Sooo started running again a few weeks so I bought an apple watch to keep track of distance/speed etc.
I also use it when cycling to work and skating.
Its raining rn so I browsed some workouts on my phone.
 I skated a couple hrs yesterday and according to my phone I burned about 1300 kcal during that time! A fifteen minute run burns about 200, riding my bike to work a 100.
Is this possible?
Does anybody else track their skating?
What kind of readings do you get?

last time i skated it was for 30 minutes and i burned almost 400 calories, compared to cycling id have to ride like 8+ miles to get close to that. skating keeps my heart rate consistently higher for longer.

Fitness trackers are notoriously bad at estimating burned calories and an irregular activity like skateboarding would probably confuse the fuck out of the algorithm. My Garmin uses HR to estimate my calories burned during skateboarding and my HR is very low unless it is hot as fuck and therefore I burn almost no calories skateboarding ...

I'd think if you had something that's tracking your heart rate it'd be semi-accurate, but if it's just tracking your speed and thinks you are running 15 mph than it's obviously not going to be accurate.

Nah it does monitor my HR, not sure how accurately since its from the wrist. I do get a pretty high heartrate coz I pretty much skate nonstop, and try to do as long lines as possible.
When I set it up for skateboarding it said something along the lines of it being comparable to mild jogging, so the numbers really confuse me.
Maybe its bullshit, maybe not.

Last skate session was 45 min, was just doing basic pool carves, and coping stalls, very little breaks in between.  484 cal burned.  I get the same for a 45 min workout on the stationary bike

stationary is different since youre constantly pedaling, i have a trainer and average like 160/bpm heart rate when im cycling on that, but when im actually riding around its way less and why i burn like 100 cals in 3 miles

not really if your changing the bike tension throughout, also the peloton bike is pretty good with the apple watch sync, i tend to assume the values are good enough since im not training for Tour de France.
