I am new at this whole thing.
I have the 712 and a Victron MPPT controller. The 712 will give you much more granular data and will also give you limited history on your batteries.
There is a new version coming out next month that does not have the internal gauge and uses BT only. Mine has been in for well over a year and I never use the gauge as I can see so much information and all at one time so if I was starting again today I'd buy the version with the shunt only.
All in all it is a very good investment and I highly recommend one or the other.
