Does Samsung Health factor in calories I'd be burning anyway?

Hi all,

 

I've got a Galaxy Watch3 and am wondering if when it records a workout are the calories logged those that are burned on top of what I'd be burning anyway?  E.g. a 1 hour swim shows 600 calories, is that 600 calories of pure exercise or 500 calories of exercise and 100 calories that my body usually burns in an hour?

Thanks

I THINK that it calculates calories, even when you are sleeping. 

I haven't looked recently, but I think that if you look tomorrow morning, before you have done anything, you'll see the calories burnt overnight.. either Samsung health or Google Fit, or both, but I know that I've seen it before.

Hi, please check if there is any update for the app, also please reset your watch and check if it helps. It is recommended to reset after a backup of the data. Otherwise, it will erase all the watch data.

Here are the steps to backup your watch data:
Go to Settings >> Account and backup or account and follow the on-screen instructions.

Here are the steps to reset the watch:
Go to Settings >> General >> Reset.

Thank you.
