Influence of profile information on data collection accuracy

User profile information is maintained in Fitrockr and sent to the Garmin device during pairing process. The following information is influenced by the personal information provided in the Fitrockr user profile:

Distance is influenced by user height as it determines step length. 

Resting and active calories burned is influenced by the combination of user age, gender, height and weight. 

If above user information is unknown, please fill in realistic average dummy values (e.g. birth year = 2000, height = 180 cm, weight = 80 kg) if profile is maintained by administrator or researcher. 

Alternatively, Fitrockr Hub can be configured to request users to maintain their own profile information.
