Anyway calories aren't important, to be healthy and fit you should eat vegetables, fruits, meat roast or boiled (a lower fat type of meat especially) and sources of fibers, good carbohydrate, a diversified diet, but with lower amounts of carbohydrates and more protein intake, and do some exercises of some kind(diet it 75%, exercises are 25% as important). I'm talking about people who want to be fit and healthy, not about people who want to be the slimmest possible and unhealthy.
Well, the conclusion was quite obvious, because it is much easier to measure the heart rate than to measure exactly how much calories are burned and are not (only a fool/layperson will think/believe the contrary). They function just to have (give you) a general spectrum and not the exact measurements. If you want so, go to a doctor/nutritionist/specialist in the particular field, etc. But at least some of them were quite accurate, so good improvements.
I had 3 smartwatches (moto 360, gear S2 and Gear S3) so far and loved each of them.
I also exercise daily and heavily. Boxing and gym.
I had never measured calories lost even once! ahuahhauauha
I have used various fitness apps, for running, biking, and even tried sometimes use the watch for boxe training before the sparrings.
But I never tried to measure calories burned...
why there is no Garmin put to test?? Garmin is also one of the best wearable in the market
I dont even know whats the point of getting a smart watch , those casual watch are way more stylish and you don't have to bother charging it. Unless one day, someone build a hologram watch that can pop out the visual of caller face then I will get these called smart watch! probably 20 more years I guess

If you keep a exercise routine everyday and develop healthy eating habits, you'll never need any medical monitoring... needless to say smartwears only fill the maker's pocket while being of minimal use to the user

They inflate the calorie count to make their users feel better and in return the user will wear their product more. Simple, don't need a research team to figure that one out.
marketing fudging strategy
I do agree that heart rate accuracy has gotten really good on these devices but they overestimate the calories burned by a lot. As much as a thousand calories from a 3 hour bike ride.
