Default Question re figuring calories burned

Hi

I was looking for a little input on this question...what do you consider most reliable? (1) The estimates given on sites like fitday and mydailyplate (which take into acct current weight); (2) the calories burned total on a heart rate monitor like Polar; (3) the calories burned total from cardio machines (I think these are generally poor)

FYI, the Polar amounts for me are sometimes higher (when I exercise outside in warm weather), and sometimes lower (than the cardio machine estimates)
Thanks,

There's been some discussion about just that sort of thing here .... For those who use fitday... ... come on over and see.
