Which Garmin

My trusty Garmin 500 is on its way out and I need help deciding what to get next. Not being rude but please don't suggest Wahoo, Bryton etc as I am happy with Garmin.

I want to use navigation but can't decide between 530 and 830 - is the 830 touchscreen worth the extra expense?

Also, any views on Edge Explore? I haven't got a powermeter or cadence sensor so are the 530/830 not really worth the extra expense, or is the battery life of the Explore not as good?

TIA.

 

****UPDATE****

 

Thanks for all the advice I finally took the plunge and bought an 830 - managed to use my wife's NHS discount and got one for £260. Now to start plotting routes and downloading them😀
