10 sweat points = 1 calories seems more accurate

I have no idea how to calculate that. I just input the number of dance minutes into the Fitness Tracker under Dancing.

First night on JD2 I got 3088 sweat points, not sure how to calculate that into calories, but the important thing is I had a blast and I was sweating and my heart rate was up! :)

I just got JD2 and cant wait to do it tonight! I see how you figure calories burned but how do you track it in sparkpeople? I track all of my fitness. Should I track it as dancing or light aerobics?

Hi all! I'm new to everything on this site and I just want to say how thrilled I am to have found this. You all seem like such a great support team. My 4 yr old got Just Dance 2 for his B'day. Of course I had a helping hand in the decision to get this for him, but he loves to dance just as much as I do. The two of us play this all the time. I discovered the just sweat option today and decided to try out the tough challenge. I think it is 12,000 for the week. This is my first day starting it and I've got 5,308 for the day. Hopefully I'm well on my way to losing some weight and having a great time while doing it.

I danced away 2446 sweat points the other day and when I calculated it out it was 576cal, I wasnt sure if the calculation was correct. I have surfed around the net and a few people are using (divide by 4.2). So I dont know how correct it is. But for now I will log it. I know I was sweating and laughing and having a good old time with JD2.

Yay! I have found fellow Just dance 2 friends! I am in love with it! I started doing 45 min a day around December because it was just so fun! It has got me started again on my fitness journey. I do the intense program every week mixed with a little walking and a bit of strength training. In a little over a month it has totally changed my body. It is true what they say about finding an exercise you love helping you stick to the program! Just Dance 2 you have saved the day!! Welp speaking of exercising I better get to it. emoticon

Hello Everyone! I'm glad that I found this team. I've been doing JD2 for a few weeks and this is good motivation for me. I think I will get a HRM since I've been looking for a way to track the calories burned.

I googled this and found 2 different things,

10 sweat points equal 1 calorie
4.2 sweat points equal 1 calorie
Not sure which one is correct.

I used my HRM. Yesterday I did more fast songs and burned 250 calories in 33 min. Today I did some slower and burn 217 in 30 min.

Can someone clarify......I don't think the "sweat points" equal calories...?! I know we're working hard, but that would be waaaay more calories than we take in during a week!

Does anyone have a ballpark figure for calories burned during a 30 minute session of JD2? I know it depends on our weight, and intensity level, etc... I have been using the "fast dancing" on Spark to enter that exercise.

Thanks!

Not sure if anyone else has seen this, but I've seen several places that 4.2 sweatpoints = 1 calorie burned. I earned a little over 2100 sweatpoints today and burned 500 calories!! :)

My daughter and I are having so much fun with JD2! I'll be by myself when she heads back to college. Someone mentioned using a heart monitor to track the calories. Can anyone recommend a good heart monitor or what I should look for when buying one?

43 mins of play time in JD2, that is 6 songs!!! I had especially fun with "Sympathy with a devil" by the Stones... (I usually do 6 songs a day...)

Doing the Intense program now because of the fact that I met my quota for the Tough Program... :)

Hey everyone! I'm new and just getting to this subject first. My kids got JD2 for Christmas and it's SO fun. I did try the first one and danced for about 2 hrs once and was sweating like crazy so I was begging them to get JD2 and ends up that their dad got it for them. I was so excited! I've really been into working out with DVD's lately and I've only danced to 2 songs so far. I didn't even realize they had a sweat section so now I'm all excited to really give it a go! Woo hoo! I'll keep you posted on how I do and post my scores:)-Jennifer

I just purchased the original Just Dance yesterday. I didn't want to jump into 2 until I knew what I was dealing with..LOL

So far fun, but sounds like the 2nd version works better for exercise reasons.

I'm loving it! I used it as a warm up to my run this morning and just couldn't stop playing. lol There are so many songs. I have played about 3-4 hours and still haven't played all the songs. So far they are A LOT of fun. I think the fun factor is that the songs get you moving a lot more. Yes, get those feet ready to bogey.

Hi all, I just picked up Just Dance 2 today; that is why I just joined the group. I had Just Dance, but ended up selling it and letting DDR keep me busy.

So far I really like it. More menu options, etc. They took a couple of things away (as far as I can tell), such as: no hitting random song in Just Sweat Mode, no stats on the main page.

But, they added a lot more in. The Just Sweat Mode is kind of neat because it keeps you focused on how much you are working. It gives you a target and you shoot for it. I like the new scoring system. You may get lower scores than the first game, but at least it is fair. The dances all seem to be faster. Even the slowest song is faster than JD1's slowest. Yes, I'm talking to you Mash Potato. lol

One thing I was kind of let down about was there is no calorie counter. Again, as far as I can see. I posted on JD2's facebook page and I'll try to let you all know if I get a response. Even an online calorie converter that will tell us how many calories each sweat point is worth.

Oh, speaking of sweat points...keep moving, even if you aren't prompted to move in the game. I noticed the sweat meter still counts as you move.

Thanks for your review of Just Dance 2! I am so excited to get it, have been counting down until it comes out. Unfortunately, I will probably wait and give it as a Christmas gift to one of my sons (who both love to do Just Dance with me). Have fun!

Hi everyone! As much as I love Just Dance I had to get the sequel Just Dance 2 today. I have to say I love it even more than the original. It's more intense which leads to more calories burned.

I love the Just Sweat mode which tracks your sweat points for the day and assigns a goal for the day and week based on the program intensity chosen by the player. I chose the Intense Program which consists of 6 songs per day. The goals are 2000 sweat points per day and 14,000 in 7 days.

Today I earned 2334 points and I sure was sweating.

If you have the game join me and just sweat off the pounds and post your daily scores.
