My gym now has the Precor Arc Trainers. They are different than an elliptical. Kind of like an elliptical and a stair climber combined with more diverse options for motion. I can't find it in the cardio exercises. Is it there under something else? If not, I'd love it to be added.

I added it manually. Do a search, and when it comes up with nothing, they'll be a link underneath the two boxes that says "Can't find what you're looking for? Add an exercise to the database" click that too add the arc trainer. I've been entering in the calories it says on the machine, not sure how accurate they are. I'm thinking about getting a HRM soon..Not sure which one yet tho. Trying to decide between Polar, Timex and their 87 different models. :-/

I use my HRM. I went with the Polar F4. I like it.

If you enter it once it will be there for you. I entered mine under ARC Trainer.

I don't have an HRM, but a friend of mine who shares the same Arc Trainer love as I do, does. She told me she tested it on a few different occasions, and it seems that the machine under-estimates calories. What I usually do, is take the value on the machine and then round down a bit.

That's one of the ones I looked at..

Question for those who have HRMs, some of them say "Women's", some say "Men's" and some say nothing at all. Does it matter if it's "men's" or "women's"? Or is it more of just a size/aesthetic thing?
