    Default is 400 calories I think, but what should I set it at?

    I set mine to 1000. Haven't reached it yet (636 yesterday) but I'd rather strive for a difficult goal than pat myself on the back at an easier one.

    Anybody know what defaults are if you don't set your height weight etc?

    Light? Moderate? Active?

    default is 330. I never changed mine and I never hit it lol. I somehow walk 5 miles a day at work, but usually hit 310 for calories burned. I need to exercise.

    I hit the stand goal, yay me!

    edit: I guess defaults could be based on height/weight.

    I changed mine to 700. Met it yesterday - can't promise I will meet it on non-gym days!

    Changed mine to 500. I drive around to different sites for work, now I have the Watch I am finding myself parking further away so I get to walk more to and from the shop! And when I got home today I was at 460 so I went for a long walk round the block to get my goal!

    It is awesome, beyond words, if a watch can make people lead healthier lifestyles.

    How many of you feel incomplete if you don't fill in all of your circles?

    Your heart rate is factored into the calories burned also. I walked 5 miles yesterday but burned 600 calories because my heart rate at some points were at 158 (uphill walking)

    My default with my age, height, weight inputted was 450 calories.

    Yesterday I did two and a half times that and today I did twice that without really trying, so probably will have to set it a bit higher.

    I seem to be filling up the exercise ring too - I don't really consider what I'm doing to be proper exercise, but I guess I walk fairly briskly and am usually carrying a heavy bag contributing to a relatively high heart rate!

    I may try the Workout app for 'Outdoor Walk' and see what happens.

    My default light one was 450. On a work day I seem to be hitting that without doing any real exercise so I'll probably up it to 600 or so and see how I go.

    I did the same thing a few minutes ago. My exercise was at 23 of 30 minutes so I went for a brisk walk around the block. Job done! This is the third day in the row I have filled all my rings! (I have set my calorie goal to 400 for now.)
