REI has a generous return policy.
Sounds like the 130 is not going to work for me.

I would like the computer to replace my watch for recording and displaying in real time. Currently I have no need for maps. I either know where I am going or just use my phone.
It's kind of pain to see my watch when I am going fast and eyes start water up. With your hands on the drop bar or hoods you can not see the watch at all.


You probably could have passed me
if you walked fast. Runner/jogger would have crushed me up this hill.

Here it was easy to see because I was in first gear going up a hill and my hands are on the flat part of the handle bar, not sure what you call it.
