I agree with Zorbs - bodyweight is implied with calf raises, so leave it blank. (Unless you are deliberately increasing the weight with dumbbells, etc).

you leave it blank for bodyweight or whatever weight if you are holding dumbbells or plates.

I just looked at the calf raises demo and then checked it in the Fitness Tracker. I know what I would put for reps, etc., but what would I put for weight? Doesn't this exercise just use your own body weight? Should I enter my weight in the box? Haha, doesn't seem fair! But I'd like to know what others think. Thanks!
