Doubt if should call .item()

I am doing an unittest, and was wondering wether to use .item() or not. Both give the same result, so my question is it correct If I do it the 1-way? (more clean to me)

import unittest
import torch

class TestTensor(unittest.TestCase):
    def test_values(self):
        x = torch.arange(1, 10) > 8
        self.assertTrue(x.any())  # 1-way
        self.assertTrue(x.any().item())  # 2-way
