BikeRadar Training - Activity Calories Question

Hi All,

Noticed something odd with the computed calories when uploading an activity. I know the calories figure wont be total accurate etc. but what I find odd is that when uploading a .TCX which contained heart rate data (same symptoms without) then it does the following.

Session Type = Commute, calories = 550
Session Type = BMX, calories = 2,230
Session Type = General, calories = 1,370

So what gives. I've added my weight in my profile, it has heart rate data available so why does it compute the calories so wildly different depending on the session type.

There may be a good reason ?
