Tool Kit Depot are trying quite hard to make good impressions in the market. Worth a go.

When not being lured into the Snap On van, my young bloke sources his stuff from TKD.

On the couple of occasions I've been with him, their service levels have been very good. (Joondalup store)

Sure was.

For these torque wrenches, I’d go bike shop though. They do some serious kit when it comes to fixings and tools of this nature. Like really good stuff.

There’s always a Giant Bicycle shop nearby.

Definitely , small ,low range need a 1/4 .
Giant = great bikes , I've got one of their flat bar road bikes I've put over 35k kms on .

A Mate used to run a bike shop.
This is the one he would often use
Mechpro 1/4 Torque Wrench

Otherwise this would almost fit the bill of 3/8 and in the range of values.
HRD 3/8

*unless you want to do left and right threads, in which case you might be looking at something else with a drive that slides through either side like from Norbar

Haha, nah....
My current one isn't sick, it's just homemade in a shed.

The mate (who also has a non fancy shed made bike) used to use that mechpro one on some very high end builds.
So for general purpose it'll do the job.

But again, what's the purpose? Only normal threads? Want to add the ability of doing crows foot /open ends?

If you can double your budget you can get a 3/8 Warren Brown in a 1-25nm.
