1、技术方面 两家都是中国最早从事胎压监测的单位，伟力通做得比较专一，只做胎压监测， 市面上所反应其质量较为稳定，如报警准确与及时性，产品耐用性：内置用8年， 外置的用3年，够我们用了。其销量可能是仅次于铁将军。 2、外观方面 铁将军的的外观很传统，中规中矩。但伟力通的较为时尚，看了他们的太阳能显 示屏，真心比铁将军的花的心思多。就看各位喜欢了。 3、价格方面 铁将军的性价比算是高的了，但相比伟力通的贵了150元以上。贵要有贵的理由， 贵在哪些方面呢？ 销售模式：将军是以防盗电子起家，多年经营的线下渠道是其生存基础，其网上 销售仅以辅助。定价也就有所顾忌了，要考虑到线下经销商的盈利空间。 品牌营销投入：据我所知，铁将军每年的广告投入巨大，卖的就是品牌！呵呵。
