If you're really concerned about tracking HR, calories burned, etc. a HRM is the way to go. I have a Polar one that I wear when I skate and I've found it to be quite accurate and consistent - I can usually estimate pretty closely what the calorie burn will be based upon how hard I'm working. Before wearing the HRM, I would have had no real idea what the true numbers were.
