Best Triathlon Computer

So I've just recently gotten into the triathlon scene and am now looking for the ultimate triathlon heart rate monitor/cycling computer/running monitor. Right now I use a Garmin Edge 305 on my bike and a polar F11 for monitoring my heart rate while running. I am a pretty big techy, so I'm looking for the end all solution. Ideally, I would like something that can be used through all three sports. The Garmin Forerunner 305 and 405 almost fits the bill, but they can not be used while swimming. I've also looked at most of the polar products, and havent found anything thats quite right either. Any suggestions?

I dont have an answer to your question and I'm not a tri athlete (yet!) but when I was looking for a computer w/HRM I didnt see anything out there that could be used while swimming. I bought a Forerunner 305 since i wanted an integrated unit that I could use for both biking and running.

There's got to be a pretty sizeable market for triathletes and I'm surprised there isnt a product for them. Or did you find one?

Bumping this up, as I am starting to research HRMs and definitely will want to find one that I can swim with. Any luck finding one for this?
