Is there an easy way to check tyre pressure?

There are handheld pressure gauges, but many people find them too bothersome to use as they have to manually check all five tyres (including the spare).

Yet, not checking tyre pressures is criminal.

Fortunately, there is technology to make things easier. You can consider aftermarket tyre pressure monitors from simple pressure warning caps on the filler stem or an electronic monitoring device.

For gadget lovers, Fobo has an app-based system for the smartphone.
