and the strap units are cheap and very accurate. why bother going to a watch? what's the big deal?I took your advice and got one with a strap. But I think technology is going the way of strapless continuous heart rate monitor watches. It is here but expensive and inaccurate at this time.
It's ok, I can take this kind of bragging.The gf has really wanted one, the strap bothers her as she has large breasts and most every strap she has chafes when running. I won't pay the $199 for the Mio though.
(No, I'm not bragging about her large breasts, I prefer women with smaller breasts myself but I tough it out)
