If you do not have one , i think you might feel you want one because it looks cool , but ...see above !
I never used anything but the display key. I have no idea where the rumors come from about daily changing, the battery easily holds up for two weeks and more. Wireless charging makes it a none issue. In a silicone "jacket" it's very comfortable to carry and no need to open the app to precondition the car, check charging state, etc. Finally a key that tells you if you locked the car or not.

I use the standard spare. At least I can open the car with the blade inside if it fails.

Display key is a white elephant in my opinion.
I agree. Too big, worried the screen will get scratched in your pocket, no spare blade, battery anxiety, app does all the features much better!
