Nutrition section not taking into account kcal burned from workout only steps

    Withings ignores workout calories burned (in my case, gym weights) when calculating the daily caloric expense. It takes the base rate and only adds the calories from walking/running, but ignores the other workout calories -- even though it shows them in the stats! That's why this is not reported to MyFitnessPal.

    This is bad design and should be addressed. Not a big problem for runners, perhaps, because their running will increase the step counter anyway, but gym/HIIT/team sports this is just unacceptable.

    Fix this Withings.

    EDIT: Mobile app for Withings works correctly though! The bug concerns the Web App and the consequent data supplied to MyFitnessPal via API.

    Almost a year later and still the same issue?

    I have several activities (manual input) with hundreds of kcal burnt and nothing is showing in kcal from activity in the nutrition tab - neitehr on the website nor in the app (as opposed to that mednigints is reporting.

    I was about to buy the new ScanWatch, but their app and cloud integration is just so horrendous (this bug hiere is only another nail in the coffing...) that I am likely to go for Galaxy Watch instead. Sorry for that, would really prefer the Withings product.
