I was thinking about buying one of those heart monitors that track your calories too. I did a ton of reading on different brands and almost every review said that it was hard to tell how accurate they are. I think they are expensive for not being 100% on the nose accurate, so I skipped buying one and use the Spark Tracker.

I'm not to sure I know the machines at the gym you can plug in your age & weight I don't trust a machine that I can not enter that info in I usually always go with spark people fitness tracker and there are lots of variables I think mostly its guess work of how many calories we really burned

I was talking to a woman at the gym tonight, and began wondering... does anyone know how accurate the "calories burned" number is on the cardio machines, like the Elliptical or AMT, vs a calorie counter that you wear? Just curious... I don't want to think I burned 565 cals tonight like the machine said when I really only maybe burned 400, or vice versa?
