Good for tracking progress if you can be consistant with taking your measurements.
What Jeremy said.
Say that I've never had my body fat tested, and don't really know how to do it, and don't really know anyone that would teach me. My gym requires a PT session to get it tested. Would I be better off getting digital calipers or the normal calipers?
Get it done at your gym.
Most digital only ask for two or 3 placements most and can fluctuate quite a bit. Even for trending or comparison purposes they aren't the greatest.
If you get it tested at the gym, try to have the same person do it. While they might not be the most accurate person or use the best method, they should be consistent. This will allow you to at least see a trend for your progress.
