Why am I not getting an accurate Count of calories burned when I'm wearing a heart rate monitor?

  • I'm wearing a Bluetooth heart rate monitor. It connects just fine. But I don't seem to be getting a read on the calories burned. Before I start the work out it tells me an estimate of how much I should burn, but by the end of the work out it tells me I've burned exactly what the estimate was before I even started working out. This is obviously not accurate. Also on the iPad app on the bottom right-hand corner where it says calories it always says zero. Why am I not getting an accurate calorie burn when I'm wearing a heart rate monitor? Thanks

    Using a bluethooth heart rate monitor, last iphone version of the app and streaming the video via apple tv I always obtain 0 calories burned during the workout (but I am sure the heart rate monitor works because I can see my heart rate on the second screen). Something doesn't work! Please update the app!!!

      I have the same problem. I've tried signing in again on roku and ipad, re downloading app, etc? The app shows me moving through the workout, but no calories burned...a flat line moves across the bottom of the screen. For awhile, each workout had me burning 2 or. 3 calories, the it went to showing nothing, though it says it's connected. It worked when I first got it but then quit. They could work on that and also a way of recording your progress on workouts time, frequency, calories burned etc. that would be motivating.

      I guess nobody from dailyburn really cares about this issues, I have the same problem! The whole idea of it should be to see your realtime statistics! really disappointing from DB!
