That was exactly the reason for asking about the OS.  Thank you again!

So here I am about 10 months into using these fobo tyre sensors, have had one battery change (today) and I ride and use this daily.  In terms of pressure loss it's basically nil.... The app is great, the sensors are holding up well, and I can't fault this solution

100% recommend it

Have a look  at these

I had them on my Victory CCT and they were great.  Used a Samsung Android to monitor the pressure.

Only thing stopping me from getting TPMS that screws on the valve is lack of redundancy.  It seems face and kmoulds are happy with this product but I am still worried that I might suddenly loose the tyre pressure.  This concern maybe real or just perceived.

Standard tyre valves have a pin inside that holds the air in... which has to be pressed 'in' to release the air.  Between that and a valve cap, sudden loss of air might be uncommon.  I am picturing fobo turning slowly over time until it starts letting air out but not unwound enough for the valve pin to prevent air loss.

I also have tubes in my tyres so not sure if the rubber valves can handle having that extra weight.

BUT the benefit is great for having fobo.  No one enjoys checking tyre pressure so most of us only check every month (if not less frequently).  Tyre mileage and performance is affected.  I am sold on the benefit of TPMS... I just prefer the one inside the wheel.  Which I can't use on my Vintage... a dilemma.  🤔
