Has anyone ever tried a digital torque adapter instead of using a torque wrench?

I know a lot of torque wrenches break and require replacing, particularly the click-type ones. Doing some research tonight I stumbled upon an interesting little product which fits onto a regular ratchet/bar and measures torque, essentially turning your regular ratchet or breaker bar into a digital torque wrench. It's much easier and cheaper to replace a broken ratchet or breaker bar than a torque wrench. The only thing is these don't seem like they can be calibrated.

Has anyone ever tried them?

This one below has a rotating head on it so you can spin it to face you if needed:

I watched a video online and apparently these have an audible beep that starts beeping rapidly when you get close to the desired torque and they beep solid when you hit it and it can be used in either a peak-torque measurement way or real-time.

Thoughts/experience anyone?

any updates on this?
I ordered the AC Delco one. It works great! I've used it on wheel lugs and just recently on spark plugs. I usually do spark plugs by feel and that's always worked just fine, but I decided to try it on that a few days ago just to see how it would work for low torque applications. Two thumbs up from me.
