Does anybody know the formula to figure it if you weigh more?

Water-walking or jogging burns 563 calories per hour if you weigh 155 pounds, and 654 calories an hour if you weigh 180 pounds. Water-running burns 11.5 calories per minute in comparison with running on land, which burns about 8 calories per minute, according to The Sunday Times.

do you estimate the calories though. How do you track it on the work out tracker?

I love water walking! I try to change it up a bit by doing exagerated movements with my legs. I try to mimic the Nutcracker match while in the water, and it gives me a heck of a workout! I also stand in the water and do jumping jacks.
After every 10 laps, I hold on to the side of the pool, and kick my legs as fast as I can for 60 seconds
The calorie burn sounds about right at 400 (ish) but I think for me, that is about 45 mins to an hours worth.

I think somewhere between 400-450 calories for a half hour for your weight. We are very close in weight and I just found an article and tried to break it down for my weight.
Does anyone know how many calories are burned by walking in a pool? The pool is 3.5 feet deep, dipping to 4 feet in the middle. I walk forward and backward, using a kids' kickboard for balance (I just rest my hands on it in front of me, since I have very poor balance.). I tried jogging in the pool, but can't keep my balance and my feet keep going out from under me, so I guess walking will have to do. I can't find any info on calories burned except deep water jogging and that certainly is not helpful to me.
