The tape measure has been the workman’s best friend for ages. and now it has gone digital. It looks like a standard retractable tape measure, but it includes an LCD display on the top that can display and store measurements down to 1/16 of an inch. It features a large, easy to read LCD display that can display and store measurements down to 1mm or 1/16". The digital read out will display in cm, feet, inches or fractions of inches and can take into account the length of the casing when you are measuring in tight places.

When you pull the tape out it will automatically turn on and retracting it will turn it off. That way you don’t forget about it and find the device drained when you really need it.

Warranty: 5 years

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Bought this four weeks ago and used it for the first time today. When I used it the measurement details were not correct. 10cm was displayed as 8cm. Then trying 4 metres it gave a digital reading of 1.9 metres. Might be that this one is one of the few bad ones. It is not a cheap tape measure. I will be taking it back for a refund and then buy a good old fashion model.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buy Plenty Spare Batteries! I bought this tape about a year ago I've used it sparingly, however when I do need it I've had to replace the battery 6 so far and counting ! I went to use it today and the battery was low & the digital reading was flashing. I wouldn't recommend this tape.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money I bought one of these a couple of months ago as I wanted accurate measurements every time, but now it reads 10mm or more extra than the actual length. A good idea but doesn't meet expectations. I have tried to calibrate but no better.
