The idea had come to Stephen Crane our Founder and Inventor, when working at a foreign shipyard, he needed to use metric measurements and using a traditional tape measure didn’t provide that utility. The original digital tape measure DigiTape was Steve’s first production with the Starrett Company. It did well but Steve wanted to redesign it with the homeowner in mind and with a strong emphasis on styling, compactness, and ease of use. Today he unveils the new eTape16 is now part of the Internet of Things revolution; taking measurements and turning them into data. The first most practical “intelligent tool” is here to make an impact on a product that has not changed for over 100 years.

For my wood shop projects it has been a joy. Good accuracy, fast, and consistent. No more turning that musical jewelry box into a singing ashtray for mom on Mother's Day. Large enough display to read easy - will display total inches, feet and inches, or metric. Auto-adjust button for front or back (tape case) measurement.
Just the typical "it ain't exactly the way I want it". Display on the side would've been nice. Kind of a pain lining things up on the side and have to lean over the top to read. No tears, there. Wouldn't mind a better tape "stop and hold" button in the tape. Little buttons on top vs. big fingers - not a show stopper.
In the hands of a trained craftsman this would be excellent! Bought a second one for the wife. She just hands it to me on Saturdays and puts me and it too work. That one won't leave the house. My plan backfired.
Still a great tape measure but fist one broke. No, I didn't drop it! While I was using it, the end piece fell off and retrackted the tape inside the body rendering it useless! I even tried to fix it. But when I opened it up, all the parts exploded and I coudn't get it back together. I like it so much I bought another one. Hopefully this one will last alot longer than the first. It is a good product but, it is not made very well. If you do drop it even once, it's over!!! Taking one star off for durability.
When the eTape 16 first arrived, I took it out of its packaging and started to measure things. Something that I know measures 9" long was measured by this tape measure as 8 15/16" and I became concerned -- I thought it was odd that the measurement was off by 1/16". I grabbed a one-inch accurate calibration target from my good micrometer set and did 10 tests of measuring it with the eTape 16. Three of them were accurate (readout said 1"), six of them read out 15/16" (1/16" error), and one read some funky 3 3/16" so I guess the sensor freaked out on that one measurement. Not good that the eTape16 readout is only accurate 30% of the time and the awe factor of this product being able to give you an accurate measurement readout quickly went away.
The good news is that if you want to do center calculation or convert the units between inches and centimeters, you can pull out the eTape until the readout shows the right distance you need in order to do the center calculation or conversion.
This tape measure is great if you are generally estimating measurements like sizing up scraps to see if they are long or wide enough to use for a woodworking or metalworking project, or if you want to just rough cut a piece of material where you are going to make a more accurate cut later.
If you are going to need exact accuracy like the final cut on a piece of wood for that bookshelf or dresser you are making, the saving grace of the eTape 16 is that there are inch measurements printed on the metal blade so you aren't stuck with a metal blade that just has human-meaningless sensor targets. Use it like a centuries old tape measure to make the accurate marking you need for your project.
P.S. After Amazon made two separate items one Inch/Metric, and the other one - Inch only, everything became perfect. So I changed stars from 2 to 5.
