The all in one package? (monitors/fitness tracking)
I am looking for a do it all moniter. I want something that I can wear for a day that will track relatively accurately heart rate, calories burned, and pedometer. It doesn't need to be discreet either. I just want to do a trial run to see really where I am with burning calories in a day and steps/etc. Any ideas would be great!! Thanks

Look into the BodyMedia device... bodymedia dot com. I have used one for years. Search on the forums here to find different comments on them. In the past, I've encountered places where you can rent them (or Bodybugg, which is the same thing) for like a week or two, but I don't know if those places still exist.

Bodymedia tracks your calories burned per minute, your activity level (in METs), your steps, and your sleep. It does not explicitly tell you your heart rate, although if your calorie burn and MET level is higher, your heart rate is usually going to be higher.
