I know that it estimates your caloric burn based on your height, weight, and activity level when you are sleeping. Usually when I wake up in the morning, my calories burned is usually a little under 200. I have found the overall calorie burn for each day to be accurate though!

I love my Fitbit too! Your body burns calories even when you’re sleeping or just lazing around – your basal metabolic rate is the number of calories that your body burns even if you were bedridden all day. I think it’s based on your age and weight, mine is around 1500 calories/day. So waking up having burned some calories is reasonable. (Sidenote: NEVER eat fewer calories than your BMR, your body will literally go into starvation mode.)

ohhsnap:  I’m glad to hear the calorie count is accurate! (I have a Fitbit Flex though.) I’m always excited to see I’m burning around 2400 calories per day, but I have to wonder if that’s true because I should be slimming down pretty quickly at that rate and I’m not losing a single thing. That’s a frustration for a different thread though.
