Event Monitors These Days...??

I had one about 5-6 years ago. It was a total pain in the butt. Cumbersome wires and tape all over my torso. The I would have to call at the end of each tape and put the phone up to the machine. It was weird.

I am getting one this thursday and since it is a 30 day thing, I will have to wear it (or will I? can I skip an evening here and there??) to Christmas parties/events when I am suppose to be dressed up. What a pain.

Curious if anyone knows if these monitors have improved over the past 5 years...???
