Details
The digital pressure gauge is very precise, measuring pressures up to 11 bar and is suitable for Presta valves. Schwalbe claim it will also function with Schrader valves though in practice we havn't found it a very good fit on them.

Tip: Test tyre pressures at least once per month with a pressure gauge. Testing by thumb is completely unreliable as with just half of the required pressure the tyre will feel hard. Insufficient air pressure is the most common bicycle problem that results in dramatically increased rolling resistance and premature tyre wear.

ConsBit flimsy
ProsLight, accurate
Struggling to keep tyre pressures right on tour I decided to invest in one of these, it's easy to use and the readings seem accurate when compared to a Lezyne floor pump. I don't have it long but hopefully it will stand the test of time.

ConsReset/on-off button is slow to react
ProsSmall, light and accurate.
Over the years I've tried a few different pressure gauges, but this is perhaps the best so far. Not many features compared to Topeak gauge, but better for it IME. Also small & accurate enough to carry in a pocket for checking pressures whilst out on a ride on my 'plus tyre' MTB (latter only work with tyres pressure within 1-2 psi window)

Consbutton, seems week, but that might be me
Prossmall,neat, fits in the hand well
I bought this one today, to replace my old one, 20+ yrs old ( the readout screen was going black) It seems a nice little gauge, very little loss of air when I tried it out, it will give a accurate read out, I've been lost without one.

ConsInitially difficult to fit without losing air
ProsGood value, light
I got this to replace my 25 year old gauge that is now starting to show the passage of time a little! It's a bit harder to get on the valve without losing air than my old one (particularly when it was new) but once on it gives an accurate reading and the beeps really help you to judge when it's got that reading (surprisingly handy for the back wheel where you might just want to get a reading without the display facing you). I haven't tried it on anything other than Prestas at the moment but it looks as if it should work on Schraeders with the brass adapter removed.

ConsNone
ProsAccurate,light,consistent
Takes a few attempts but works well with Presta valves.
Well made and very accurate (cross checked with another accurate gauge and reading was identical).
Good value all round.

ConsBit tight to get on and off without losing air
Prosvery simple to use and seems accurate so far
Good, simple product which works well and seems accurate so far.
Was listed as in stock when ordered online but SJS then advised it was out of stock. SJS sent as soon as restocked and that arrived with 4 days of ordering so no complaints there.

Constricky with small wheels
Prosaccuracy, fits Presta
Ordered this after trying (and returning) another bike tyre pressure gauge which claimed to be suitable to both Presta and Schrader valve types but in fact was totally useless on the Presta ones. This Schwalbe gauge is designed solely for Presta valves and works very well with one slight limitation: it is very fiddly to get in position and airtight on small wheels (My Velomobile has 20" front wheels and it is tricky to get the gauge positioned between the spokes. With care though it can produce accurate readings. ) For the money it is about the best available and the batteries should last a while as it automatically turns off after about 30 seconds.

ConsFirst one didn't work and had to be replaced
ProsSimple, accurate, easy to use
Converted my MTB to tubeless and it seemed the right time to be a little more scientific with my tyre pressures than just squeezing the sidewall. This little gadget is just the job and works well on presta valves.

The first one SJS sent me was dead on arrival but they sent a replacement without quibble so top marks and thanks SJS.

Prosnice
excellent, it will do both valves as well (presta and Schraeder) despite what the shop tells you (just unscrew the brass bit for Schraeder) cheap at £10, but quality kit

ProsEasy to use and great for getting best tyre performance
Really handy and easy to use.Tyre pressure makes a big difference to the grip and rolling resistance.I now have a means of measuring what pressures I was running when I felt I was flying along singletrack or when I was pinging off rocks or slipping off roots.The guage seems accurate at doesn't let much air escape when reading pressures.
Decent Pressure Guage For Little Money

ConsGet a few duff reading's every now and again
ProsSimple guage that's easy to use
This is a nice simple, straight forward, easy to use pressure guage, small and lightweight so easy to stash in your pack if you're out for the day and at risk of punctures. Way more accurate than the guage on my track pump so reassuring to know that I'm now actually riding with the right tyre pressures and also very useful whilst out riding and experimenting with running different tyres pressures in order to achieve the best set up for varying trail conditions.

Good value at just over a tenner too compared to its more expensive (and in my experience very poorly built) rival being offered by other shops!

Conssmall enough to lose amongst all the othe junk
ProsSmall, light, cheap, pretty, apparently accurate, easy to use
At last, a simple gauge that tells you when you've pumped hard and long enough. It's simple to use - couple of tries and then I got the hang of it - and my tyres are now pumped up much harder than I ever realised they needed to be to conform to the markings on the side of the tyre.
