Using Google Fit calories as energy goal
Hi everyone, this is my first post. I’d like to request a feature regarding energy expenditure calculation.
At the moment I get different energy consumption estimates from Google Fit and Cronometer when taking into account exercise:
As you can see in Cronometer I get:
BMR + Exercise = (1868 + 914) kcal = 2782 kcal
However in Google Fit the total calories are about 15% lower:
I suspect this could be due to an error in syncing Google Fit energy expenditure from activities. As described in the Google Fit API documentation, calories burned already include BMR, so there may be a partial double counting of Basal Metabolic Rate when syncing with Cronometer, leading to an overestimate of energy expenditure.
My feature request is the following: I’d like to use Google Fit total energy expenditure as energy goal (BMR+Exercise) inside Cronometer, instead of only syncing activity and adding it to Cronometer’s BMR estimate.
