Question about Watches
Lost manual for GSI GK965L watch. I am trying to figure out how it counts calories, or how to view the calories that were counted.

I don't know this watch personally but it sounds like it may be a short circuit or maybe one or two of the buttons may be being activated during a particular movement. I'd recommend you take it to a watchmaker for diagnosis.

I had the same problem and found that the chest strap wasn't tight enough to get a good reading. If that doesn't work, you might have to send it in to have the battery changed. Search for a Polar authorized service center. It gives you some troubleshooting tips too. Good luck.

First you need to understand that the Polar system is a medical grade device and it is calculating calories based on specific information that you have inputed and heart rate data from your heart.
Most treadmills and other exercise machines use a much simpler counter that is height and weight based to calculate calories and are generally over generous with their numbers.
Depending on the blood pressure machine you are using, the pulse (not heart rate) is coming through the brachial artery, again not quite as accurate as measuring r-r variance from your heart. There is a ton of literature you can read if you are into the accurateness of the system, but I will sum up with saying that you actual calorie expenditure will be closer on the Polar than on most other devices outside of a hospital. As too the heart rate this is also true, so more likely you are getting inaccurate numbers from the other devices.
If you want pinpoint accuracy then you will need to use the Polar RS800 or S810 devices that measure and display true R-R.

Press and hold the reset button, for 5 seconds, while in Time mode. this will reset the heart monitor and the symbol will reappear on the screen.
