FitBit vs. MapMyFitness (conflicting information)

Monday, September 09, 2013

Today I wore my Fitbit for my morning wog (walk/jog). I also uploaded mapmyfitness to my Ipod touch.

I got very conflicting results.

Fitbit reads 5,271 steps and 2.18 miles.
MapMyfitness read 4.82 miles

Since I wogged in our local park and zigzagged all over the place, I can't run a map on Sparkpeople or other sites.

why such a dramatic difference? Which is right?

Tomorrow I will stick to the streets and see which is correct.

anyone else have a problem like this?

    It's the app that tracks the mileage by gps on my ipod touch. so it tracked as I did it.

    What a difference! Did you have one marked as both ways and one as one way? That is the only thought I have! (It's something I would do.)

    On map my fitness were you using a app that tracks the mileage or did you enter the map manually? If you entered the map manually did you uncheck the option (if there is one on that page) for there and back?

    Hope you get it sorted out soon.
