Mine cost $400 but came with all the extras.
The breyton is 129 + 60 speed and cadence sensor, and heart rate sensor is another 50-60, so it comes to about 240-250

The wahoo bolt is about 400 including speed, cadence and hr sensor.

I got a very nice-looking Garmin 520 after the mounting bracket on my 420 broke. It worked exactly once. After that it would not download or connect via bluetooth. Given the horror stories about customer service problems and getting stuff like this fixed, I just wrote it off as a bad investment and got a cheaper alternative.

I used an iPod before I got an iPhone. It just worked. I have an iPhone now and it, too, just works. I am not an Apple fan, but their things work for me.

Garmin is similar. I have a Garmin fish finder/char plotter, an RV GPS unit, and a Garmin Edge 830. They all work well. That being said, if I was not invested in the Garmin universe I probably would check out Wahoo.
