I'm looking for a good heart rate monitor:
+ All of the monitors I've found require that you wear a strap across your chest. I'm an extremely obese guy and I don't think these will fit me (the one with my SmoothFitness treadmill doesn't).
+ I like lots of statistics and goals and toys and whizbang bells and whistles. I'm a geek - I can't help it. The more neat information I can track and play with, the more likely I'll feel motivated to keep at it.
+ I'm not a fan of wearing watches, so a monitor that can have the display mounted easily to the handlebars would be cool. At the same time, it woudl be nice if it could double as a watch or something portable (so I could put it on my bike when riding and wear it when doing something else). This isn't a huge issue though. I'd take a wrist-only solution if I had to.
+ I've seen multipurpose computers from Shimano and a few other companies that include the standard bike information (cadence, distance, speed, etc) but also incorporate heart rate readings. I already have a decent bike computer though (nothing expensive - under $60) so maybe I shouldn't look at an all-in-one componant?
+ Money is not a huge issue, but I'd still like to keep the price low if possible.
I've found that the Polar S410 is extremely well reviewed, but I can't find it for sale anywhere right now (though it is still listed at Polar's website). Is there a newer version that has replaced it? Should I consider a different Polar? Or a different HRM altogether?
Thanks for any advice/suggestions you can offer.
