I use a scosche and love it, so was a bit disappointed to hear Garmin have gone for the Mio. Having said that it may work wonderfully. I think a lot of the early Mio problems were down to a dodgy antenna?? I purchased the scosche whilst waiting for Garmin/Polar to catch up on the optical side of things before upgrading my current watch. I definitely find it more comfy than a chest strap, but then I think due to having to wear a pretty heavy duty sports bra (not a problem the gentleman of this forum may have), I probably can't wear the chest strap in the most comfortable place.
I think I'll be keeping my scosche for now, but it is my birthday in August, so may be tempted to see how generous husband is feeling. I suspect Polar will come up with something soon, and as DC says this is probably the beginning of it appearing in many Garmin devices.
