Typical mini-pump gauges have issues of accuracy and size. The gauge can't be so big that it feels bulky in a jersey pocket nor can it be too small to read. Much like a high-end watch, the internal mechanism of an accurate pump gauge consists of a variety of small, precision parts with precise movements. Also similar to a watch, the internal components of a floor pump gauge are already very small in size. As we looked at creating a gauge small enough to mount on a mini-pump, we found that as the overall size of the gauge decreased, the internal mechanism needed to be simplified and therefore accuracy decreased rapidly. This leaves traditional mini-pump gauges generally being barely more accurate than squeezing the tire with your fingers.

Expensive for a mini pump but very high quality and works as advertised. I thought that the bluetooth app might be questionable, but it also works perfectly. I’m impressed!
I love this pump across road, gravel and MTB use cases. In deciding whether it’s worth it for you, I encourage you to consider 2 things: 1) The real value of this pump is being able to easily experiment with and adjust pressure mid-ride, every ride, any ride. Maybe you’re riding some finer gravel and you want to see what it would be like to drop 2psi in the rear. Maybe you’re reinflating after a flat and want to return to exactly the pressure you were at before. This pump makes that fine tuning far easier, which improves the quality and efficiency of your ride across a variety of conditions. Not unlike some high-tech frame features that cost far more. 2) Silca support is the best in the business. I was new to Silca pumps with this and I had some difficulty adjusting to the different chuck. The problem was me, not the pump, and Silca support was generous and prompt with their assistance educating me how to use the chuck properly. Advice for purchasers: Replace the battery at least every year (or more), irrespective of use, to keep the connection reliable. I use it with an iPhone 10s and the connection is quick and reliable as long as the battery is fresh.
