yeah, got the ft40 (wanted the fit test... which I still haven't used, else I'd probably have settled on the 7) myself. Still breaking it in ^_^
I was curious so I put in my most recent file into the link provided below.
On a 39min workout the calc was off by 25calories;
My HRM said 236, the calc 261
On a previous 63min, 516cal (according to HRM) it overestimated by 23
Not bad, not bad at all, and probably a hell lot more accurate than just going by the machine's estimate. Still, I do have a Q. For an accurate average heart rate, you need to check it as often as possible; since treadmills, etc only check it while you're holding the bar (and the treadmills I've tried, at least, don't want you doing it while running)..
So, how accurate will your avg heart rate be based on the machine's samplings?
Anyone with a HRM and a non-syncing gym equipment feel like giving it a try (I really am curious)?
