Calories calculation weight bike+driver

I am a big fan of kinetic, great work!

I would like to know, if calories calculation considers also the bike's weight. In profile settings you can only configure a weight (bike+driver?).

Is (if available) haert beat measurement involved in calories calculation?

Thank you!

    Afraid not, it's a guesstimate the weight of the bike will have little impact compared to rolling resistance, weight of rider, sitting position if rider, etc, etc.

    We would like to use heart beat more in our calculations, but it's not currently used. If you can calculate your average MET then you can input that (and kinetic will calculate calories against time)

    Thanks for fast response!

    I apologize what do you mean by MET? Where do I have to input that value?
    Thank you

    Tap on the calorie module, you can choose activity type here or enter the metabolic equivalent value for you.
