Heart-Rate Monitor, is it accurate?

Heart-Rate Monitor

Do you know how accurate your heart-rate monitor is at reading how many calories you’re burning?

Usually, heart-rate monitor has a margin of error of about 15%. Factors such as age, height and weight help predict calories burned based on common algorithms, but your gender, general fitness level, genetics, body-mass index and exercise duration also help determine calories burned.

The most accurate heart-rate monitors use a chest strap as well as wrist monitor.
