Ok, so Im heading out to my first Zumba class with my Fitbit on...how accurate is this with aerobic dancing and calories burned? Anyone used it for this? I am going to write down my calories before and after with Zumba and see if it seems accurate. With my BMI I should be burning 500+ calories, so we shall see....

If you hold down the tracker's button..it will record your session.. then you can view how many calories you burned and for how long.

you should use the timer with any activity that isn't explicitly step based not just sleeping. When I did Zumba sometimes I'd use it sometimes I wouldn't because dancing is sort of step based. I use it when I do 30 Day Shred and even when driving or riding in a car because you get false steps.

Did you notice a difference when you used the timer and when you didn't with your calories burned?
