How are Calories Burned calculated?

When calculating Calories burned we include the following factors:

  • Distance
  • Speed
  • Time
  • Elevation
  • Activity type
  • Body weight measurements
  • Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)

NOTE: Your calculated calories may change slightly after an activity is sent from the device to the servers. This is normal and is due to the servers having more accurate elevation information as well as performing additional processing on the activity that cannot be easily performed in real time on the device. The adjusted data will sync back to your phone the next time your app refreshes!

**Heart rate data is not included when calculating calories burned**
