What’s the deal with the calories on the Wyze Watch (47mm)? I’m not sure what it’s tracking. On Fitbit it typically calculates my calories including resting need for calories (2,500 kcal/day). Is it measuring only calories that have been expended during steps or activities?
I think it only counts calories based on steps throughout the day, and only uses heartrate to calculate calories when the activity function is active. I did a 15 minute workout with the activity function - 150 calories. Later I did a different 15 minute workout (much more intense) without the activity function - about 15 calories. The later exercise even recorded more steps than the morning one. I don’t know what the “always on” setting for heartrate does then.
I bought my son this watch. Having the same issues. I am hoping that Wyze creates a firmware update to correct us. Otherwise this feature is useless.
