I currently use the LG health app for tracking my walks. I had switched to the advanced mode which let's you track the route, GPS, pace, mph, Yada Yada. On the basic mode, it records steps and distance and calories burned. If i walk on basic, calories burned is higher by a large margin. For a 10 mile walk at 4.0 mph, basic will show ~ 1050-1100 calories while advanced will be ~ 750 or so. My weight, height and such are entered. So I have been entering the lower of the 2 calorie readings. I just feel that the advanced mode is not accurate at increased paces. If i walk at 3.2 mph, the calories will be not much lower but I can tell you at 3.2 mph, no effort, heart rate is around 110, no sweat. At my pace of 4.0 to 4.2, I am burning much more. Heart rate is 140, I am clearly sweating.
What is anyone's experience with the map my walk app? Is it more accurate when factoring pace?
What would be expected caloric burn for a 262 lb guy walking at 4.0 consistent pace for 1 hour straight?
