HRM-Cardiosport 2000

I know that Polar HRMs are the most widely recommended, but does
anyone have first-hand knowledge of the Cardiosport 2000? It appears
to be comparable to the Polar Edge or Accurex, but for $30-$50 less.

Any advice one way or the other?

Polar knows this because their older models had this problem. Undo the
snaps, and put a little vaseline in there to help keep out the sweat. Or
use silicone to seal the area from getting sweat in there.
