If you could possibly help, I have a Gear S3 Frontier and I seem to be having issues with the calorie count. Before I even walk it says ive burnt 400 and then by the end of the day its over 1000. I pedel to work, but on my ***** all day near enough. Im not sure if this is a fault with the software or the hardware itself. Anyone else have this issue ?
Im having the same problem too. Just bought few weeks back. I was on treadmill yesterday for not even an hour but it counted as though I lost 7000calories. Now, Im just doing office works it detected as over 2000 calories lost. How I wish this is true!!!!
Based on the profile data that you have entered in your S health Profile, Gear s3 would automatically calculate the calories that you have burned with your BMR. As you need calories throughtout the day to perform actions, even when you sleep you are burning calories albeit at slower rate. So even if you are not wearing gear, it will show the calories burnt. So when you exercise, you will see that calories burnt are higher compared to the days when you were in active.
Hope it helps!
You burn calories during sleep. I presume that is what is happening before walk. Throughout the day you burn calories, ie BMR, so 1000 would be the least calories you should be eating to maintain current weight
