I am surprised to see that even though if I am not wearing my watch it detects heart rate as well as the calories are being burnt without even using the watch, now my question is that this should not happen, any solution for this?

    This is exactly as it is designed. 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. 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.
