SG and Salinity are not quite the same. A SG reading of 1.026 @ 59 degrees is equivalent to 35ppt Salinity. An ATC refractometer will compensate for temperature.
On my refractometer those two measurements do line up. I'm a bit concerned that they don't in the linked refractometer, but the difference is probably not large enough to matter.
