Our take on unlocking the additional readings when used together:

In addition to the individual benefits and readings that both machines offer, the EasyDens and SmartRef can be used together to gain the addtional following measurements in finished beer or wine. These measurements do not require that you have an upfront original measurements. 

Beer: Alcohol by volume, Alcohol by weight, Final Gravity, Original Gravity (wow), and Real Extract

Wine: Alchol by volume and Residual Sugar (very cool)

The EasyDens by Anton Paar

Anton Paar is a leading producer of analytical testing equipment for commercial breweries. Borrowing some technology from their high end machines, the EasyDens digital gravity/alcohol tester is designed for savvy homebrewers and small commercial breweries.  It is a precision gravity/density testing unit which can accurately read gravity with a tiny 2 ml sample at any point in the brewing process.  Alcohol % can also be tracked at any point during fermentation. The unit hooks up to your smartphone via Bluetooth and stores various fermentation "profiles" enabling you to track fermentation progress, alcohol levels, and help know when it's time to keg & drink your beer!
