What is it?

Knowing how many calories you burn gives you the power to make informed decisions about  nutrition, weight management, and performance. How many calories you burn varies based on your personal background information and the intensity of your physical activities. Physiologists measure activity intensity in terms of the amount of oxygen your body is using. This is because oxygen serves as a catalyst in your body’s aerobic energy production process. It also allow intensity to be expressed as a percentage of your VO2max fitness level, which is important for understanding how your efforts relative to maximum capacity.

Key Benefits:

  • Based on the single best indicator of activity intensity
  • Personalized to match your unique physiology and activity levels
  • Accurate across the full range daily activities and intensity levels
  • Responds quickly and reliably to changes in intensity
  • Accurate within 5-7% of laboratory measurements

How does it work?

While heart rate alone can offer some insight into the number of calories your burn, it can also be misleading. This is because your heart rate is not influenced solely by the intensity of your physical activity. Stressful situations, for example, may produce an elevated heart rate, but that doesn’t mean that your body is burning calories at the same rate as during exercise.

The calculation Firstbeat uses to provide accurate calorie counts relies on a combination of heart rate, respiration rate derived from heart rate variability, and a third variable provided by the Firstbeat analytic engine that allows the model to reliably detect current oxygen consumption as it corresponds to the intensity of your physical activity.
