    My major mode of exercise is the elliptical. Can anyone report how accurate the MS Band heart rate monitor is and estimated calorie burn compared to using a chest strap?

    Heart rate is variable, and seems to be a "your mileage WILL vary" deal. Some say it's good, other say they get wild readings.

    I'm pretty sure calorie burn is based on heart rate, and may or may not use the same formula as other devices.
