Wiggle had the black and red version with cadence and premium heart rate strap for £200, or £194 if you're a British Cycling member.

I got one this week. Was roughly the same price as the version with the standard strap.

I got mine for £172 from CRC just before Christmas with one of their discount codes. Can still be had for £190 using their most recent code.

Comes with the speed/cadence sensor, 2 mounts, and the regular HRM strap.

Slight hijack, what's the difference between the regular HRM and the premium one?

Premium strap is made from soft material and therefore likely to more comfortable.

I got mine from Evans. The black/white one with HRM and cadence is currently £187.49, and you can save a few quid if you use Quidco or TopCashback. It's supposed to come with the standard heart-rate strap, but mine actually came with the premium one, which was a nice surprise!
