Energy Expenditure – (in Calorie/hr)
Average Stride Distance – stride distance (in ft or m)
Instantaneous Calorie Sum – weight adjusted total calories using current HR calculated every second. The calorie value is a sum one second of the Calorie Calculations for the entire activity. (Highly accurate)
Adjusted Calories Average HR -weight adjusted total calories using Average HR calculated using average Heart Rate
Battery Used – % Battery used during activity
Total Steps – total steps during activity (FUTURE)
