I have a bit of a dilemma.
I have a Polar FT4F HRM and can do a Jazzercise workout and it says I burned 201 calories for a 45 minute Jazzercise workoutÖ
I had a Timex Personal Trainer HRM and can do a Leslie Sansone 45 minute walk and it says Iíve burned 350 (or more) caloriesÖ(it was great AND free Ė got with a gift certificate!)
The Jazzercise is higher energy/impact than the Leslie Walk.
The Polar HRM has my Age and Weight stats, my Timex had my weight. Timex fell very ill so under the advice of my doctor, he suggested Polar brand.
Which accuracy do I trust?
I need (read: MUST) lose at least 80 lbs to be healthy. Iím over 200 lbs and I canít fathom me doing a Jazzercise only burned 201 kCal??? I havenít yet tried the Zumba yet with the Polar but Iím not too sure Iím confident it will give me an accurate reading, and my electrodes are very wet on both HRM when I put them on.
Any suggestions on a more accurate HRM? I'm willing to return and exchange.

Rather than aiming for being perfect, just aim to be little bit better today than you were yesterday.
