Gates Belt Tension Check/Adjustment

I would like to check my belt tension. After about 150-200 miles it seems a bit under-tensioned by just pressing on it. I would like to accurately check our belts. I have read the Gates Carbon Drive manual. I have downloaded and used the Gates app with decent success and marginal confidence. The manual references the Kriket Gauge and the Eco Tension Tester. I have ordered the Kriket Gauge. I looked for the Eco Tension Tester and have not located any here in the USA.
What do you use to check and adjust your belt?

Update: (11/4/20) I verified belt tension utilizing both the Kriket and the Gates App. No problems were found.

I am interested in a belt tension tool. Which model did you buy?
