Yep, Unident has it right. I personally have BodyMedia and love it. I am able to link it to my SP account and I can send my nutrition to it. It keeps track of my total calories burned, activity minutes (moderate and vigorous), sleep, sleep quality, and steps. I love it. I am careful not to track its activity minutes here on SP; I delete it because I only track intentional exercise that I have sustained for at least 10 minutes.
There are wearable devices that you wear all day that can tell you your calorie burn.
But it's not correlated with heart reate. Heart rate correlates to calorie burn only for cardiovascular exercise. For day to day movement, there is no correlation with HR. It's movement that is important.
I believe Fit Bit and Body Bugg are two of the biggest names in daily monitoring devices.

Is there a wearable device that will continuously monitor heart rate, and using that collected data display the calories burned to that point in the day ?? I would like to know during the day that I may need to increase my activity to meet my goal.
