Kestrel 2700 Ballistic, weather meter with bluetooth

Morning all.
I received a Kestrel 2700 Ballistic, weather meter with bluetooth. I've been playing with it for a week now, getting things sorted. I really like it, very small waterproof & drop proof. If nothing else I now have a better understanding of wind velocity.
The 2700 is good to 875yds ideal for my hunting.

Is anyone else using a Kestrel? Let me know what you think.

I find it very good, should have had one years ago, although the 2700 has only been out about 12mths.

I use the kestrel 3000 for work. Simple to use, just make sure you give it plenty of time to acclimatise before relying on the readings. There is no way to calibrate them yourself so worth testing it against a known weather station occasionally.
Given my hunting is always less than 400m I have never bothered using it for shooting.
Cheers

Thanks Dale.
Thanks for your reply. I've been using it out to 800yds now, can't fault it.[b]

I have the 2500. No ballistics function. No Bluetooth
Apart from the general data, I use the wind speed function as Bob as described. IE to test and improve my wind estimation skills (or lack thereof).
I do the same with my RF.

Thanks Lain.
I really like this little 2700. I does everything I need out to 875yds, that's ample for what I do, Deer to 500 feral's out wider.

I'm considering buy a RF with bluetooth, leave the 2700 in your pocket, it sends the dope to your RF . [b]
