    HRM Recommendations?

    I've been using a Polar S210 for several years and it seems to have died. A new battery does nothing, so I need to get a new one. The 210 is no longer made.

    Any recommendations?

    I really like the exercise sets the 210 had, and the recall of that last several workouts. Any opinions on current Polar HRMs? In a recent email exchange with Polar support, it looks like I'm eligible for their trade-up program (get a new model for 25% off or so).

    Another path is considering the Garmin Edge units, with which I'm not familiar. I currently ride with a GPS in the pack to record mileage (etc), and haven't used a regular bike computer in several years. What are the must-have features of the Edge series?

    I opted to stick with a Polar, specifically the RS200. Since I didn't want cycling features, but I did want the exercise sets, this was the closest unit to the S210. With the trade-up program, I got it for $112, vs. about $140 at most retail spots.

    It's a good unit if you track cycling information in other ways.
