    I am noticing that when I am not wearing the band calories are still being counted. I went to ms store and they replaced. However new one is doing same thing. For example I did not wear my band last night and it reported 583 calories burned when I checked. This morning.

    Thanks.

    Pretty sure that is because the calorie count that happens during the day is an estimation done by an algorithm that uses your height, age, and weight.

    It assumes (quite rightly) that you will burn a baseline number of calories per day, and tracked activities are added on to that value.

    I don't think this is a fault. It is just how the band works.

    Somebody more knowledgeable can now step in and tell me I am wrong. :D

    Basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the amount of energy expended while at rest in a neutrally temperate environment.
    lstar337 is correct. In order to give us an estimated for total calories burned in a day, Microsoft must account for the amount of calories we are burning at rest, even when we are not wearing the Band. BMR calculators generally use age, sex, height and weight, to calculate this estimate.

    The time to worry is when your band shows no calories. It means you've joined the undead.

    Explanation makes sense , shame ms store did not know that . Replacement was what they offered me.

    heh, this is actually happening to my Band 2. My calorie count started registering stupid low numbers for all activity a few days ago. I think a sensor has gone kaput. :(
