I like the concept but I don't understand what this offers over an analog torque wrench. Maybe I'm just not thinking it through entirely.
There are a number of advantages. First, setting the Torque, and changing from Ft.lbs to Nm is much easier and quicker. Second, you get a warning light and are able to watch the torque applied in real time - so you have less of a chance of over-torquing. Third, the wrench will display the highest torque hit so you know exactly how much torque was applied. And last, you don't have to remember to turn the wrench down to its lowest setting. Forgetting to do this can cause the wrench to go out of calibration.

the only other wrench i have used was a beam style.. so it blows that out of the water. i got mine during a sale for 100 shipped, which is comparable to the price of the craftsman clicker style, but from what ive read, those clicker wrenches arent so reliable.

only thing that is a pain is if you bump it on something, itll turn itself off. and it only stays on for 4 minutes. after that, it shuts itself off when not in use, so you have to turn it back on and set the torque limit again. but otherwise its great, just listen for the beeps and you hit the set point.
