Got my new POLAR F6-let the calories burn!

arewethereyetarewethereyet Posts: 18,854Member Member Posts: 18,854Member Member
I popped for the F6.

I was frustrated with my timex as all it did was give me the heart rate.

Now I can really see how many calories I am burning. I have a feeling the Plateau is almost over.....

Has anyone seen a difference since using the F6-in tracking and burning calories?

Woo Hoo...a big work out is in store for me tonight (get your minds out of the gutter....ooorrrr maybe not!) :bigsmile:

    I love mine! Gives you a more actual picture of calories burned ... which is nice rather than a rough estimate. Best of luck and many calories burned!

    keep us posted how you like it. I ordered one too and can't wait until it arrives and I can see if my excercise burning calculations were right. Let us know if it motivates you.

    I am waiting to be able to afford it. Right now I have a strapless one I use and I really like it and I know that it works some but I would like to get one with a strap that way it can be more accurate.

    I am in LOVE with my new F6. I knew the calories burned were too high on MFP and too low on the eliptial read out. I worked out for 45 min and burned 300 calories. Also I can get off the machine and dance like a fool-still recording my calories.

    I am so pysched!!!!

    Eliptical machine moderate (hr 130 average) for 30 minutes
    Dancing like a fool to rap music (heart rate 145-150) 10 minutes

    The HR for my age is in the 70-80% range.

    The good thing was I could get off the machine when I got sick and tired of it, keep my HR up dancing and having fun, then got back on to continue.

    really a great tool :love:

    Be specific punk, I paid 40 bucks for another HRM that didnt count calories and I was so sad :cry:
    Not that it was bad, it just told me HR and I wanted to know other info. The F6 is on sale 99.00 right now (cuz they came out with other models)
