Heart Monitor advice

My wife and I have joined a gym and signed up for personal training in an effort to reduce the amount of me in the world. The trainer keeps pushing me to get a heart rate monitor that allows for multiple level work-outs. Ie. heartbeat at xx for x seconds -> xx+x for x seconds -> XX+XXX for x seconds and will prompt you to speed up or slow down.

He keeps pushing me to get the Polar FT80 as I'm starting to do a lot of lifting and moderate cardio and my wife to get the RS400.

These things are $350 (250 online) and $250 (219) respectively. Is it worth it to spend this much on a monitor? Or is there a cheaper way to approach this? Any ideas?

Edit: Damnit. Just caught that I misspelled advice in the topic.

I would check out the Polar F6, it does everything I need and tracks my workouts great. It's not as expensive, http://www.amazon.com/Polar-Heart-Mo...5010975&sr=8-1

It's $105 on amazon but if you go on ebay there is a store in Utah that sells them for $75 which is where I got mine. If it fits what you want from a watch then go for it, I have it and I don't have any complaints.
