Does this track calories burned in gym activities?
Just wondering if you can use this to track calories burned in a fitness class for example.

Yes you can. You can press the button twice quickly to indicate it's recording a workout.
From Jawbone's FAQ's:
Will it work if I cycle, do yoga, or other non-step-based workouts?
The UP app allows you to log the duration and effort level of a variety of different workout types, so you get credit and estimated caloric burn for non-step-based activities. Additionally, the UP band has a Stopwatch mode that lets you "tag" the start and end of your activity Once you've synced your band, you can enter the details of your workout.

Yes, though you need to tell it you're about to commence a workout or tell it afterwards between what times you were exercising. You can also choose from a list of activities (such as Yoga, weights, running etc) to better help it estimate your calorie burn.
