    Default Calculate calories burned

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone has one of those wearable devices that can count the number of calories burned after a night of badminton? If so, which ones do you have and if they are any good?

    What do you need this for?

    If you want to count calories for your diet, I would conservatively err on the low end and calculate 500 calories for 1h of badminton.

    Honestly: Who the heck needs it more precisely?

    Calorie use depends on weight and time and intensity - no device you could wear can work it out. A treadmill, etc, only knows because you tell it how much you weigh, and it knows how long and how fast it's moving.

    A decent-paced walk will do 300-400 per hour for a bloke, so the above estimate is probably close.
