The "world's first" weather watch is available from May from Oregon Scientific, who should know a thing or two about the tech, being leading producers of digital weather stations.

This multipurpose watch has a clock, alarm and calendar function, but crucially for those who want to know what's going on in the weather world, it also predicts the next day's forecast.

Befitting for a watch aimed at outdoors types, it is waterproof and has a stopwatch function too.

It should also prove of interest to the nine out ten of us who apparently start all conversations with a comment about the weather, at least with this you'll be accurate.

Nab one from May, for £39.99, available direct from Oregon Scientific.
