You don't need a pulsometer, pedometer or a GPS to know how many calories you burn.
The app is equipped with a number of useful calculators: body fat level, bmi, heart rate, training zones, vo2max and more!
First of all, I appreciate the information/notice given at the beginning: it's professional. I like the way the app is structured, how you can set goals and how there are clear and concise explanations on how to lose weight. Also, I like how they calculate how many caloric intake you need to gain, maintain, or lose weight, assuming the intensity of our phyiscal activitiy.

Moving is health
One of the best things you can do for your health is to start some sort of physical activity; this does not need to be something big. We created this app to make this task easier for you. The app will help your burn calories and lose weight and fat easier, and is especially helpful in assisting you to develop the good habit of systematic physical activity.
Being active keeps your body in good condition and healthier. However, not everyone likes, or is able, to run, swim or do other endurance sports which are generally useful in burning calories and fat. Also, not everyone owns a pulsometer or other special device.
Therefore, this app does not require any additional equipment, such as a pulsometer, pedometer or even using the GPS localization services on your device. The app is amazingly simple to use: just select an activity, tap the "Record" button and watch how many calories you are burning!

Basal metabolic rate
Metabolism refers to the processes that the body needs to function. Basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the amount of energy expressed in calories that a person needs to keep the body functioning at rest. Some of those processes are breathing, blood circulation, controlling body temperature, cell growth, brain and nerve function, and contraction of muscles. BMR affects the rate that a person burns calories and ultimately whether that individual maintains, gains, or loses weight. The basal metabolic rate accounts for about 60 to 75% of the daily calorie expenditure by individuals. It is influenced by several factors.
Basal metabolism is usually by far the largest component of total caloric expenditure. Energy expenditure is mainly a sum of internal heat produced and external work. The internal heat produced is, in turn, mainly a sum of basal metabolic rate (BMR) and the thermic effect of food. External work may be estimated by measuring the physical activity level (PAL).
Physical exercise is important for maintaining physical fitness and can contribute to maintaining a healthy weight, regulating digestive health, building and maintaining healthy bone density, muscle strength, and joint mobility, promoting physiological well-being, reducing surgical risks, and strengthening the immune system. Some studies indicate that exercise may increase life expectancy and quality of life.
People who participate in moderate to high levels of physical exercise have a lower mortality rate compared to individuals who are not physically active. Moderate levels of exercise have been correlated with preventing aging and improving quality of life by reducing inflammatory potential.
The majority of the benefits from exercise are achieved with around 3500 metabolic equivalent (MET) minutes per week.
For example, climbing stairs 10 minutes, vacuuming 15 minutes, gardening 20 minutes, running 20 minutes, and walking or bicycling for transportation 25 minutes on a daily basis would together achieve about 3000 MET minutes a week. A lack of physical activity contributes to approximately 17% of heart disease and diabetes, 12% of falls in the elderly, and 10% of breast cancer and colon cancer.
