    Garmin Training Center vs. Strava calories burned

    Found something interesting this weekend, although data taken from a road ride, I found quite a discrepancy between Garmin Training Center and Strava.

    Uploaded a 55 mile ride to Garmin TC and calories burned were 4200, uploaded same route to Strava only 2300 calories burned.

    I'm gonna go with Garmin TC

    Anybody else see this and can offer an explanation?

    Meaningless

    Meaningless. I get vastly different calories while simultaneously using Garmin 705 and 800 on Garmin connect.

    like Wherewolf said, it's exactly meaningless. You cannot directly measure calorie consumption. the best you can get is to compare two of the same rides at the exact same place and get a vague idea of which ride burned more calories (but not exactly how much).
