Smart Calories

The most accurate calorie counter on the market calculates the number of calories burned. The energy expenditure calculation is based on:

  • Body weight, height, age, gender
  • Individual maximum heart rate (HRmax)
  • Heart rate during training
  • Individual resting heart rate value (HRrest)
  • Individual maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max)
  • Altitude

For best possible Smart Calories information accuracy, please give V800 your measured VO2max and HRmax values if you have them. If not, use the value given by Polar Fitness test.
