Worth noting, without data from an ECG (heart rate monitor) and face mask based gas analyzers, along with details of the gradient, wind speed, and surface there aren't any accurate equations. The best you can do is to estimate a VO2 (mL·kg-1·min-1) figure, and convert that into a Kcal one: Kcal/Min ~= respiratoryExchangeRatio * massKg * VO2 / 1000 ...
thank you for your answers! i think i have figured out an aswer, and my boss accepted it, because this little pedometer won't have any gps connection. here is the formula: 1.) Calories burned per mile = 0.57 x 175 lbs.(your weight) = 99.75 calories per mile. 2.)Your_strip = height * 0,415. 3.) steps_in_1_mile = 160934.4(mile in cm) / strip. 4.) ...
From a step count alone, I wouldn't bother as the error could be as much as +/- 40%. Primarily as your step length changes with speed, as does wind resistance and energy expended, the gradient of a walk, your body fat percentage and fitness level will also affect the calculation, but the errors these factors introduce can be reduced by aggregating several ...
If waiting = watching television (1 MET), then yes, as per the MET formula: MET = vVO2Max = VO2Max / 3.5 = KCal Burnt / (bodyMassKg * timeHours ) So as you state: 3 * 9 MET (cardio exercise) = 27 METS which is equivalent to: 27 * 1 MET (watching TV) = 27 METS
