    Wrist HR monitor without chest strap?

    I'm looking into buying a HR monitor, I've seen ones on EBay without the chest strap that just take the pulse from the wrist, also saw them at wal mart.. are these any less accurate than say a Polar one with a chest strap?

    Well i used to work in a shop that sells the polar ones, and i have a polar HR monitor so im going to be a bit biased. From what i understand the wrist watch only types are less accurate. But then it was 5 years ago that i worked there. In the end whats the price difference and how much do you want to pay? I know my polar worked perfectly and after a min or two i would forget the strap was there.
