I just received mine yesterday. I got the armband with display. I was thinking of doing like you suggested, but then I saw that there is a money back guarantee for something like 30 days so I decided to get both, plus the year subscription so each month is cheaper. I was taking advantage of a great sale, too (not sure if there still is one, though).
