Thanks Coach Nancy I have run a calculation with Spark for comparison and it shows 440 calories. I am wondering if my weight status, Obese, and my lack of conditioning will account for more calories burned. I am wondering if Spark is considering a persons condition and how they achieve an average? Once I get into better condition I would hope there would not be as much disparity in the readings.
In reading articles about calories burn, in my condition and body mass, should burn more calories than if I was in better condition. But my HRM comparred to Spark is still 557 calories difference. The confusing part is my HRM and the treadmill monitor are very close. However my HRM is a constant read where the treadmill monitor reading is taken maybe 4 times in a 30 min period.
I feel the calories burned is very important to my calorie range calculation. I want to make sure I am eating enough to fuel my workouts but not overdo calorie intake..
