    A analog is "fragile". If reading is right/ accurte today it might not be the case next month.
    Needle / movement should not be hit. Never.

    I use a good digital one. Many digital are not accurate, easy to read do not mean reading is right. This one is accurate :
    Good for car valves and cycle valves.
    My cycle mechanic use it:

    I still use a mechanical one like the ones pictured above. I recall comparing its reading to another one and to the one on the pump at the gas station. They were all within a pound of each other.
