Which bike computer for under $60 including shipping?

(Repost) Wrong subtopic

I'm looking to upgrade my el-cheapo $5 ebay bicycle computer to something better, preferably wireless.

The added functionalities that I'm looking for is cadence or heart rate monitor.
I've seen 2-3 options while doing some research. My max budget including shipping would be around $55-60.

These are some of the options I found so far...Anything you guys can recommend?

These 2 models are only wireless but no addons (cadence or heart rate)

The next two have some perks
This one has cadence

This one has heart rate monitor

Another option (Filzer $30 - Has cadence)

Any other options guys?

I have not had good luck with some of the lesser known brands.

For me when it comes to cycle computers I would shop brands first and then see how many of the features I could get.

Cateye is my brand of choice for extreme reliability, but I am sure there are others.

I had a Garmin 500 Edge Bike Computer with cadence and heartrate monitor. It was a lot more $$ than $60. But I recently sold it because I can get many of these functions from my iPhone. I would look into Cyclemeter iPhone app if you have an iPhone. You can add wireless cadence and heart rate monitor.
