Yes! I actually have a high heart rate so if I didn't calibrate it, my Garmin would be assuming I was working at a much higher rate than I actually am. That would be even worse. My Garmin agrees that I've burned more today by 800+ calories, so I can only imagine this is what is causing it.
Sure. I also use one with hand and feet sensors at the gym. The one at the gym seems to think I have lost more fat than the ones at home. However, I think it's worth tracking it on the same set of scales, as even if it's not totally accurate, if the numbers are moving in the right direction, it's showing progress. Thanks…
Happy new year just wanted to revive this as I've now had a few more months of data. I use a Garmin fenix which monitors my heart rate constantly and I also use this to track workouts. By Christmas I had lost 10kg (of fat, muscle mass has remained the same and, in fact, I'm now building muscle!) so am on track to lose 4…

I know we are all different but I’m twenty years older and 7cm shorter than you, fairly active in daily life but sounds like you do a lot more exercise, and Im still losing weight on 1500 cals per day after 7 months. Very slowly now Im at BMI 27 but Im…
This is where I am. Too much comparing to others and nonsense this and that... The reality is that I am a smaller person so cannot eat like a taller one without going outwards. Sadly. So I've been going 40 days today apparently, back on the wagon. Good luck to us all!
Thanks all. It's NEAT at sedentary. I'm 34 (you tell me if that's older) and am aiming to get back into my BMI. Unfortunately I am 11kg off that currently. I exercise quite a bit - I'm a long distance swimmer and train for events each year so have to swim quite a bit and I also train in the gym a couple of times a week. I…
