Get recorded in Health if the Apple Watch is calculating that?

Where can I look at my resting calories?

Good question. Why are they not recorded in the Health app?

Heart rate shows in Health app.
Active calories show in Health app.
Why not Resting calories??

Maybe they don't record because they're horribly inaccurate and Apple knows it, and doesn't want to mess up your Health app with crap data (though now that the HR only measures when you're resting, that's horribly inaccurate too).

Apple calcs resting calories based on height and weight and they're basically a guesstimate.
