Nokia Health mate - steps impact on calories Morora — May 17, 2018 05:20AM PDT


I've been using MFP for 2 months now and am very happy with the whole experience.
However, I've connected my Nokia Health app which I use with my Steel watch.

The issue is that, the days I walk +10K steps, MFP will decrease my calorie intake but when I walk less than 2K, it will increase the calories I should have.

I think the contrary should apply : Increase my calories intake when I'm active and vice versa.

Is it me who did not understand something or is the calorie calculation upside down ?

Hi there,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. Though you may have earned a certain amount of calories with your device, in order to see a calorie adjustment in your exercise diary, the number of calories your device projects you will burn for the entire day must be more than the amount of calories MyFitnessPal believes you will burn, based on your profile information.

Details about the calculation of any adjustment can be viewed by clicking the small “i” next to the adjustment in your Exercise Diary (on the full website), or by tapping the adjustment itself in the Exercise Diary of the MyFitnessPal on the apps (you may need to tap the adjustment in the diary and then again on the next page depending on your app version). If you do not see an adjustment in the cardiovascular section, then there may be a problem with the sync. However, if you do see this line, then it should be syncing correctly, even if it says 0.

It is also important to know, if you add additional exercise to MyFitnessPal, it will adjust the Healthmate calorie adjustment accordingly to not give you accidental “double-credit” for an activity. We hope this helps.

All the best,
