Around 250.

I run 30 miles a week and cycle 100 miles a week(when warm out.)

Calories count works and is accurate.

Calories in....Calories out. Its a simple formula and the one most true and telling for weight loss.

Knowing your calories(burned and intake) and owning a scale are the two most important factors in weight control.
thanks. i actually tried out a couple of these hrms but they're too pricey for me. i tried out the nike+ sportband (it's only $60) and it seems like it is comparable to the garmin, any opinion on that?

As far as calorie expenditure the watch goes a little further than most other models. It factors age/height/weight and activity level. (There is a chart that shows your activity level based on the number of hours you exercise a week). Having averaged between 40-50 miles of running per week for over 3 decades, weight gain has not been an issue. 5'10' 145-150 lbs, age 67. My motto: Exercise for fitness:EAT foor diet. Nick
wow, that's really impressive! but the garmin is out of my price range, i'm trying to keep it under $100 maybe if i get really serious about running i'll invest in a watch hrm like the garmin or something comparable to it.
