Made in the USA, StrikeAlert HD Field is the first portable device that combines both lightning detection and heat index monitoring.

Retailing for $299.00, The StrikeAlert HD Field maintains the original StrikeAlert HD's revolutionary 360 degree protection. This omnidirectional capability removes the blind spots of current 180 degree detectors. The StrikeAlert HD covers you independent of orientation, toss it in your backpack or clip it to your golf bag and trust that it will detect in all directions. The ingenious 60 minute Storm Trend function quantifies the number of strikes each minute as well as the distance. This trend is useful for identifying the appropriate action and duration according to your regulations.

The StrikeAlert HD Field continues to innovate by adding Heat Index monitoring. The Heat Index is a measure of how hot it really feels when relative humidity is factored in with the actual air temperature. This is important because of the increased risk of heat exhaustion and heat stroke due to the body's reduced ability to cool itself through perspiration. The StrikeAlert HD Field's color graphical display allows for quick determination of the existing risk factor using the standard 4 color heat stress chart. A cursor indicates whether Caution (yellow), Extreme Caution (light orange), Danger (deep orange), or Extreme Danger (red) conditions exist.
