hi all, i have just moved up from a garmin305 to a 405cx,can anybody tell me how accurate they are with the calorie counts,when running for 2yrs with the 305 it was telling me i was burning around 125/130 calories per mile which i thought was great,then when i moved to 405 with the same information inputted in the 405 says im only burning around 94/96 calories per mile,which one is right coz if its the 405 then i'll be gutted as ive been led to believe in burning a higher rate?
It must depend on what you tell it your weight is, and I think also on how much you climb. I don't know if the vertical distance it uses is the true one or the stupidly exaggerated one that's usually its first choice. E.g. if I run miles round a track, it will first tell me I've climbed ~500m and then correct itself to show correctly that the track is 1-2 m higher at one end than the other.
Thanks for your replys,but like my missus said ive been running for 2yrs now should i still be counting calories,and concentrating more on my fitness and health.?
