The reason why I asked is because my elliptical says distance in mikes, but I guess ill just track it as calories burned from my polar hrm watch. How accurate are those, I have the same model you have, and has a chest strap.

I've had my elliptical for over 5 years and I've never once thought to wonder about distance, hehe! I only worry about resistance and time spent on the machine...and then, of course, what my Polar FT4 says for calorie burn. I'm sorry I can't help you with the distance thing, but I was like "tracking miles on an elliptical?". I'll be curious what the answer is.

Okay feeling a little bummed about finding out elliptical miles dont equal real miles. Are elliptical machines a good workout? I workout out on mine 4 to 5x a week, at a current resistance of level 5, I do about 6 to 7 elliptical miles in 35 minutes, I have a polar f4t hrm watch that tracks my calories burned, heart rate and times. Im not a runner nor am I trying to compare them to running miles, I just want to get an idea of how to track the distance on them.
