Does there exist any heart rate monitor (wearable as a wrist watch, for exercise) that is compatible with Gentoo, or Linux in general?

I'd like at least a bare minimum of features, such as being able to copy logged data from the device, I don't expect every little feature that is supported by the Windows software to work, although if that is the case then great.

But in brief: What are the best supported heart rate monitors available? Brand? Models? Any experiences? I have tried to search for this, it appears it is not that easy to find a good reviews that test if linux-support (or even mentions linux support) works.

After a bit more searching I just came across this:

http://www.saring.de/sportstracker/index.html

Does anyone have experience with this? Is this the most mature application for this kind of thing, or is there something even better?

The problem with "SportsTracker" though appears to be that many of the models are outdated? E.g. for Polar, are there any new models supported, or will I have to resort to buying a used old one to get something that works?
