Hi, I've a problem with the TT runner 2 musics. I only use it to run, and the rest of the days, I leave it on the table without being used. Well, when I dont use it I show 0 steps, 0 km, but in calorie puts me between 400-1500. Every day and without using me puts the calories you want and throughout the day I get more quantity, without moving the clock. The TT has 1 month, should I take it to fix?
PD: I'm sorry for my english.

    If you were alive and breathing, digesting, etc. then you were burning calories and that is what a 24/7 activity tracker is supposed to be tracking. It computes a BMR based on your gender, height, weight, etc. and takes this along with steps and sports activities to come up with calories burned. So it is calculating the calories just being alive at all times as well as those from sports activities. This is exactly what it and all other activity trackers are designed to do. In my experience it is generally pretty accurate (or as accurate as BMR based calculations can be as they are based on averages).

    I hope this helped answer your question. If so, please mark it as a solution so others can look for it if they have the same question.
