Bike computer accuracy

I wanted to know if the results after cycling on a spin bike displayed on the computer are accurate as if One rode outside for the same distance and time??I’m pretty confident when using a treadmill with walking but not so sure with a bike.

Typically, they are pretty close. Without GPS to track your actual speed, it's hard to fully replicate the accuracy of an outdoor ride, but most bikes use a combined speed and RPM metric to determine your total distance. For accurate calorie information, select a bike that syncs with a heart rate chest strap. A HR chest strap is the best way to get accurate calorie data.
