Editor's Notes

September 11, 2019:

Ultimately, the main advantage that a digital level has over the classic bubble level is to make readouts easier and faster to understand, eliminating much of the guesswork. This is especially valuable for those who have impaired vision, but also for anyone who uses a level day-to-day and wants to speed up their workflow. In fact, many of the digital levels on the market have retained the spirit vials of old, in case you want a backup way to check the alignment of a surface.

Since most digital levels operate at about the same margin of error, our ranking was influenced not so much by claims of accuracy but more so by a model's durability and features that improve the user interface -- such as a backlit display and audible indicator.

Having an audible indicator, which alerts you when you've achieved a target angle, can be crucial when working in situations that require you to face away from your level.

Our top pick, the Calculated Industries AccuMASTER PRO, has all the aforementioned features, plus a display that flips automatically when the tool is inverted, giving you a lot of flexibility with how you use it.

Also worth spotlighting is the General Tools ToolSmart, which takes the leap from digital level to smart level, and can save data to your phone or tablet via a Bluetooth connection.

Word thrift and clarity were pounded into his prose by merciless editors during his days as a breaking news reporter for a wire service. These days he can usually be found trawling through public records and tracking down shadowy shell companies for a nonprofit media organization he co-founded. He enjoys his time away from the screen by pursuing a hobby restoring furniture, giving him special insight into woodworking tools and materials. His filmmaking experience also turned him—willing or not—into something of an audio and video equipment fiend.
