Etwas teuer, aber gut
The application is very simple and fast, I am very satisfied. Only the price seems a bit high to me.

Good but expensive, or expensive but good, depending on your priorities
Good product, easy to use and giving accurate measurements. It is of course impossible to verify the correctness of the measurements for such a device, but it is important that it be faithful, that is to say that several successive measurements give the same value, which is not the case. with some other brands. This instrument makes it possible to reliably compare the tension of the stays on the two edges, or to check if the tension varies in time. The main defect is the price. There is no documentation provided, and the device does not really need it because it is extremely easy to use, but we would have liked documentation on how to adjust the rig. Once you have measured the tension, how do you know if it is correct? It should also be noted that the device does not make it easy to measure the tension of the stay in the presence of a reel. It is necessary to be satisfied to measure the tension of the low forestay and the (of) backstays. It is therefore a good device to measure the evolution of the tension of the element, but insufficient for the initial setting. The free smartphone application is a gadget that only serves to memorize measurements. An entry in the logbook is more useful, especially if you realize that the price of the "free" app is actually included in the purchase price of the device.
