Agreed about heart rate monitor. I LOOOOOOVE mine.

These are all estimates, and I would go with the smaller of the two numbers so that you're not overestimating. I would also suggest a heart rate monitor. While it is just another estimate, I feel it's far more accurate than machines and online calculators.

This is because the machine is calibrated with a certain measurement and weight and height, whereas yours might be different. If you're wearing a heart rate monitor to track calories burnt, it may also indicate differences because it's more accurately tallying based on the amount of work you're putting into the exercise.

I have a question....

When I'm at the gym and using the treadmill or elliptical machine, it tells me how many calories I have burned. Yet when I put in my workout into my fitness tracker, it provides me with a higher calorie burned number. Anyone know which is more correct and why there's a fluctuation in the 2?
