Heart Rate Monitor recs?

Any recommendations for a heart rate monitor? I have an iphone 4s and have several apps that I can use to track my speed/route etc but nothing that will help with counting the burned calories. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

I'm personaly thinking of getting the Wahoo HR sensor along with the Speed/Cadence Sensor they the reviews suggest they work great together and their power consumption on the iPhones is exceptable. Other then that Polar seems to be the norm.

The options are many Iv'e had good luck with the polar brand over the years and last year my family picked up a Bowflex HRM from Big 5 for 40.00 and it has worked great, just make sure you pick one with the chest strap they seem to work much better than the ones w/o nashbar was clearing out a Vdo Bike computer with HRM for 50.00 (250.00 orig) over the Memorial day weekend maybe they will repeat for July 4th.
