Question Polar HRM Watches for Weight Training

I like the idea of monitoring heart rate while doing either cardio or weight lifting to understand exactly how you are performing... Polar watches even add more fun with some features they have. However they have quite a lot of different models with different needs and i am little confused...

I am about to buy a FT80 which is mainly for weight lifting but also wondering if anyone uses this model or a different model and which features you use???

Any feedback is highly appriciated...

I use RS300X during weights training. The features that I use most are HR, calories and intervals (when doing 5x5 or 10x10 training). The only downside is that it doesn't show the time once I start the training mode. FT80 seems a bit fancy to me.

I use a Polar RS100, I like to track and monitor what I am doing from a heart rate perspective.

I do cardio and weight training. Downside, I don't like the chest strap, and I have worn it alot, seems like I just can't get used to it. I still wear it and use it, but would like to have one without a chest strap.

The RS100 is also pretty basic, stores 1 workout, so if I forget to record a workout the results are gone.

I run with a Garmin... The hrm is good tool to see how efficient your body is relative to amount of physical activity you are performing.
