Also, with the cheaper heart rate monitors (~$45), you only have 1-2 buttons. It's very easy to accidentally delete the HR info before recording it b/c nothing gets saved. The ones closer to $100 will at least save your last data. They also usually come with nicer heart rate straps. My cheaper one came with a strap that was mostly made of some plastic material, while the more expensive one came with a softer material. I thought the ~$85 one (the one Joel recommends) that I paid for the nicer one was a worthy upgrade. I don't think that exact model is made anymore though.
