apple watch workout is way off on calories

I've used the apple watch workout app and the approximate calories burned is way off from what it should be. Is there any way to calibrate it so it will be more accurate? It shows only about half the calories burned that I know it should be.

Favor from:

All workout equipment and sport watches are calculating your total calorie burn. But this is inclusive of RMR/BMR calories which you would have burned anyway. The Workout app reports active calories (exclusive of the above). The Activity app however shows you both active and resting calorie burned for total calories burned which is what you should be using if you want to compare. And of course you also have to calibrate those devices with your weight and age if you want it to at least estimate somewhat close.
