One of the things I really liked about the now-defunct MSN Direct service was the weather forecasts delivered directly to my over-sized watch. But I guess this Meteo Watch from Oregon Scientific might be an adequate alternative. Instead of downloading weather data from an over-the-air broadcast, the watch measures and analyzes barometric pressure trends in order to provide a somewhat accurate forecast for the next 12 to 24 hours.
The reverse LCD display will show one of 4 “easy-to-read” icons including sunny, partly cloudy, cloudy and rainy. The Meteo watch also features a stopwatch function that will run for up to 60 hours, calendar and alarm functions, a backlight and is water resistant up to 30 meters. It’s available on the Oregon Scientific website for $69.99.
