Can anyone do a comparison between the CardioSport 2000 HRM VS Polar?

I am considering buying one.

I'v read that the transmitters are the same except that the CardioSport
transmitter has a replaceable battery. I have a Polar model and the
battery is getting weak. I hear you have to exchange it for a new one
(bummer). I think being able to change the battey is a plus.

Does anyone have any ideas on where I can purchase a CardioSport
transmitter and the cost of same? What does it cost to exchange a Polar
trnasmitter?

I have a 2000 and a accurex II. The only better polar feature is the
ability to turn off the beeper permenently. I suggest the 2000 is the
better buy.

Sympathy for your ailing monitor...
Polar Heart Monitors cost around $17 to replace the battery.
DO NOT TRY IT YOURSELF! The case is very difficult to put
back on (a mistake I have recently found out). Battery life
in the chest monitor only lasts about 2 years according to
my Polar Rep. and they will check this out for you for a
fee or for nothing if still under warrantee.  The watch
battery is good for at least this long, but easier to replace
cost wise.  Let me know how you come out with all this and
which monitor you stay with (Polar is the best so far for
the 3 monitors I've had for running or biking; I have
the accurex II).   Good luck,    Dave
