Also, remember that cardio machines tend to inflate calories burned compared to the actual number. A HRM will give you the best estimate.

I think the tracker has options for the treadmill incline at 5%, 10% and 15%. Each 1% incline increases the calorie burn by ROUGHLY 10%, so even using the 5% option would be overestimating your calories by 10%.

If it were me, rather than inflating the minutes, I would click on the link in the fitness tracker to Enter Exercise Manually, name it "Treadmill @ 4%", and then enter the actual minutes and calories.

Just got a new treadmill, so I have just started working out, Is there a way to record the incline on my Fitness? I know I burned 300 calories at 3.0 mph and 4% incline, but to get the tracker to say 300 calories, I had to say that I was on the treadmill for 60 minutes, and I know I wasn't on it that long. Thanks.
