Discontinued in February 2018. If you connect to your Kestrel Ballistics App, you will be asked to upgrade, which will give you the new 5700 firmware (not the Elite). There is no charge for the upgrade.

The Kestrel Sportsman Weather Meter combines accurate measurement of air density and wind with a powerful ballistics calculator to deliver precise elevation and windage solutions for any gun, any round, any shot. The built-in enhanced Applied Ballistics G1/G7 ballistics solver is tested and trusted by long-range hunters and shooters. As a general rule, this meter is for people shooting out to 800 yards.

The Kestrel Sportsman is a tremendous value in full-featured ballistics calculators with trusted accuracy and reliability. This integrated weather meter and ballistics solver takes the guesswork out of long-range shooting and is an ideal companion for hunters and shooters working within the supersonic flight range of their bullet.
