Sticky... having the hrm option available is very handy. You don't have to use it all the time, or ever.
With the other models without, you can't add the feature in after.
so 205 (without) /305/405 or 405cx would be good for you. 210 as well.. though its more expensive than these models.
as I said above, 405cx is cheaper than 405 and has everything you need. or go for a 305.
I'm still a fan of the 305. Some great deals around. You don't have to wear the HR strap, but it's there if you want the data. There is more data recorded than most mortals can comprehend and the display is clear even for a going-blind-through-age-middle-aged-fart like me! and the battery life is great (8 hours +) so there is no need to rush your runs. You can also use it on a bike if you fancy dipping your toe into multisport.
I know it's not the latest bling, but there are plenty of us still sporting them at running events.
and as for the "chunky" label. i don't notice it and I've got pretty skinny wrists....
