Kinect Calories and Heart Rate Rate monitors
Thursday, March 03, 2011
Ok - so here's the deal. I did Michelle Bridges (on YourShape Fitness Evolved for the Kinect) program today for 14 minutes. The game says that was good for 72 calories. I also did the Platinum boxing - entire class. Fitness Evolved registered that at 77 calories. That's just barely 149 calories.
However, yesterday, I got my new Polar F6 Heart Rate monitor (with the chest strap) in the mail. I got to try it today for the first time. It registered the session at 260 calories - that's more than a 100 calorie difference!
Does anyone know how accurate these heart rate monitors are?
