I have had several fitness trackers, (Fitbit, Apple Watch, Garmin etc), and they all seem to have very low calorie calculations. Ie, the tracker will report 300-400 calories burned in 50 minutes. I check the results with several calculators available, and I will get 500-600 calories for the same average heart rate. Why the discrepancy?
