The Kenko can do readouts in EV if one wants - I have one and use it in spot mode all the time. It is a rebadged Minolta meter, which in someways makes it old technology as it is from the '90's but was designed when film ruled the roost & is none the worse for that. The newer Sekonic ones seem to be biased for "dig" or is that just marketing hype !!!! Was tempted with a Sekonic but couldn't justify the extra £150 for a similar model.

Agree that the best thing is to try them out in a shop first, I did and based my decision on that comparison.
