SMASH637: A few years ago, I had a Polar RS200sd. It received good reviews, and I liked it up until I had to put in a new battery. It allows the consumer to replace batteries instead of having to send it in or take it to a shop that services Polar HRM. Once, I put in a new battery and then did my Settings, I found that they "locked" and I could make no changes. So I tried a different battery -- same problem. I read on-line on one site that my mistake was that I should not have replaced the battery myself, but should have sent it in. However, I read several posts on other sites by people who sent their Polar RS200 or RS200sd in and had the exact same problem when they got them back. Then not too much later, my Polar just basically went haywire.
I think my experience was probably the exception, based on all the reviews I have read; but for as much as my Polar cost, I doubt I would buy one again.
One thing I did find out is that the chest strap that came with my Polar will work with the module on my AirDyne, some of the time, at least.
