But general-purpose fitness trackers have a hard time predicting calorie burn for new exercise, even with heart rate data. Since virtual and augmented reality are new and each game uses a different set of muscles depending on the type of gameplay, there is little to no data that conventional exercise trackers can use to estimate how many calories you burn during a workout.

Heart rate and adrenaline levels increase as the excitement of the game increases. All this contributes to an increase in the metabolic rate, which usually burns calories.
If you’re looking for a fun way to burn calories without necessarily causing bodily pain, VR is the way to go. While exercising in virtual reality, you will find yourself sweating a lot.
