Is there any way to see my total calories burned for the day?

No, you can't. You just have to link this app with some other health apps like Google fit, S health, nike etc.

It's difficult to get accurate numbers for this. Even wearable tech that monitors your heart rate uses estimates, then adjusts for activity using other estimates... so many factors are at work.

Most systems, though, use your body weight, age, and a general lifestyle metric, like "sedentary, lightly active, active, very active" and you get a base number of calories you use everyday to just live. This is still an estimate, though. But it's somewhere to start. I've yet to see a calorie counting system that doesn't use this basic foundation. It's useful if you're tracking calories, so when you eat more or fewer calories and exercise more or less, you should expect a certain weight gain or loss. If you don't get the results you expect from the numbers, you can adjust the estimated values up or down.  Simple!

Myfitnesspal is a good app to start getting into calorie counting.
