I'm looking for a biofeedback machine that would ideally tell me my temperature and heart rate. I'd pay more for something super amazing but otherwise would prefer to save as much money as possible. Has anybody tried any models they've liked? How do they stand up over time?

It depends on what you are trying to achieve through biofeedback - I'd suggest you look at HeartMath if you are interested in heart rate - they have done some very advanced research on the heart and it's relationship to our well-being and have developed some products as a result - http://www.heartmath.com/technology-products/product-finder.html.

Re. temperature again it depends on why you want to monitor this - at the simplest level an ear thermometer will give you an accurate reading.

HeartMath is scummy pseudoscience that is about as legitimate as the Scientologists' E-meter. It's marketing optimized to separate you from your money, based on long-discredited notions of how the heart works and the old chestnut that the heart is "the emotional center of the body."
