Default Heart Rate Monitor/Calorie Burner Display

I'm looking to get one of these pretty soon, can those of you who have one weigh in on what kind you like the best?


I'm looking for one that I'd wear all the time, or close to it, that will show me an estimate of the number of calories I burn daily. Hoping it will help with possible overestimating/underestimating calorie deficits.

A regular HRM is meant to be used only when exercising, I think, so you should probably look at a FitBit or BodyBugg.

I have a FitBit, and I love it. Its MUCH easier to hide and way cuter than a BodyBugg... I used to have a BodyBugg, but I got tired of paying a monthly fee to see the same things my FitBit tells me for free, lol.. And I got tired of answering the 'whats that on your arm?' questions.

How do the FitBit/BodyBugg compare in terms of showing burns? Are they close in accuracy?

Another one I've been looking at, along with those two, is BodyMedia Fit/Core, but I'm just not sure about which one to get.
