    Polar Ft60


    So I invested in my first HR monitor and just want to know if anyone has used the Polar Ft60 and has any feedback on it?

    I use it just about every time I workout, even lifting. Curious, how long of a workout(s) have you been getting in and how many cals does it state you burnt.

    I can hit over 1k cal burnt on my 90 mins days that includes misc WUs, 10 min treadmill run and some heavy lifting. Esp legs days.

    I used it yesterday for a 90 minute workout and got just Over 800 cal that was with lifting included with some jogging. On my arm days it's not too much I would think I burn more than it is saying as I feel more fatigued.

    no. im pretty sure these things cant be 100% but i like it as a good gauge. i spend a solid 50-60 mins lifting and i move. THis includes a 10/15 min WU and some misc crap.

    Im also a few lbs heavier then u
