As a rough guide, most people burn between 6 and 10 calories per minute of exercise. 6 calories per minute for moderate exercise (from what you describe, it sounds like you were working out in this range), and 10 per minute would be more vigorous.

Thanks ,,,I didn't think it was right ...I will look into a monitor ...but like they say every step counts ...I wear the pedomitor because I haven't been able to work out ...so now that I am getting back into it ...it gives me motivation to keep moving ..
I have a desk job so I make it a point to get up every 30 min,.

Hi, Samjul !

A pedometer is not designed to be worn during that type of activity. It's designed for counting steps. Also, any caloric burn calculated when walking is still a rough estimate. So, take any reading with a grain of salt.

If you want a rough idea of calories burned during a workout, you need an HRM, heart rate monitor. While not exact either, their margin of error isn't as high as a pedometer.

So, no a 35 calorie burn would not be accurate. You can use the Spark fitness tracker for an estimated calorie burn for your 30 minute workout.

Hi All
I have a pedomitor that I wear everyday ...but this morning I had it on when I did my 30 min low impact cardio workout so 10 min on stationary bike and the rest walking ....but it says I only burned 35 cals can this be right

also when I input the steps taken today does that get factored into my calories
