Hi all. I’m in maintenance and I count my steps. I lost weight using mfp set to zero activity, and then let my fitbit ad on extra calories. It seemed to work very well and was pretty accurate to my body for how many calories I expended vs took in.
For xmas i got an apple watch se. I really like the features. EXCEPT the steps counting with mfp. It seems really off. For example, on an equal steps day fitbit woukd have added on about 300-350 calories extra for me to eat. Whereas my apple watch added on 26. That is a huge difference for me especially since I’m short and mfp in maintenance only gives me 1200ish calories a day. So I rely on knowing my sreps to bump it up to 1500-1800 depending on how active I have been. The apple watch looks like I will be guessing.
Any thoughts on this and how to correct it. Or others that have had this comparison and how they went about it. Or maybe returning the apple watch for something else.....albeit I have an iphone and really do like the watch. And really don’t want to wear both devices at the same time. Meh.
Anyways, woukd love any input. Thanks.
