@SixScrews: Yes, it is true to some extent. Also, the probe and accessories from them are again expensive - e.g. probes.

About 6 years ago, I purchased a meter (Fluke size) from Radio Shack that could feed a digital out via USB (serial adapter) for $69. Given that you can now purchase a bluetooth based OBDII reader for $10 on Amazon, it seems as though it's not a stretch to expect a respectable multimeter that can connect via bluetooth for well under $100.

Inexpensive is the title and yes, they are inexpensive, but that brings to mind the old saw 'you get what you pay for.'  I'm not sure an osclliscope the size of a wristwatch is useful execpt in a pinch - but maybe I'm just an old codger who likes his larger screens.  A lot of these gizmos seem to be small for the sake of being small, not for the sake of functionality.  As someone said, 'now that you have taught the dog to talk, what does it have to say?'

Pocket Antenna Analyser

As an additional additional example of inexpensive ($360) and portable test tool, check out the SARK-110 Antenna Analyser. http://sark110.ea4frb.eu

This is a network analyser for reflection measurements intended for antenna analysis, which includes additional features for cable testing (TDR mode) and programmable RF signal generation.

This is the result of a personal project and it has been in the market since early 2012 (except in the US because a potential issue with a patent).

If you are aware about the DSO QUAD oscilloscope, you will notice that the housing is exactly the same (it has been reused from it) but inside is completely different.

Which of these devices do you think offers the best value for the price? They all seem rather affordable, but then there's the question of usability.

@AZ, I wondered the same thing. See my comment in Try an oscilloscope for under $200

Oscilloscope watch

I thought it was exciting when companies started offering measurement tools that connected to the iPad, but the oscilloscope watch takes this to a whole new level.

But my question is, who among you would actually connect test leads to the watch while you're wearing it? I suppose it depends on the circuit under test, but I had this humorous vision of a guy testing a high voltage switching regulator with his oscilloscope watch...while still wearing it on his wrist :)
