FitBit Syncing Problems

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

There's definitely something wrong with the SparkPeople to FitBit syncing, so I'm recording all of my food and exercise at FitBit for now (I'm still here for the community). But there's no way I burned 500 calories in a 30 minute WALK. Anyone else having this problem?

    It is better to record all your food here on SP than FB as they use a different method of calcuating calories in and out than on SP

Also do not put them in both places as tat will cause you more issues between them

    My Fitbit is weird. Sometimes it does what I call "catching up" when all of a sudden it'll come up with some wild amount of steps that I know I didn't do that particular day and yet the days I thought I did the count was lower. Sooooo go figure : ) Maybe when I sync it and push the Fitbits button and it runs through all those numbers I'm setting off something.
I still like my little buddy though. It helps keep me motivated.
Stay healthy : ) and good luck with it. emoticon

    I think that mine is pretty accurate. I have been getting in about 10,000 to 12,000 steps each day and eating the amount of calories that SparkPeople recommends, and I have been losing weight each week. Don't forget, that over course of the whole day the Fitbit is counting for metabolism burn too so you will burn a lot more than just what you exercise. I always look at the Fitbit dashboard at my time active and it seems to be pretty accurate. SparkPeople only takes the Fairly Active time and the Very Active time, not the lightly active time so I don't think it is counting housework and stuff.
