It would have to be an estimate because some exercises are dependent on weight. For example a 150 pound person will burn about 100 calories per mile (walking or running). A 300 pound person will burn about twice that for the same distance (200 calories per mile). Their heart rates (for walking) may be about the same. (certainly the 300 pound person won't have 2X the heart rate.)
