Just saying, automotive tire gauges excel in that range of pressure. Schraeder only I am afraid. But I would be shocked if 'fatty' tubes came in Presta. Of course I know nothing about it. Nothing at all. Anyway, that was hardly helpful. I try to be helpful when possible. Here is what I know. I haven't owned (or needed) a tire gauge since I started using Joe Blow (Topeak) floor pumps which have perfectly serviceable gauges built in. I trust mine to measure pressures as low as 20psi and up to 100+ psi, and if the pump is off a pound or two at 30psi I DOUBT anything bad is going to happen. TL;DR: ANY tire gauge sold that reads Presta and Schraeder can be used for the o.p.'s purposes. Some are even digital, but the sensors are analog so the accuracy of the digital unit isn't any higher. It just seems that way. This is intentional.

Never used it so can't voucher for it, but it seems to cover your range and handles both valve types.

From what I am learning (I am new with the fat bike) you wan a gauge that can measure 8-12lbs low for beach higher for trails
So I was asking about a good one to be accurate with pressure

That's not low.

Search for the "accugauge" on Amazon. There's a model that goes up to 15psi for fatbikes. Higher than you'll ever need to go.

Guage

Schwable airman digital Guage, accurate down below five psi. Replaceable battery as well. Shimano also made one but the battery was not replaceable but it was a little cheaper.

pro tip, from a long distance rider, for one of your presta valves use a schrader adapter as a the valve cover. It will save you should you find yourself needing air at a station.
