So I was looking at getting a tyre pressure gauge.

Analogue or Digital? I would prefer the former as I don't want to have to be messing about with batteries but are they as good?

Any advice?

Thanks

I use an analog one, it's very durable and like you said, no need to mess with batteries. I actually keep one in the car and another at home.

digital is more accurate. i'd pick a simple digital one.

I think analogue tire gauges are better, I have a $5US that works great, really as long as you are within +-1PSI you should be fine. Here in the United States, we can't really rely on the tire pressure gauges that are at air pumps in gas stations too much.

This is false. Race teams use analog dial pressure guages due to consistency and their durability as well as their accuracy over the digital models. I use a analog for my sons race car which is accurate to .01 and is very consistent.

Btw the pencil gauges are accurate to .5 lbs. not bad for around a dollar. And they don't need batteries.

This one is up to 2% but goes up to 60 lbs. mine is a 15lbs for my sons car.
