I'm not sure this will help, but here are some info from SP on the fat burning zone, which is what I think your HRM is talking about:

I don't pay a lot of attention to the "fat %" of calories burned but rather the total calories burned. The theory is that more of the calories you burn are from fat (rather than glucose) when you work out at a lower intensity than a higher intensity, but overall you'll burn more calories total working out at a higher intensity. Hope that helps a little; I'd do some searching on the site for your particular HRM to see what those numbers really mean.

So on the HRM, after your workout it gives you a cal. fat % is that number good to be high or lower? Like today with a very light exercise i had a 59%.
