Which follow focus system is better?

I was thinking of getting the Zhiyun Crane and getting a follow focus system for it. However, as I understand it, it comes with two types of follow focus systems.

One is one that actually turns the focus ring of the lens.

The second kind plugs into the camera electronically and pulls the focus by tapping into the cameras electronic autofocusing control.

But is one type better or more reliable than the other when it comes to focus pulling?
