Active calories in watchOS5

Has anyone noticed watchOS 5 tracking active calories (the “red ring”) more aggressively than prior versions? I have seen my counts go up noticeably, and I haven’t made any changes to my exercise routine - in fact, the higher counts seem to be happening when I’m not exercising. Only change is that I have updated to the latest version of watchOS. (I’m using an older “series 1” watch.)



I’ve noticed it as well. I’m hoping the old version was under counting. :slight_smile:


I had the opposite with the previous version, where Exercising was being tracked too easily… See in the Update notes they tried to fix this, and maybe this is the result??
