My treadmill says 300calories and 550 burnt calories while my watch says 750 active calories. How should I be recording this?
And what are the difference on the type of calories?

I think weight x distance x .3 is a low estimate for walking. MapMyWalk (a MFP sister product) awards me weight x distance x .55 and most other walking apps/tools are around .4. Which doesn't sound like a big difference from .3 but is 33 % more calories. Walking is a key part of my routine and with lots of my own data available to analyze, I think .45 would be the most accurate estimate.
A bit less for treadmill, unless using incline.
