Default Wise Tensioner Accuracy/Repeatability?

I would be very interested to find out if anyone using a Wise Tensioner or other electronic constant pull tensioner has checked the accuracy and repeatability of the devices.

What I am looking for is someone who has installed an accurate digital test scale that the tensioner has pulled against and what the results were. How close does the tensioner repeat the pull each time, does the test scale match what the tensioner says and so on?

For instance, I have read that some of the Babolat tensioners overpull a fixed amount and then release back to a reference tension. Does anyone have actual measurements on what actually happens and how close it repeats?

And confirming that these tensioners are truly constant pull as well.

My understanding is that the overpull on other tensioners is called prestretch sometimes. Correct?

Thanks in advance for your help.
