I have a similar issue, work my butt off in in a HIIT work out for an hour and get the same count from a slow 4km walk... I also find it will count them up and it will read 699 and then i will double check it in an hour and it will have dropped to reading 448. It's super frustrating, update needs to be created ASAP or unfortunately have to move away from it
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!
