The only time that they are VERY accurate is when they take measurements based on your actual heart rate, and use information that you program in like your age and weight. Everything else is based upon averages. How many calories you burn has less to do with BMI than just the BM. Generally speaking the larger you are the more calories you need just to sit here and type. To maintain my weight right now it takes about 2200 to 2300 calories with out any excersize. You may require would require more than that due to you being a bit bigger than I. Your conditioning also plays a factor. I have found that I burn fewer calories even at the same weight than I used to. This is because my heart has become better conditioned. So a ride that I may have had an average heart rate of 140 before, I may end up with an average of 135 instead, all while covering the same amount of distance at the same average speed.
Never been a mainstream type of equipment user. Look at the SUUNTO products. It's what I have been using and allows you to pretty much customize it to you. Weight, height, activity level, training level. It will even tell you training effect, or how hard you are pushing yourself during exercise.
I'm with Chisel, pedal till your heart explodes :oIf it don't pedal harder
listen to your heart when it's calling to you... 80's ballad...
