No wires, no remote sensors with dead batteries, easy menu system, automatically synchs to my profile, and is a display for the awesome Garmin Varia radar tail light. I have always opted for simple computers, not big into tracking my numbers. Just make it simple. The EDGE 130 gives me simple, plus my basic stats are there automatically if I want to look them up, including elevation gain. Best computer (and tail light) I've had out of the last 5 or so. I wear the HR monitor about once a month to be sure I'm not dead (so far, so good). The 130 doesn't seem to mind.
