Seems to me like samsung shows some average amount of burnt calories without any sort of activity. I mean, like you being alive burns some calories, and I think they show that, plus any extra caloreis burnt via activities. It's just that I noticed, after buying my watch (it was just just after lunchtime when I bought it) it aready showed like 1000 calories burnt, I assumed it's taking into account a normal calories burn amount (as a guy I burn around 2500 a day just by perfoming basic functions of having a heart beat and being alive). Also during sleep (while wearing the watch) it shows around 600 calories burnt in my sleep of ~ 8hr, which may be somewhat accurate. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I purchased an active 2 watch today. I've owned several other watches and bands, so I have a pretty good idea of what to expect from a smartwatch. This one though, seems to not measure heartrate at any point during the day, unless I manually start a measurement. On the watch fase, which shows HR, it just shows the last measured HR value ... forever. Even after a power off and then back on, just shows an old value. Until I manually do something with it. I have it set to measure every 10 minutes in the settings. Any ideas how to get this to measure by itself? Seems to be working fine during a workout or if I set it to measure continuously. But since battery life is far from great, I would like this to take measurements in 10 minute intervals...
