  • Garmin connect double counting run calories.

    I've had this problem for a while, I was wondering if there was any way to fix it, or just prevent it from happening.

    Once in a while, Garmin connect just double counts the run calories by adding the steps calories. Just now, I came back from a run, and there's about 500kcal from it. But Garmin Connect also counted 400kcal for the steps, which sets the active calories to 900! Usually it knows where the steps are from and adjusts the active calories count, but it double counts download link

    I've seen to notice it happens when I pause the activity in the middle, not sure if that's just confirmation bias.

    Is that a common thing? Has anyone figured out how to stop it from happening?
