General chatter - metabolic/heart rate/calorie burn trackers
12-10-2010, 11:22 AM
Its that time of the year where my family are starting to ask me what I want for Christmas. *No FOOD please* ;):p:p
I have heard that there are various calorie burn monitors/ metabolic trackers and heart rate monitors all rolled into one.
My question is what do you use and what do you recommend? so that I can put it on my Christmas list..
Thanks in advance

Well I have a Gowearfit that I wear- but it's not a heart rate monitor. I wear it pretty much 24/7 (unless I'm showering) and it tells me how many calories I've burned during the day and how much I've slept, etc. It's called a bodymedia fit now.
I also have a polar F11 heart rate monitor and it's great- I wear it only when I work out and I love it- shows me how many calories I've burned in my workout and how "fit" I am.

I just got a Gowear FIT and LOVE it! The funny thing is that I also have a Polar F11 HRM and it's great too, but my battery died, so I need to send it back to Polar for a visit.
However, truth is, I really like the Gowear FIT more right now. Wearing a chestband is not that comfy to me. And the Gowear FIT/Bodymedia FIT device I can wear all day.

I put Gowear fit on my list for Christmas. :carrot:
I am also thinking of asking people for those wonderful calorie count indexes of all the foods out there. I have one called Food Counts by Corrine Netzer, but I'd like more for comparisons, rather than having to constantly get to a computer and look up calorie counts on the net.
