So I know that a lot of people have complained about the Galaxy Watch calculating calories as too high but I was wondering if anyone has experienced the opposite problem. I just received my Galaxy Watch Active two days ago and I've only used to a few times to track workouts but I've noticed that the calorie count for some of the workouts seems too low. When I went to the gym and used the watch to track a kettlebell workout I did (I just used the circuit training option on the watch) it says that for a 22 min workout with an average heart rate of 129bpm that I only burned 77 calories. If I use calorie burn calculators on the internet both ones that take into account heart rate and ones that don't they say that for my age, height and weight that I should have burned anywhere between 128-175 calories.
The even weirder thing is that when I have taken my dogs for a 25 minute walk around the block the watch calculates that I have burned around 156 calories even though my average heart rate was only 126 bpm. Am I just using the wrong workout setting to track my workouts? Does anyone know if there is a way to edit a workout on your Samsung health app to change the calories burned?
I have the same issue. Been using galaxy watch since November and calories counted are way too low. My Garmin watch was much better. I go to gym 3 times a week and 60 minute if body combat should burn minimum of 600 calories without any heart rate details. My watch always says around 260 calories! And I mean I work hard for the whole hour so this is terrible. Wish i sruck to Garmin, that had more options in the app and was more accurate!
Same for me.
My previous watches (Gear S2, Gear Fit, & Gear Fit 2 Pro) all averaged about 150-200 calories per mile jogged, depending on my pace, heart rate, weather, etc.
The Galaxy Watch Active is only showing about 100 calories per mile. I tried it with the Strava app and it was better. I'd like to use Samsung Health though. Hopefully a software update can fix it.
