I think it is a fascinating question. I want you to know, that I have had a similar situation. I bought my new Fitbit Charge 3, but I could enjoy the purchase to the full. Why? Because I have had some problems with the possibility of calorie monitoring too. However, now, when I have already installed the function of monitoring the calorie burning correctly, I enjoy my new Fitbit 3 a lot. That’s why I decided to help you. 

First of all, it is important to say that Fitbit 3 has a lot of different and useful functions. Yes! I think that you know that Charge 3 has all the of the essential features that were on Charge 2.  However, there is a new one. It is swimming tracking. Also, Fitbit Charge 3 offers the ability to track jogging outdoors, jogging on a treadmill, walking, and weight training, etc.

Also, in a new version of this fitness tracker, has appeared a new target exercise mode. It allows you to set specific goals before training, and then track the progress of its performing already in the process of doing sports exercises. What is more, the company added the activity recognition function.  It helps for the Fitbit Charge 3 automatically start and stop tracking your workouts. You don’t need to select them manually. Without any doubts, it is quite fantastic!

So, to install the function of monitoring the calorie burning correctly, you need to choose your fitness-training. For doing it, you need only to scroll to the left on display. It will lead you to modes such as exercise, rest, timer, alarm, weather, and settings.

Here, the most crucial role for you will play the fitness training tracking function. Why? Because by doing it, you will be able to track the specific number of calories burned and the length of the distance traveled throughout the day correctly.

Hope, my piece of advice was helpful and useful for you!

Have a nice evening!
