What is the Best Digital Bike Tire Pressure Gauge?

I'm looking at buying a digital tire gauge for my mountain bike tires and am wondering which digital bike tire gauge I should purchase? I need the gauge to fit Presta valves, so I've been looking at the SKS Airchecker Digital Presta and Schrader Pressure Gauge and the Topeak D2 SmartGauge. Which is the best Digital tire gauge for Presta valves?

I have both and I'd recommend you go with the Topeak D2 SmartGauge tire gauge. It can check both Presta and Schrader valves and you can quickly change between the two. It's a solid gauge that gets tons of good reviews for being accurate. In general, Topeak just makes really good and reliable bike tools and pumps.

I also have the SKS Airchecker Digital gauge and bought it based on the fact that Aaron Gwin's mechanic recommended it. It worked pretty well for a while, however lately it no longer gives me accurate tire pressure readings. The tire pressure readings are way off, I'll take a reading and it will say like 4 PSI, then take another and it will say 15 PSI. It's all over the map, so something happened to it, not sure what.
