HOW DOES GOBE MEASURE CALORIES BURNED?
Track calories burned every day. Energy output happens when your body uses energy. We often refer to this as “burning” calories. Even when you’re sleeping, your body uses energy to perform basic functions like breathing and circulating blood. The rate at which your body burns calories at rest is called your basal metabolic rate (BMR). If you set a goal (to lose weight, gain muscle mass or keep in shape ) you need to track calories burned every day.
GoBe uses FLOW™ technology to combine data from the accelerometer and heart rate sensors with an advanced algorithm to measure calories burned. GoBe uses an accelerometer to measure activity and body movement. This sensor counts your steps, as well as the distance you travel. It also uses a pulse wave sensor to measure your heart rate, so it can tell when you’re active and when you’re not.
