May 18, 2007, Newsletter Issue #64: LaCrosse vs Oregon Scientific Clocks

Tip of the Week

On your to-do list today: Buy Aunt Ellen a birthday present and card. Compare wireless weather stations. Buy wireless weather station for Aunt Ellen.

No matter where she's going, your adventurous Aunt Ellen likes to be prepared for anything. She doesn't want to bother with a full Davis weather station or Oregon Scientific weather station. An atomic clock or wall clock, you think, will fit the bill. Perfect for Aunt Ellen to check when she's going windsurfing. You've narrowed your choices down to two:

* The LaCrosse wall clock
* The Oregon Scientific Jumbo Weather Forecaster and Atomic Clock

Both clocks are attractive with smooth finish. The Oregon Scientific clock is resplendent in black, while the LaCrosse clock is dressed in a variety of metal and aluminium finishes. But how will they fit Aunt Ellen's style?

If Aunt Ellen likes to avoid the fine print, either the Oregon Scientific clock or the LaCrosse clock is ideal.

On the other hand, if she appreciates more storm warnings before she hits the beach, the LaCrosse clock is designed around changes in barometric pressure. The Oregon Scientific clock has remote sensors with wireless range of 80 to 100 feet unobstructed--not ideal if she stores her kayaking equipment inside or around the outside of the house. If Aunt Ellen's a tidy housekeeper and doesn't live in an aluminum-siding dwelling, you can choose either the Oregon Scientific or the LaCrosse, which you can configure to work with a wireless temperature sensor/waterproof probe.

The Oregon Scientific clock does have more options, such as crescendo alarms and atmospheric pressure indicators. But if your Aunt Ellen wants a no-fuss weather station clock, the LaCrosse will delight her. The best part: You won't have to water her plants while she goes on safari, because she set her automatic sprinkler thanks to the clock you gave her. Now you can join her on safari!
