Is the statement of energy consumption including basal metabolic rate or is it a net additional consumption?

Hello Martin,

please check the existing answer here that may give you a detailed answer.

Shortly: yes, consumption should include your basal metabolic value in both methods app use for computing (with known and unknown heart rate value).

Hello Menion

Thank You for the link. The clarifications are sufficient in any case.

Best Regards

Hello menion


What do you think about giving user the possibility to calculate the energy consumption by themselves, using die built-in variables of locus?

Hello Jörg,

I really hope, this won't be necessary :). If there is a known verified method that gives a good result, we can discuss it of course (maybe better in a separate topic) ... thanks

As I remarked this summer, there are sometimes unlogically results. I don't declare, to know how to do it better, but I would like to improve some different ways to calculate this, only using existing variables.

Don't want to stress you, I think, this can displace a little part of your work into the community.

Hmm, based on different support where one user found that also some tracks has problems with energy computation, I've found a minor issue that caused huge values for tracks, that had a "pause" inside.

Issue will be fixed in the next app version, sorry for that.

About user-defined algorithm > I've already few times before desribed steps I do in the app so it is not a secret. Mechanism is anyway too complex to let user write algorith in some text field, sorry.
