Best Heart Rate Moitor?

Hey All ~

I am planning to invest in a heart rate monitor and would like feedback from others as to what you have purchased:

* What HRM did you purchase and were you happy with the purchase?
* What do you like best about your particular HRM?
* What do you like least or would like to change about your HRM?
* If you were re-purchase, what advice would you give and/or what HRM would you purchase next time?

Thanks ... I really value all of your collective experiences and input.

P.S. My goal is weight loss and I am very good about tracking my food and exercise daily so I'd like to choose a HRM that will help me more accurately track my level of physical intensity and calorie burn. No Smart Phone. I do all my logging, etc. through my PC.
