Galaxy Watch Works Out Less Calorie Burn Than Phone Does

Hi all.

Ok bit of an odd one. Been a keen runner for a very long time now.

Over the past year or 2 I have taken my S8 out with me on my runs for music and sheath tracker.

Its been great but the phone swinging around in my pocket is a little irritating.

So my S10 up grade has come along with the Galaxy Watch included which is a great  opportunity to step away from the swinging phone but have the same tracker just on my wrist instead.


So I have been on a few runs with it. But it shows a less calorie burn. I know its only an estimate but i do the same distance in the same time. My phone has always said between 700 - 750 but the watch comes up with 500 - 530?


Has anyone else experienced or know why it does it? 200 is quite a difference.
