly cloudy, cloudy, rainy and snowing using a remote sensor with a range of up to 100 feet (30m).
In addition, each purchase also comes with a dual line projection arm that shows the time, alarm status and outdoor temperature in blue, whilst it is able to be tilted and rotated 180 degrees in order to suit numerous viewing angles. The inclusion of automatic sensors help detect the light intensity in the room, enabling it to switch the projection function on or off automatically whenever a preset level is detected. As for its “light-touch key technology”, you no longer have to grapple with unsightly buttons as key functions can be accessed simply by touching the surface of the device. The Oregon Scientific BAR339P measures 4.78″ × 4.57″ × 2.29″, making it the perfect addition for just about any bedside table.
Those who are interested in the BAR339P Projection Clock with Color Weather Forecast will be able to pick it up for $65 – that’s a pretty good price considering the cool factor it brings to your home. Should it not be enough for your needs, there is always the Easy Weather Station Pro that also measures and predicts humidity and barometric pressure while indicating the current phase of the moon phase. Alternatively, you could always be a cheapskate and tune in to the weather channel.
