Are the treadmills, ellipticals, bikes and other cardio machines accurate when it comes to miles completed and calories burned??

My boyfriend mentioned to me that my treadmills calories burned and miles put in doesnt look right.

Last night i did an hour and 10 minutes (3.53 miles) on the treadmill (2.5 incline and 3.1 speed straight through no stopping or increase in incline or speed) and burned 710 calories. i use the manual setting that has me put in my weight and age. does calories burned and miles completed seem right?

If thats too confusing to read:
Treadmill
70 minutes
2.5 incline
3.1 speed
3.53 miles completed
710 calories burned.
Does that seem right?

The treadmill is more accurate. The elliptical is a liar and from research it’s a total waste. The treadmill never says burn 700 calories in 40 mins for me. In about 30 minutes it says that I burn about 300 and I have that incline cranked up and speed on like 3.0

I can’t speak for the treadmill specifically, since I use the elliptical for my cardio and just cool down on the treadmill or walk a little before weight training to get my blood flowing, haha.

But, I wear a Fibit with a heart rate monitor and it shows my calorie burn on the elliptical as pretty similar to what the machine tells me. A deviation of maybe 20/30 calories, so that’s pretty close.

You are exercising, that’s all that matters. Especially when you are doing an hour of cardio.

I don’t pay much attention to the calories on machines, I only use calories to help me know I’m eating enough.

it truly depends on your heart rate as well as energy output.

I have checked the exercises versus a calorie counting app. the machines are usually about 10-20% higher…

The calories burned indicators on cardio machines are infamous for being a little generous. 710 calories in 70 minutes sounds like a lot.
