SOURCE: How accurate are the calorie counters on treadmills and cardio equipment?

Here's what the Sole exercise equipment makers say about calorie counters on exercise equipment. it's from their E-95 users manual: "Calorie readings on every piece of exercise equipment, whether it is in a gym or at home, are not accurate and tend to vary widely. They are meant only as a guide to monitor your progress from workout to workout. The only way to measure your calorie burn accurately is in a clinical setting connected to a host of machines. This is because every person is different and burns calories at a different rate. Some good news is that you will continue to burn calories at an accelerated rate for at least an hour after you have finished exercising!"

SOURCE: My sportline watch resets itself during exercise

I don't know this watch personally but it sounds like it may be a short circuit or maybe one or two of the buttons may be being activated during a particular movement. I'd recommend you take it to a watchmaker for diagnosis.

When does the clearview pedometer reset


I'm responding 'cuz my Clearview pedometer remains something of a mystery to me, too. So I apologize, right off, about the length and confusion in this procedure. Maybe someone will add a simpler, comprehensive list of commands.
W/o access to a user manual, here is what I've learned about it. Barbara, I didn't think it reset itself... maybe you can explain. I did find that when I hit the "reset" button on the back (to the left of the belt clip), it resets the Step (number taken), Mile (distance traveled), and Kcal (calories burned) to zero. One click for all-three together.
More SETTING steps: The menu is a vertical column to the right of the digital display (from top to bottom: Step, inch, LB, Mile, Kcal). As you scan down the menu, look for the teeny > arrow pointing at one of the functions. Normally the arrow skips from Step, to Mile, to Kcal. If you've been using it, and there are numbers in these fields, you can manually reset these to zero by pressing the "reset" button. Those 3 fields should now register "0" when you scan through the modes as before. I believe this does not reset your stride or weight settings.
These other 2 modes: inch (length of YOUR step), and LB (YOUR weight = this helps in calculating your calorie consumption... I think) were a bit tricky to reset to MY body. I managed to select those modes and enter my own data somewhat haphazardly, by simultaneously pressing the two buttons on the right (Mode, and Set); and then (sometimes, but not necessarily?) pressing the Set button alone. Either way, if you're lucky (!) you'll eventually get a blinking number and the arrow > indicating which field you're in: inch, or LB.
If it is the inch field, it will read 0, or something like 30 (your stride in inches). If you want to change it, press the SET button repeatedly (lower/right) to INCREASE the number in the field. Apparently you can't lower the number directly - if you instinctively press the upper/right button (MODE), it just closes the setting function.
So in order to set to the length of YOUR step, keep pressing (or you can hold it down) until you reach your stride length... it continues up to 120 inches (!!) before restarting at zero. I haven't figured out why it opens in inch, or in LB, but by randomly pressing both rt-hand buttons, I can eventually get into each of the two fields. The weight settings in LB also adjust only upward by pressing the SET button (that is, once you get the field to open). You may have to go to 150# (its max. setting) before you can begin at zero again. Last weird note: When I can't seem to get into these fields at all, I have had some success by pressing and HOLDING the SET button until the reading (usually 0, by then) blinks off and then on, once. Then you can proceed with the other steps.

Is the Kcal an abbreviation for calories? Also, how do I read that screen? It has a 35 on top and 1.9 on the bottom? Thanks. HJ-112


I can help only with the Kcal. Kcal is the abbreviation for KiloCalorie (1000 Calories) (The prefix "Kilo" means 1000x) The Metric system uses the Joule and if you like arithmetic, 1 calorie = 4.186 Joule)

How does the e3200treadmill fat calories work with the regular calories burnt.


Add incline. Instead of keeping the treadmill on a flat surface, maintain an incline as you walk, jog or run. This will serve to replicate the wind resistance and terrain variation that you encounter when you run outdoors. Keep an incline of at least 1.5 percent on your treadmill throughout your workout.

  • 2 Increase your speed. If you run at the same speed every time you workout, your body will not be challenged and you may reach a fitness plateau. Up your speed by a quarter-mile per hour every few weeks.
  • 3 Vary your workout time. In order to challenge your body in different ways, variety is key. If you run for half an hour three times a week, opt for a one-hour run for your fourth workout. This will help to condition your body for endurance training, resulting in more calories burned.
  • 4 Use intervals. Interval training can dramatically increase your calorie burn in an average workout. Instead of running at a steady pace for your entire workout, mix in sprints. Jog at a steady pace for two minutes, and then increase your speed to a full sprint for 30 seconds. Return to the steady pace to recover. Your heart rate will rise on your intense sprint intervals and stabilize on your longer recovery periods.
  • 5 Incorporate incline into your interval training. You can use incline in the same manner that you would speed to interval train. Walk or jog at a 5 percent incline for two minutes. Increase the incline to 10 percent for two minutes and then to the 15 percent maximum for one minute. Decrease the incline back to 10 percent for two minutes and finally back to 5 percent for two minutes. Repeat this same pyramid interval a few times.
  • 6 Wear a heart rate monitor. This will monitor how hard you are actually working as well as how many calories you burn in each workout. You can then adjust your speed and incline accordingly to maximize your calorie burn.
  • 7 Drink plenty of water before, during and after your treadmill workout. If you are dehydrated, you won't perform as well as you can. You'll work harder and burn more calories if you're hydrated

    I don't know what the kcal means?


    KCal is short for Kilocalorie or Kilogram Calorie.

    One KCal equals one standard food Calorie like the kind you see on food labels.

    On your pedometer, this is probably an indication of how much energy you have burned off during your workout.

    Good luck.
