I got the runner's Edge 305 since I already had a cadence meter, I have a mapping GPS, and price was $160 at amazon. I really mainly wanted the HRM.
I read that when chest transducer batt dies on a Polar, you have to send it back and it reportedly costs $50. I ride daily for 4 hours, which could run a battery down ever 9-12 months, so when I read that Garmin's HRM is reliable (mine has never given me a "crazy" reading in first 3 mos, not even a momentary one) and uses a $2 watch batt, I got it. As for sat tracking, it locks them in about 10-15 seconds from a cold start
