I have no trouble reading it when using my reading glasses. I guess if I made the display brighter I might be able to read it without the reading glasses, but it would eat more battery power. I guess I am old. When most people get over 45 or so even those who never used glasses before start needing to use reading glasses.

I hate the green color in those displays. With the Clip+ I am stuck with the green display, however with the Clip Zip I can easily avoid it. Imo white letters on a black background is easiest to read. The runner theme is also supposed to use the least amount of energy on the Clip Zip.
It's not the glasses factor that makes it unreadable for me when I am being active, it's the player moving about. Even if I am holding it in my hand, with each step taken the movement is enough to not quite let me read it. If I stop for a quick second, then I can read it, so in that case I figure might as well use the other themes with more information on them.

As far as the amount of energy used, with my backlight setting of 15 seconds, I'm sure there's very little difference between that theme and what I use.
