Thank you for trying to explain! I don't completely understand, but I'll try not to get too caught up in the little details.

It looks like that is happening because of your recent weigh-in. The calories burned amounts go by brackets of weight and your latest weigh-in put you in a different bracket. The more you weigh, the more calories you typically burn doing the same activity at a lighter weight. The tracker on Monday is showing you the correct total for both days, but on Tuesday, it's using the total for the week using your current weight, which appears to be about a calorie difference at the moment.

Sorry for the confusion, but I hope that helps!

I did the exact same exercise Monday and Tuesday. Tuesday's total caloric burn is less than Monday's by a small amount (493 vs 506, which I assume could be correct since I didn't update my weight tracker until Tuesday morning and I'd lost a little weight.)

But if I look on Monday's fitness tracker page, the total caloric burn for both days added together is 1011, whereas on Tuesday's fitness tracker page, the total caloric burn for the two days together is 985. NEITHER of these totals is correct. 493 + 506 = 999.

Does anyone know what gives? I mean, it seems like adding correctly shouldn't be that difficult.
