I went a completely different direction. My friends have recommended that I should get a heart rate monitor for cycling so I can better regulate my exertion. So I bought my first... digital watch. (ew, that feels dirty to say)

Garmin Instinct Solar. It doesn't have the full color display of the typical smart watch, but I also got it for $280. With the right light exposure and not using the pulse-oximeter feature too much, it theoretically never needs to be charged.
I love my Garmin watch. It's my everyday watch, and my fitness tracker.
