Two of the most highly rated outdoor thermometers are the La Crosse Technology digital outdoor thermometer and Bjerg Instruments adjustable angle garden thermometer. Each thermometer received a minimum of four out of five stars from reviews on Amazon.com.
The La Crosse Technology digital thermometer is highly rated due to its wireless capabilities, with an outdoor sensor that transmits temperature and time accurately. Several reviewers commented on ease of use with a large, easy to read display and an easy to follow instruction manual. One reviewer mentioned that the range between the sensor and display was impressive but not as far as advertised, around 350 feet. Negative reviewers state that the unit drains batteries very quickly, resulting in multiple replacements, and that customer service for faulty products was almost non-existent or very poor.
The adjustable angle thermometer from Bjerg Instruments received 4.5 stars, with reviewers praising the attractive satin nickel finish and durability of the product. One individual commented on how easy the thermometer was to read and the convenience of a manual instrument that gives an accurate temperature. One negative reviewer mentioned difficulty in mounting the thermometer, with it rotating in strong winds, potentially making it unreadable depending on where it is placed. Another found it unsuitable for particularly cold areas as it only reads to minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit.
