You Can Now Connect Your Fitbit to SparkPeople!

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Monday, October 15, 2012


Good morning, SparkPeople!

Today we are THRILLED to announce that we have partnered with Fitbit, a market leader in fitness devices. Fitbit has a full line of tracking devices to help you automatically and wirelessly track your distance, steps, calories burned and even fitness minutes. There are a lot of fitness tracking devices out there, but some products stand well above the others. Fitbit makes it easy for people to get fitter and reach their goals—and that is why we've partnered with them!

Sync Your Fitbit to Your SparkPeople Account
Many of our members who are Fitbit users have asked us how they can import all their data from Fitbit to SparkPeople. As of today, you can do exactly that—simply and wirelessly! If you have a Fitbit that you want to connect to SparkPeople, visit this page for instructions. This process takes just a couple minutes.

Purchasing a Fitbit Helps SparkPeople!
If you don't have a Fitbit, you can purchase one using this link and SparkPeople will earn a percentage of the sales. The newest tracker, Fitbit Zip, is now available at a lower price point of $59.95.

Join the SparkPeople Fitbit Challenge!
To celebrate our new partnership, SparkPeople has created a fun new challenge that is open to all members who have (or get) a Fitbit and then sync it to their accounts. You can compare your step totals with other members—and even SparkGuy's and Coach Nicole's on our Fitbit Challenge leaderboards page. In addition, starting in November, we're running monthly contests to encourage you to use your Fitbit to get fit! Everyone who accumulates at least 60,000 steps per month (that's just 2,000 steps per day on average) will be entered to win a $50 amazon.com gift certificate. See contest terms. To enter, all you have to do is sync your Fitbit to your SparkPeople account using the instructions above.


We hope this will help not only members who already have Fitbits, but that this new partnership and challenge will "Spark" even more members to check out the great Fitbit devices that we love so much. We hope you enjoy this new functionality!

    I'm much to frugal to waste money on such things, but my adult children can't function without their cell phones, so I'm sure they can connect somehow with it. emoticon

    I'm a little disappointed because I purchased the Body Media device as promoted by Sparkpeople but it can't be synced with SP.

    I like that you joined forces with Fitbit. I haven't bought one yet, but may just get one now that you are connected. I really like the new zip one!

    I have been looking at buying a pedometer for a while now but couldn't really decide if I really needed it. I guess that if I can track my steps daily easily with the Fitbit then it is worth the investment because it will give me added accountability. I will be purchasing one very soon.

    That's so great! I had lost my FitBit and was about to buy a new one but was putting it off - now I am ordering it today!

I LOVE the FitBit but was too lazy to enter everything twice, so I was entering it all on their site and not here. SO glad for integration!

    Very cool! I'm not getting a FitBit as I get tons of exercise besides walking (in addtion to a whole lotta walking too), but this is a really great idea and a great partnership.

I think to make this better would be to partner up with iFit.com to track that amazing tool on SparkPeople. It tracks distance and calories burned when using treadmills, elliptical, and stationary bikes.

    Though this is a nice little gadget which may give some incentive to move, it isn't for me. Isn't this just a pedometer that syncs with your program?
