The US$49.95Eve Weather is handy for me as a runner as it allows me to check on outdoor conditions. The gadget makes it easy to check on the temperature, humidity, and air pressure, so I can dress appropriately for my run.

Wth IPX3 water resistance, even a little rain won’t hurt the Eve Weather, though I keep it on the front porch and under a roof, where it generally won’t get wet. As with the Eve Room, you can use Siri on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to ask for temperature or humidity. That’s very convenient.
If you wish to see each of Weather’s data points over time, you can as highs and lows are color-coded in for temperature, humidity and air pressure. The Eve Weather is powered by double AA batteries.
Battery-operated Thread accessories, such as Eve Weather, represent endpoints in a Thread network, so if you’re into such accessories, you’ll appreciate the functionality of the device.
