SysMetrix: Clock, system info and weather, all-in-one

SysMetrix is a free skinnable clock and metering application for Windows that displays a wide variety of system information as well as time and date.

SysMetrix can monitor and report on dozens of different hardware and software statistics. Apart from the usual CPU usage, memory usage and hard disk space usage, SysMetrix can report on temperatures, voltages, fan speeds of different hardware components, battery state, network traffic, wireless signal strength, IP address, Windows uptime, state of caps lock/num lock/scroll lock keys and more.


Additionally, SysMetrix also provides a way to check your POP3 email account, display weather reports, empty the recycle bin, and shutdown/logoff/restart the computer from a context menu.

SysMetrix can display these information in a variety of different ways – as analog clock, as text, histograms, bargraphs, animations, sliders and many more.

SysMetrix is also skinnable with myriads of different skins to choose from. Each of these skin can be further customized by removing or adding any monitoring gauge to it. You can even create your own skins from scratch with the exact tools you want displayed.

If you don’t want all these monitoring, then well, you can just choose the clock. SysMetrix is delightfully flexible and versatile.
