I estimate. for me the important thing is that i am moving, sweating, pushng myself, and having fun. I am not training for anything in specific, but i do get a good amount of activity in. even if i use a lower value, i still burn a fair amount of calories.

Sure thing! If you're gonna pick one up - go with a reliable brand. Polar and Timex are the best ones out there. I used a Polar Ft4 for a long while and really enjoyed it! I'm now using a BodyBugg and love that as well!

The best way to do this is to invest in a Heart Rate Monitor. Since everyone burns calories at a different rate based on age, weight, height, fitness level, etc - a heart rate monitor will be best for you to determine what you're individually burning. There's lots of brands out there, but if you get one - make sure it has a chest strap (this will be more accurate) I got a great Polar one at Best Buy for $90 and it was fabulous!

I notice that the fitness tracker does not have a lot of exercises outside of their own coaches, which is fine. I just wanted to know when you do dvd's like 30 Day Shred and Hip Hop Abs and others like these, how do you know how many calories you are burning? Thank you
