I added each of my kinect games under favorites in the fitness tracker. Then I enter the calories manually.
I use the calories from the game or just estimate based on what type of exercise I did. YSFE12 shows calories burned for each activity or workout, but I keep moving between each activity and so add some extra calories. I also list it all as cardio and I know that's not accurate, since there are strength/toning workouts in YSFE12. Or you can look thru the SP list of activities and find a similar activity and get the calorie estimate from that. But there is so much variety in some of the games, it is hard to figure. It gets a bit confusing? Some people use a HRM that shows calories burned.
Maybe someday, SP could work up a list of Kinect games/calories like they did with some of the Wii games.
For now, I just estimate and enter manually. I have decided to be more concerned with getting in the time exercising and mixing it up with the variety of exercises. But it does sometimes feel "incomplete" when I am trying to enter the info into my fitness tracker.
Anyone else have suggestions?
Have fun! And Welcome to the team!
