How are calories calculated in the Wahoo Fitness App?

Calories in the Wahoo Fitness app are calculated using an algorithm.  The calculation is different for men and women and is calculated once per second:

 

Men

  • calorieBurnRate = abs(((0.6309 * newHeartrate) + (0.09036 * weightInPounds) + (0.2017 * userAge) - 55.0969) / 4.184);

Women

  • calorieBurnRate = abs(((0.4472 * newHeartrate) - (0.05741 * weightInPounds) + (0.074 * userAge) - 20.4022) / 4.184);
