I have received the new Samsung Galaxy watch 3. But I have one issue with it. I work out every morning. According to my watch i only burnt 281 Calories for a 60 minute work according to my Peloton bike I burnt 527 calories that is a big difference. With the Samsung Galaxy watch 2 their was a difference as well. So I upgraded to the 3 thinking it would fix my problem. But now I am just irritated that i have spent this much on not just one watch but 2, now and still not counting correctly. If I spent this much money on a watch, you would want it to work correctly. Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's because they don't track calorie burn using heart rate, they do it with some algorithm. You can get closer to the Peloton if you set the Activity Intensity to "Vigorous". I asked Samsung about this and they told me there will be an update out in Feb that will allow us to work out calorie burn using HR so hopefully this will get better soon.
This is the only thing stopping me from sticking with a galaxy watch.
Returned because they don’t take HR into consideration, was it just run of the mill support or someone higher up as not sure how much I’d trust it from live chat
