Are there any digital tools for reading hot tub water?

There are a lot of kits out there but to test everything, it looks messy and cumbersome. I was wondering if there is a digital tool available that I could just drop a probe into the hot tub or pour in hot tub water into its container and the tool will do all the measurements.

The easiest for doing everything in one are multi test strips. They have several pads on the test strip that test different parameters of your water. There are digital instruments but they are a bit expensive ($100+) and they only test for one thing and they often need calibration solutions, need cleaning and for some tests the testing probe of the instrument has a limited lifespan.

I dont know about the $100 probes but 2 years ago I switched to this Aqua Test and it's made keeping my spa clean and clear. Once I figured out the base line it was simple to make the adjustments needed to keep water in balance.
