Using a tune bot you do mute the head that you're not tuning, but you can get the pitch of the entire drum once both heads are set. That pitch will be different than the batter or reso head readings by themselves. I use one all the time.

Some guys use their ears, and some benefit from using a tuning aid.

As long as the drums sound good to the individual drummer use what ever it takes to get them there.
Amateurs practice until they get it right. Professionals practice until they can't get it wrong.
