Default eliptical

there's no option for a stationary eliptical machine one the activites section. Any suggestions ? Its a well used machine so I thought it would be listed.
Thanks

I have noticed this, too, and would also like to see elliptical added to the activities list. I use it all the time.

I agree i switch this up along with the treadmil and I have to put ski machine and make sure the calories burned equal out to what I did in the gym.

Default elliptical machine?

What do you add for the elliptical machine?
I searched for "elliptical machine" and "elliptical",
But I didn't find anything.
What parameters should I add for a elliptical machine?

Default Activities logging

HI, I work out at the gym with the elliptical 30min/pay and sometimes twice/day. How can I log that in the Activities tab? There isn't a way to add it and I can't find it in the search dialog.

The machine I'm using says I've burned ~500 calories in a 30 minute session, so I definately want credit for that time! haha.

Thanks..

Assuming your ellipticals calorie calculator is correct, you can input your time as running at 8mph. This should be very close. There are many other posts about elliptical not being listed in the activities menu.

I use "stair-treadmill ergometer" ....I usually have to adjust the time by 4 or 5 minutes to get it close enough to accurate, but it seems to work well enough for me!
