I do not like the new fitness tracker. I sometimes try different equipment at the gym and it was just easier, faster and more accurate to click on the picture of the exercise and equipment. I hate to be cynical but it makes me wonder if this is a manipulative way of getting more people to buy products like fit bit or spark apps that cost money. I really like spark and have had success since joining the site. But stuff like this, (making things inconvenient when there was clearly a more convenient way of doing it) makes me wonder.

I do not like the new Fitness Tracker! On the last revision, I stuck with the older versuiom with the small window. I could free enter my exercise and record the minutes. Then I could monthly review what I had done and separate out time for a particular class of workout that I need to report to an "accountability partner". The reports now only show the aggregate totals. That tracker was my most frequent reason for visiting the SparkPeople site. I an using my calendar on my smart phone which is unlikely to be arbitrarily changed without my controll for tracking now. I miss the easy time totals, but I can live with that. I can not use a system that does not let me see my breakdown. No your canned list does not have what I want. I have tried to get what I need from the new tracker and have not succeeded.

Hello,

Is it possible that you previously had an account with us and started a new one? The old fitness tracker is not available to new members. It looks like your account was established on Sunday so the old tracker would not be available under a new account.

Be well,
Kelly

Hi, I am unable to switch back to the old pop up version of the fitness tracker. There is no longer a button on my fitness tracker page on the right side of the page where I was able to do this before. Is there anyway I can ever switch it back again?
