Goal calories

I never ended my workout this morning on my Apple Watch. 6 hours later it’s says I burned 1k plus calories. My fitness pal added this to my daily calorie allowance. I wasn’t working out for 6 hours but I still burned those calories. Aren’t those just calories I need anyway and are part of my goal without exercise? Isn’t it accounting for calories needed to just live twice?

    I have had that happen on occasion- lately the opposite is happening with watch questioning if I am working out- I have used my usual amount of calories for the exercise and considered the excess as my NEAT calories and do not eat them.

    Not sure how the apple watch works but I assume its like Fitbit so it 'know's exactly your movements and adds in the calories it deems you have used.
    If you know roughly your average TDEE anyway, you'll know whether the number given is close or way out.
