CAVEAT: I am trialing Studiometry, which I do not know nearl as well as the (bug ridden and wanting iBiz and Billings). I don't know this application very well yet, so these feature remarks are to be taken "with a grain of salt" at this stage.

My biggest concern so far about Studiometry is accessing the time sheeting data; the one clear strength of Billings is that I can connect to the SQLite3 data (as .bex backup file) and perform and SQL I like to extract data, anytime, forever.

Not as far as I can tell. And there does not seem to be any export of time data, only of computed financials.

The make this one easy. Drag n' Drop local files onto a files pane. Well done.

Studiometry Hyperlink job event to external resource as URL

AFAIK one can't link to a remote URL for a web site page, (howevever one can drag files onto a pane to create convenient file links to local files).

Studiometry Newly created timer knows project/client through context or selection
0
failed

This one really bugs me. Even when a project within a client is selected (and thus a context for the client is available) the new timer dialog asks me to choose the client, offering All Clients by default (which of course could corrupt timesheeting data easily if not changed). This is really annoying when creating lots of timers.
