    Digital Tire Gauge Accurate at Low PSI?

    I don't own a digital gauge but plan to buy one soon. Are these gauges accurate at the low pressures we use on fat bikes? Any brands to avoid or recommend?

    Thanks!
    There are three kinds of people: those of us that are good at math and those that are not.

    I have the Scwalbe digital gauge and it works very well, I have an old low pressure dial gauge from a past ATV and I like the digital gauge much better. They both read pretty close, it is just easier to read the digital.

    Cheers,
    Steven

    Bought the Schwalbe one directly from Schwalbe and it's been my go-to gauge for a few months now.

    I've seen this same gauge with many different brand names...

    Mine is the Planet Bike AirMate Digital Gauge version.
    It works quite well.
