Calories burned Fitbit VS Cronometer way of?

Hi there!

So i linked my Fitbit charge to my Cronometer account and set my activity level to ‘none’ in Cronometer so it could import my activity from Fitbit. When i do nothing at all, the total calories burned register pretty much the same on both apps. However, today i went on a half hour run and the total calories burned are way off. Fitbit says 2500 while Cronometer says 3000. I know it’s not the BMR because both Fitbit and Cronometer have almost exact same BMR calculated for me. What causes this? How can i fix it?
Should i unlink them, put my Cronometer activity back to ‘light’ and put in my workouts manually from Fitbit to Cronometer?
