Burned Kcal X Fitbit calories

HI, I'm wondering why the calories showed on Burned Kcal is always a 200-300Kcal higher than what shows on my fitbit. Is this normal?

    @CBasilio Your watch is using it's own data (movement tracking, weight, height, heart rate, exercise, etc.) to determine your calorie burn. Cronometer allows you to choose a baseline activity level and manually input activity (or have it pulled from your device).

    It sounds to me like you might have Cronometer set to "sedentary". I'd probably change it to "none" since your watch is accounting for all forms of physical activity.
