Competition Electronics ProChrono DLX $109.99 at Midway. Easy set up and it works. Fits well in the top of my range tool box.

I've used the ProChrono Digital for years. I also got it at Midway. There are fancier ones with bluetooth for your phone so you can see the readout more easily and I think have Apps to collect the data. If I was at a busy range I would probably get one of those. But I shoot weekdays at my club and am often the only one there.

Midway sells both the CE1-3800 and the CE1-3820.
Both have bluetooth, the 3820 specs show twice the accuracy resolution, and it is slightly cheaper. What is the difference between the two? (I've already ordered the 3820)

Differences? Read the specs. For starters, the 3800 doesn't have bluetooth.

Nothing real fancy here, been using my Shooting Chrony (Beta model) now for over 25 years for both rifle and handgun. Not real expensive, works perfectly.

My original unit went TI after about 15 years, complained to the CS at the factory, they sent me a brand new unit at no charge that has functioned without issues for years now.

I've recorded velocities from 800fps~ to over 4,000fps~. Not a bad investment for about $125. You can spend much more if wanted, lots of choices out there.

"Differences? Read the specs".

I read the specs. Specs on one of the websites that sells them said both had bluetooth. I didn't know, so I asked. I figured someone here would set me straight. Thanks.

BTW, I had already ordered the 3820.

Do you have link for the website that says the 3200 has bluetooth?

I don't recall seeing or saying anything about a 3200. What are they?
And no, I don't remember which site said the 3800 had bluetooth.
