Calorie Calculations

Where does Xert get its calorie information from? Does it work it out itself or pick it up from whatever platform/source the workout or ride is from?

Unable to test what you’re asking about since I’m 100% Xert :smiley: but if you have a FIT file with calories from another source you could post it to Strava, note the number there, then import the activity into Xert and see if same figure or recalculated.
Here are related posts on how Xert calculates their number –

Thanks. Those links answered my question. Appears that Strava uses the same gross efficiency as Xert.

I followed the links, read the articles and posts and learned something today :slight_smile:
