setting VO2 max on polar f6

I'm wondering if my settings are correct on my polar f6. I did a sitting test to calculate my VO2, and came up with 37. Other settings are
Resting heat rate 71

Concerned about the accuracy of the settings since I did my 3.5 mile run this morning in 46.25 minutes, and it said I burned 598 calories. This seems excessive even though I'm much heavier than the average runner. Before I changed this setting, I was getting a burn avg of 520. Must have something to do with the VO2 max change I entered, but thought the change would be downward in calories burned. Any idea how to properly set my f6?

    Should be about 500 calories. 400 from exercise after removing BMR. So something in your settings is off. I do know there is no way to get a proper vo2 reading from sitting. So that's for sure inflated.
