The 305 doesn't calculate calorie consumption based on heart rate. It used distance traveled, weight and age in a similar way that a treadmill does. You can run inside on a treadmill using the footpod accessory, which calculates distance without the use of the GPS. (similar to the Nike product). The footpod works very well and will give you your desired results. This is clearly stated on the Garmin site within the features of the product.

Thanks for your response. I thought that was the case but was not sure whether I was missing something.

Just so I understand, as well: Garmin 305 will not track indoor calories associated with a strength training routine? Thank you.

Hi everybody, first time poster here. I've been using a sort of mapping system by Telenav. It is really useful to me because I can see other people's bike routes and the best part is calculating the calories I can burn. (see it here: http://maps.telenav.com/tnmap/). Just wondering if anybody has a calorie counter they recommend?

Wow. I'm so glad I read this. I wanted it for a running watch AND a workout watch. If it doesn't base the calorie output from heart rate, it's of little use to me in cross training events.
