Activity on bike

Hello, how is it possible that doing 4 hours of bike almost 100 km only count me 342 points? When yesterday with a 7 km running race did I count 765 points? regards

    I honestly don't feel you can make any judgments from what it is telling you in terms of fitness points or fitness age. It only uses runs or cycles to calculate points and while it does refine its readings over time, but it seems to be a random, capricious measure that ties to very little. It uses your calculated VO2Max (which will be wrong as no watch can compute this) to calculate points. It is not the amount of exercise that matters, it is the intensity. Your run was likely at a much higher sustained intensity, hence more point.
    Unless you are in Z3 or higher for a substantial part of your workout it will not change anything. If your workouts are walks or jogs or anything that is not intense, it will have no impact on the age and points. It is based on whatever algorithm TT came up with, which is different than what Garmin uses or Strava uses, or anyone else. Ultimately, I don't expect a watch to be able to tell me how fit I am.

    No, the app is just to review activities after they are completed, it is not connected to the watch in real time. It only connects at the end to upload the activity.
