Also, the standard convention in counting calories is to include your underlying metabolism as well as what you burn through activity. Most people burn around 60-90 calories per hour through their metabolism.
This is technically a double count, as typically metabolism is counted elsewhere. This double count is pretty insignificant for short intense exercise, but for long duration activities (such as wearing it all day), this can lead to a pretty significant distortion.
