Default [Q] Does it track calories/distance?

So I'm sort of interested in purchasing a Gear 2 Neo, and am always using runkeeper on my phone to track my distance, pace and calories burned and was wondering if the Gear 2 Neo can do the same?

I'm also curious as to whether it works with RunKeeper or not, as I like to track all my runs with it.

Yes, it can measure calories burned, heart rate, distance traveled, steps taken as well as speed.

As already mentioned above, yes it can. One of the included apps is called Exercise and it will track your running, walking, cycling, and hiking. I use this for my walking and running (on the elliptical) and it gives me: start time, duration, distance (miles), calories burned, avg speed, max speed, avg pace, max pace, and average heart rate.

Thanks for the replies. I read something about the tracking not being accurate due to not having GPS. Does anybody know how it compares to using runkeeper on my phone?
