Sorry, I was just looking at the last few days where you tracked walking. I'll see if I can check into it further and will let you know what we find.

Hi there - thanks for your reply!

But have to say, it's a little weird that mph would have anything to do with a high intensity cardio class?

Also, I did select km's for my walking entry (and it shows this when I view it - maybe it doesn't for you as your settings are showing imperial?).

The cycling entry I just made a few min's ago was mph, but that's only because I couldn't see a km option for this particular exercise...

If you can shed some light on some account setting that I'm overlooking that would be great...when I created the account it defaulted to metric based on my country...

Thank you!

I checked your account, and I think the problem is that you're using the mph entry in the fitness tracker. If you use one of the km/hr entries instead, your calories burned numbers should be more reasonable.

Yeah; must be!!

Thankfully I don't really need to track my fitness as I'm already in a good routine and have a fair idea how many calories my activity burns...

Nutrition tracking looks all ok!

Thanks!

Something seems wrong with that. The only thing I can think is that it's confusing metric and imperial, even with the proper settings.

OK; so I checked my preferences, and it's definitely set to metric system...any one else have any thoughts why the fitness tracker is showing such low calorie burn?

I walked 20 mins to the gym this morning at a reasonable pace, and it tells me that only burned 35 calories...

So not only was high intensity cardio way off yesterday, so was walking today...

The calories burned through weight training look ok though...

Help!

Just wondering if you entered your weight correctly, and given that you mentioned your weight loss in kg's, whether you selected the option to use the metric system (accessible in the Account Preferences link at the top LH corner of the Start page)? You may need to delete and re-enter the exercise once you have made these changes.

Your bodyweight is an important input into the calorie calculator, and if this is incorrect, will mean you get an inaccurate calorie estimate.

Hi everyone - I'm brand new here, and I just entered my first day.

According to the fitness tracker, I only burned 145 calories doing a 55 minute high intensity circuit training class this morning.

This can't be right!

Every other tracker - and every professional I've ever spoken to - say these types of classes burn somewhere between 300-500 calories, depending on how hard you go, how much you weight etc...

I'm fit, go hard out and not really overweight (just trying to drop 5kg's).

Can anyone shed any light as to why it's tell me such a low amount?

Thanks in advance!
