The ergometer can be added to the fitness tracker manually. Go to "fitness tracker" and underneath the "Search" button is a link for adding your own exercises. Click it and enter the min on the ergometer. Then enter the calories burned which are approx 3-4 calories per min. Use 3 if yours was a casual effort and / or if you are a smaller person and estimate 4 if you went all out and / or are a larger person. Hope this helps.

I really wish that an ergometer was in your fitness tracker.....
I have a c5-6 spinal cord injury and have a Colorado Sport Cycle made by http://www.randscot.com. It is a little pricey, but the overall benefit is well worth it. With out it I would get in very little cardio.
The question for me is, how would you include the ergometer in your fitness log? It doesn't seem to be one of the options.

The gym I just joined has one, and at first I never thought I would use it. I used it today and I really liked it. I don't have any physical limitations other than being in really bad shape. Today, I was able to get in 60 minutes of cardio. I used the treadmill, elliptical and stationary bike for about 15 minutes each. Between these activities, I would use the arm ergometer to keep my heartrate up and let my fat little legs rest. It really worked out well for me!
