Is there any difference between BRANDS of HR monitors?(1 post)

Is there any difference between BRANDS of HR monitors?floatch

I'm considering buying a HR monitor, and it's pretty much down to the Axiom HR300 and the Polar A3. They both cost 79.99 at performance, but the one is their house brand. The Axiom has a few better features, but I wonder if it's as reputable a monitor as Polar.
Is there anything I need to know before buying one? Are they pretty m6uch the same, or should I stick to Polar for their longevity?
By the way, I'm interested in the "out of zone alarm" and "time spent in target zone" functions mostly. Anything else I really need? Thanks!
