The Wintact WT530 and the Helect are evenly matched in terms of performance power. Both models receive a strong score of 8.0 from our benchmark, performing well in both cold and hot tests.

When it comes to design, the Helect takes the lead. Our reviewers have noted its more rugged and well-built housing and a brighter laser emitter than the Wintact WT530. The Helect achieves a total design score of 8.0, while the Wintact WT530 falls slightly behind with a score of 7.6.

However, in terms of usability, the Helect falls short. It lacks any additional measurement modes, placing it behind the Wintact, which offers four. The Helect receives a usability score of only 5.35, while the Wintact WT530 achieves a commendable 8.1.

So, if measurement accuracy is your main concern, both models can deliver. The deciding factors lie in design and usability. If you prioritize a well-built thermometer, the Helect is a solid choice. However, if versatility is what you seek in an infrared thermometer, the Wintact WT530 should be taken into consideration!
