    Those are not accurate readings. They are very lose estimates. I use these readings just to determine my intensity, and if it goes up, I know my workout was more intense than before. But I do all my treadmill workouts on the same one (at home).

    the machines may not be synced, or the different models measure different things to find out how many colories you burned

    those readings are just averages. not personalized.
