Hi.
I've just bought a secondhand Polar CS200.
It doesn't have the strap / pick up in the middle of the strap.

What should I buy to replace it?

you can buy a new strap from different Polar suppliers, they have 2 or 3 strap models for you to choose one,

I'm in the same boat. I have a model S210 Polar and misplaced my transmitter & strap. A replacement costs about $40, I believe. It would be neat to upgrade and get a unit that would download my workouts to my home computer. I hesitate because of the ordeal of punching in all my rides and zones and other data.

My home computer is a Macintosh, and I don't even know if a newer Polar would feed into that. It would sure automate things not to have to record all the data.

Do they sell ones with replaceable batteries?

yes that's the one i use, the battery is inside the unit located in the middle of the textile-like strap, you take out that unit after every ride, then rinse the strap with water and dry it with a towel, all this takes 10 seconds of your time and will make the strap + unit last for years.
