I only switched to a digital alti after 30 years with analog.  I first bought a Viso II, but quickly switched and found a used Neptune II.

The Skyer has some of the same negatives as the Viso/Ares.  The font is a very low aspect ratio, and uses the simpler, awful 7 segment type display. I find the Neptune/N3/Atlas display much easier to read because of the higher aspect ratio and rounded font. It is easy to dismiss the importance of this, but it is real.

Also, the Skyer and Viso/Ares show too many digits in freefall, Showing beyond the "hundreds" digit for feet is not useful, and becomes a distracting blur. Even when using meters, 2 digits is probably enough,I doubt a third digit is useful.
