How Effective is the new DB Heart Rate Monitor??
I'm thinking of getting a DB Heart Rate Monitor, but I'd like to know how user friendly it is and if it accurately syncs with the Daily Burn app. I'd also like to know whether it accurately charts how many calories one burns during a workout... I don't want to invest $50 for a HRM that doesn't work well. I haven't been able to find any user reviews of the DB HRM online, which makes me a little wary.
Thank you for your answers!ladyblak by:
As an fyi, this HRM doesn't work with any other apps outside of DB. Also, unfortunately it only displays calories burned at the end of the workout for me. Not sure if that is how it is supposed to work, but clearly not the best implementation if so.
I wear a Fitbit One tracker on my belt. Today Daily Burn told me that I burned 217 calories for Stability and Mobility-2. I am kicking and punching immediately, not waiting for Justin, and I am doing it with 1.5 pound weights in each hand. I am using an 8 pound kettlebell when I can, too. My Fitbit told me that I burned 40 calories for the same period of intensified workout. I am hoping that I can get more accurate figures from the HR monitor, so I just ordered one. Anything will be better than the huge variance I am getting between Fitbit One and the DB readouts on my screen.
