And I'm sure you're aware of the ability, or at least advertised ability, for smartwatches and other fitness trackers to track one of the more pertinent metric in fitness, and that is your calories burned. Estimating calories burned is already a very difficult task, at least in aiming for accuracy. So how exactly is a smartwatch able to do so when research-grade calorie tracking devices requires much more complex equipment? Is there something smartwatch makers aren't telling us? Or, maybe, they're not as reliable of calories trackers as we think? Let's find out! Picturefit on YouTube! I share some of my health and fitness tips with you. Come check out our content!

I never really figured how inaccurate the watch was, but always subconsciously knew it was an estimation at best. My assumption like that mentioned, is that the manufacturers update their algorithms and formulae in the devices to improve said accuracy. Apple's ECG app/feature has to pass medical approval, and here in the UK the claim is that "In a clinical study using a 12-lead ECG as a reference device, the ECG app demonstrated 99.6% specificity in classifying sinus rhythm and 98.3% sensitivity in classifying AF for the classifiable results." But ultimately, it's a guide, a tool to use and I find it's most motivating by showing trends. It fascinates me how it gathers certain data (like how does it know when I'm sleeping or just sitting doing nothing?), but the results of that have guided me by the trends it generates.

Fun fact: despite having equipped with heart rate monitor, Samsung devices and Samsung Health do NOT use your heart rate to count calories burnt. Even if it display to you the heart rate. You'll realize this that your most intense 10 minutes workout will produce the exact same calorie burnt compared to 10 minutes of sitting and watching TV as long as you select the same workout.

these are a "gage" of everything. Everyone knows they are not super accurate. It's a motivational tool to keep your ass moving.

I credit my Garmin Vivoactive for at LEAST 25% of my success in getting into the best shape of my life. I think the key for any calorie counting watch is consistency.

If you count your calories carefully, weigh yourself regularly, and the watch measures calories consistently across activities then it doesn’t matter how much your actually burning. If the calories burned on the watch is greater than what you counted at each meal, then you just need to weigh yourself over the course of several months to know exactly what your average burned calories are. If you lost 5 lbs in 5 weeks and your watch had you at a 600 calorie deficit, then you know you’re watch is probably over estimating a bit. Regardless, my watch gave me a baseline and seeing the numbers tick up throughout the day is gratifying.

It makes sense they under report calories burned, as people who are considered over weight would consume less calories (presuming they are creating a calorie deficit, to lose weight), if it over estimated everyone would be consuming a higher number of calories, so makes sense to me. I do find the video funny as the takeaway is, basically they aren't reliable estimates but you should get one anyway lol. Maybe for some people they might motivate you to move more etc, which itself I guess is a good thing however if your a healthy person and aren't looking to lose weight personally I wouldn't bother as the information is quite irrelevant. Like the people that go on about how many steps they've done in a day is irrelevant to me, if you told me a distance you walked I would be able to gauge that a lot better. Unless your someone who's crazy about stats and love to put numbers on everything, ie deep sleep/light sleep, v02, calories burned, steps taken, heart rate and blood pressure then go for it. The only two I'm interested in would be the latter 2, I can get a step counter on my phone if I need one, and same for sleep cycles. Right now I'm not in a position where I need to track calories but I'd cross that bridge when I come to it.

The think the heart rate monitor feature is the most useful feature of smart watches. It gives you an idea of how much you can exert yourself before it's too much.

I like fitness tracking watches because of two things:
1) A watch, so I can tell the time.
2) A watch that can help me track general trends of how intense a workout goes.

I can notice I worked out a lot better when I actually put in a lot more effort into my cardio, than when I don't. Which can help me get a good idea on how much calories I burned and how much I should eat.

I gave up on relying on accurate numbers the moment I realized I got my stand goal…by sitting.

But I wouldn’t have been motivated to even workout in the first place if it wasn’t for my Apple Watch. Seeing the estimated calories burned and the amount of time in the gym is another kind of high for me.

So should we use them just for steps per day?

Yea, I take calories indicators from watch or gym machines with a grain of salt. I use it to compare training relatively to each other in terms of effort but I wouldn't trust them for counting calories for diet reasons.

I have controlled my measurements using my own long-term measurements of in/output and energy expenditure due to exercise and I was surprised how well my tracker estimates what I burn. It works so well that I can 95% rely on those numbers to create a calorie deficit, which just totally makes my day. But actually, I don't even want to long term. I am just interested in keeping my step count up, and training for a half marathon. So I use the GPS, heart rate monitor, sometimes sleep tracker, and that's it.

From the beginning of getting a fitbit to my purchase of an apple watch I always used the data to construct an understanding of the relevance of the numbers.

I used to work at Garmin and our watches do not accurately track calories. Garmin uses a formula that roughly calculates calories burned with your total heart beat. Put simply, the more heart beat you produce, the more calories the watch registers.
It only provides a rough idea of how active you've been.
