Got my Series 4 this weekend, and I've noticed that active calories in the activity app are way too high - basically double the rate as my Series 2, significantly inflating my burned calories number. Is there any way to fix this or is it normal with an AW taking a while to properly calibrate?

Also try recalibrating. It will be calibrated for your old watch if you installed from a backup

It happened to me but just for one day. I manually deleted the entry on the health app, I saw they were registered twice for the exact same minute. I restarted my watch and phone and everything came back to normal.
