    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.
