Galaxy watch calories burned wrong!

Sometime last year Samsung Health removed the weight management tab. I'm now learning that calories burned on my GWA2 are based on BMR and not heart rate. It calculates the same number of calories burned regardless of your heart rate. Meaning once I select running, I could stand still and burn the same number of calories on my watch as if I ran a mile. How is this a fitness watch if it doesn't take heart rate into consideration and gives everyone the exact same caloric rate? What is even the point of the heart rate monitor if its not used for anything? And why remove the weight management tab but market the watch as a health watch? If I knew this, I would have stuck with Fitbit.
