I was thinking more of the basics like correct weight and activity type. None of these Apps are going to estimate a 1200 calorie burn for a slow 20 mile bike ride. Not unless it was for an elephant!...

I can only imagine his input data to the App was complete garbage. No way is it going to estimate a 1200 calorie burn for that sort of effort. Maybe it thought he was running, lol

I don’t know what the Wahoo App uses for estimated power. Maybe it just uses a generic calorie burn per hour number for each type of activity. I’ve never used the Wahoo App myself.
