New Smart GasWatch Scale Keeps Eye on BBQ Tank with Digital Alerts to Keep Propane Fires Burning
MATTHEWS, N.C. --(Business Wire)--
The new Smart GasWatch Scale makes sure that backyard entertaining never
runs short of propane, a true "peace of mind" innovation that will keep
the BBQ grill fired up in the summer and outdoor patio heater warming in
"Summer may be ending soon, but many households rely on the grill year
'round and the new Smart GasWatch Scale is ideal for BBQ grills and
wintertime heaters that use propane tanks as a source of fuel. This
week, we're introducing two new models of the Smart GasWatch Scale and
both are available now on Amazon.com,
and at GasWatch.com,"
said North Carolina technology entrepreneur Shaliendra Suman (News - Alert), who first
introduced an analog version of GasWatch product ten years ago.
The original GasWatch Model TVL212, which is still available, uses an
analog gauge to estimate remaining fuel in a propane tank.
"We first introduced the GasWatch gauges as a simple way to solve a very
frustrating problem - running out of propane in the middle of a cookout.
Now we've enhanced GasWatch to offer a simple and cost-effective way to
keep an eye on how much gas is left in the tank just by monitoring the
weight of the tank itself. For about the cost of a single tank refill,
you can always know how much cooking time is left on your current tank,"
said Suman, who was recognized this year by the Mayor of Charlotte with
an Entrepreneur of the Year award.
Ideal for Grills and Propane Heaters
The new GasWatch Digital Scale provides peace of mind with a digital
display of how much gas remains in the propane tank, a real-time
calculation of remaining cooking time, and convenient audible alerts at
the 20%, 15% and 10% remaining fuel levels. Since the GasWatch Digital
Scale simply measures tank weight, it is very accurate and safe to use.
"We designed the new Smart GasWatch Scale to fit into most grill
cabinets and patio heaters, and it is built to withstand ever-changing
weather conditions. The new GasWatch is easy to set up and requires no
tools. Simply place the tank on the scale, select the tank weight and
the scale is ready-to-go," said Suman.
The new Smart GasWatch Scale resembles a large plastic "doughnut" that
sits under the propane tank and is available in two different models.
The basic Model TVL 216 features a digital readout fixed to the circular
baseplate and is available at a suggested retail price of $24.95. Model
TVL 214 includes a 4.5 foot wire to connect the baseplate to a remote
digital readout (allowing display placement closer to the cooking area)
and carries a suggested retail price of $29.95.
