I’m using a Garmin Forerunner 735 to capture my data and am very happy with it. That said, occasionally I’d like my power numbers a little more front and center. Not a fan of watch mounts for the bars. Would love something like a Garmin 25 if it would show power. Don’t need GPS or any other functions since it’s all captured by the 735. Any recommendations?

I have an old Wahoo RFLKT+ that was very light if you don't count the weight of your phone.

Garmin Fenix. Adds 0 to bike weight as it goes on the wrist! Works fine on the tri bike if you rotate it so you can see the display.

Otherwise a lezyne super gps is worth a look. There are 1001 models, you need one with ant+ or Bluetooth. There is a comparison table on dcrainmaker.

Of those, 10s power is the only one I use while riding, like ever. Do people watch TSS accumulate? I look at NP, TSS, and IF after the fact, of course, but during the ride they're too much of traiiling indicators and too hard to control to make aactive use of.

That's fair - but it'd be nice to see them instantly post ride, without having to upload to Training Peaks and then login (or open the app).

L/R balance is another power feature lacking on the 130, as is workouts.
It's ALL about the bike.
