I have the Zeal Transcend goggles and just tested them out for the first time last week in Aspen/Snowmass. The display is not distracting at all. The screen is below your line of sight, but when you hit a new top speed it blinks with the speed. If you feel comfortable with the situation and speed, you can look down to see what it is. If you need to just pay attention to your situation, you can wait until after skiing when you plug the goggles into your computer.
When you download the day's skiing data, the software overlays the runs you have skied over aerial photos of the mountain (it uses GPS location history, and Google maps) and then "plays" your skiing history for the day including your speed, the altitude, the temperature and amount of vertical drop as it imposes a colored line over the aerial photos. It plays like a music player, where you can watch real-time, speed it up or slow it down. I didn't originally expect to download the data and review it at the end of the day, but it is really cool to do so.
I bought some Zeal Eclipse polychromatic goggles last year, and the goggle lenses work really well. I used to always carry a dark lensed goggle and also a low-light goggle on days when snow was expected. I researched polychromatic lense goggles extensively to avoid this situation, and ultimately purchased both the Zeal and the Julbo products. I tested them both all last year and while the Julbo has a wider range of light transmission percentages, the Zeals were clear winners betwen the two. The Zeals allowed me to just keep the one goggle with me each day and not worry about the weather.
The only downside to the Zeals is the price!
