I set the Fitbit to record my exercise tonight: I did Supreme 90's Tabata inferno: The fitbit showed 229 for the calorie burn, my Polar HRM showed 370. That was the difference for tonight.

There are a lot of other links as well. I just did a search for "how to find your resting heart rate."

I have a heart rate monitor I have used on my hikes. Currently needs a new battery, so of late I use my fingers, and how my heart is beating on a walk or hike.

When I remember (and that hasn't been all that often here lately), I set the Fitbit to record an activity. Then I compare the cal burn from the Fitbit to the HRM, If it's a high motion activity, they are very close, however, when it's something like weight lifting, then the HRM shows a larger calorie burn.

In 2010, a new formula for figuring women's Target Heart rate: Here's a link to a bit about it: www.racedaynutrition.com/?p=972
and here's a link to find your own Target Heart rate (it shows several different results using various formulas): www.racedaynutrition.com/HeartRate.a

I don't use my HRM all the time. I usually use it when doing workout videos as I feel like it gives me a better read on actual calories burned then. But, the Fitbit is on me all the time.

I looked it up on Wikipedia because I have been told different things. the one you come closest to is the Target Heart Rate:

(220-age)* 0.65 for low intensity
(220-age)* 0.85 for high intensity.

How many here use a heart rate monitor? along with the FitBit? If so, is the formula

220 - Age times 60% lowest aerobic heart rate to or time 80% for the highest heart rate?
