Takeaway: Good for checking the tire pressure on my Honda Civic.

I needed an accurate tire pressure gauge because the TPMS sensors in my tires are all dead (battery done after 5+ years) and they're too expensive to replace. I'm okay with checking my tires pressure manually on occasion as it's a good habit anyway. This is a simple, round needle-read gauge. It comes with a brief set of instructions but is straight forward to use. The gauge is made of stainless steel and has a valve that rotates 360 degrees. The stem measures 2.25" long and the diameter of the gauge face is 2.5". The units on the gauge are bar and PSI and go from 0 to 100 PSI or 0 to 7 bar. The gauge is protected by a rubber sleeve to prevent damage if it is accidentally dropped. After taking a reading it will stay on the gauge when you remove it from the tire. On the side of the stem is the pressure release button to clear the reading, which you must do between readings.

When compared to the gauge on my air compressor, the readings were always matched or fairly close (within 1-2 PSI). I only use this with my car which I fill the tires to a max PSI of ~32; the readings appear precise and accurate. The only thing is I wish the stem were a bit longer in length as on some cars I can't get the gauge to fit on the valve because the rims are too wide. I have not tried to read pressures above 35 PSI (like for bike tires) so I don't know the accuracy for the higher pressures, but it works for what I need. Overall, I think the gauge is well-made and easy to use.
