Bear in mind that "stair stepper" would be equivalent to going UP steps only. The down phase is unlikely to be challenging you, it's the up that's making your heart pound. So only record up time, not down time.

A,

The most accurate estimate of calories burned would be to wear a heart rate monitor. Otherwise, I'd use the "stair stepper" entry in the fitness tracker. It should get you in the ballpark.

Hope that helps,

I was looking at the exercise tracker and I can't figure out how to record my exercise. I work at an arena where I have lots and lots of steps to walk on my lunch break. 35 + steps on both sides of 12 sections.

So how do I record 210 steps at a medium pace, enough to get my heart going for 15 minutes (i am just starting you know)

The plan is to get to the point where I can do more for a longer period and faster. But I see nothing in the exercise tracker that allows me to track what I am doing.

Can anyone help me out here?

Thanks
