Yes. Wrist based heart rate sensors are not expected to provide the most accurate heart rate readings. Having said that, we've noticed a very close proximation with chest straps and are very optimistic. Calories burned are a direct correlation of heart rate and therefore when the heart rate measured is not accurate, the calorie burn measured will also not be accurate.
If my heart rate is not accurate, then my calories burn will also be incorrect? Print
