Pedometer vs Heart Rate Monitor?

Friday, October 07, 2011

Hello Spark friends, I have a question? I just got my heart rate monitor and went running this morning. I also had my pedometer attached to me. When I got home my pedometer said I burned 314 calories and my heart rate moinitor said I burned 572 calories. Which one would be the most accurate? Can anyone shed some light? Thanks a bunch!! emoticon

    Do both of them have you enter weight? The one that measures accurately for your age, weight, and heart rate would be the one I use. I just got a new pedometer and heart rate monitor in one, so no more guessing.

    Yes it has the chest strap.

    If your heart rate monitor has the chest strap, (close to your heart) I would go by that one...but I'm no expert!
