Nokia Health Step adjustment online9134 — May 08, 2018 01:50AM PDT

I have synced Nokia Health to Myfitnesspal for my steps. I have two problems:
1) As I walk to work, the app then assumes that I will be this active all day and gives me a large calorie adjustment
2) At the end of the day, no matter how active I have been, the calorie adjustment is removed - including a day which I spent walking over the weekend!
I have set my activity level to sedentary.

Can you help?

Thank you for posting your question. If you click on the Nokia Calorie Adjustment line in your diary, and then on Extra Calories Earned, we can look at the Nokia calories vs the MyFitnessPal Calories Burned. In order to see an adjustment the Nokia number must be higher. When you add a individual exercise entry, the program replaces your tracked activity and calorie burn with the calorie burn from that entry, to avoid receiving double credit for the activity. In your adjustment detail it gets added to the MyFitnessPal number, since it was not tracked by your Nokia device, reducing your Nokia calorie adjustment by the amount of your individual exercise entry. If this makes the MyFitnessPal number greater the adjustment will go back to 0 until the Nokia number once again passes it, however, if you look at your calculation at the top of the home screen, you will see that you are getting credit for the individual exercise entry there.

Kind Regards,
MyFitnessPal Staff
