400-450 cals during that period would be much more accurate, and my macros in my diet input agrees

I'm a big boy lol I can take it.

Everyone always says "don't do nutrisystem because you never learn how to cook for yourself and learn the importance of proper diet" yet when it comes to things like this, I see conflicting ideals. Part of being a beginner is to learn when and how to deal with programming, nutrition, and recovery. Good programs are already built to have recovery periods. Having a proper program, sleeping, and nutrition is ALWAYS the backbone to any successful athlete. Having a watch tell you that you feel like shite isn't going to help anything. What are you gonna do? Just not practice or lift?

Take an example, you feel low energy and can't perform at peak, do technical lifts and drills and don't do extreme things. Listen to the body and don't rely on machines.

Now I CAN see this being beneficial for a program coordinator or coach that deals with many athletes with custom workouts but for any individual....Waste of money.

Just because you "feel low energy" doesn't mean you are. The body can have short term responses that may make you think you are low that day, but it can be primed for a high activity day.

The whole point of this device and its comparables is to aggregate data over time and give insights using numbers that are hard or impossible to gather using "feel"

Don't get mad at me because you can't perform without all your accessories.

That's called caffeine, Nancy.

While I agree with your premise, I still think it's useful even to guys like you and me, if for nothing more than to learn what helps you recover and to really have hard metrics.
