How accurate is the up band?

14 Nov

Today I wore my heart rate monitor along with my Up band for my morning workout.

As you can see the calorie count differs on both… the polar monitor is supposedly not very accurate either.. so maybe I just take an average of both?

The Up band also shows intensity of your workout.. I wonder how accurate it is.. It is showing my most intense workout was when I ran my mile.. which could be true..

So I am still up in the air about it. I love the sleep tracking though.. that definitely seems accurate.  I normally look at the clock when I randomly get up at night.. and every time the band has detected this.  I really like the alarm also, because now I don’t have to worry about waking up hubby when I wake up super early.
