Hi,
I got my touch watch from tomtom yesterday and paired it with my phone using the app. I have filled in all info and meassured both Bpm and body fat and all that. It has started counting steps and all looks okey, except for that it says I have burned over 800 calories doing more or less nothing today. I have around five hundred steps and I cant make sense of it.I934c56ff-bfd8-4946-8a84-eea1d988d61e.png

    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 between midnight and whenever you woke up you burned 800 calories just being alive. 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.
