Default Heart rate monitor recommendations anyone?

I am looking to purchase a heart rate monitor watch... I've looked online and most are pretty pricey. Can anyone recommend a quality brand/style that is in my budget?? I want to spend $30 or less.
I would like it to have the following features:
Water resistant
Heart Rate Monitor
Calories Burne
Stop watch/timer

Thank you all!

The "calories burned" part is going to be harder to get in your budget. Most major brands have proprietary formulas to determine calories burned, so that can throw a wrench in the mix. However, there are several options available on EBay in that price range that calculate calories burned...they aren't major brand names, so I can't offer a specific recommendation, but it might be a place to start.

You can watch sporting goods store ads for sales on the Polar series monitors...they are good quality and I sometimes see them as low as 50 dollars or so.

I just got one at Target a few weeks ago that was 29.95. I don't have the brand (I'm at work) but it was with all the work out stuff and it had the features mentioned...
