Hope you found your fitbit. I have a flex and it does tend to want to fall off. I just use a small bit of adhesive backed velcro on the inside of the bands to help hold it on. It's saved me from losing mine several times. I do have to replace the velcro when the adhesive begins to wear out. But it works well so far. A .5 yard of adhesive backed velcro goes a long way.

If you connect the two accounts, they will sync.

I just ordered a fit bit a couple days ago. It should arrive today. Are y'all saying that it doesn't sync properly? I had a SPAT but it fell off of me somewhere & I can't find it.

Do you have your Fitbit connected to your SparkPeople account? If so, when it syncs your data from your Fitbit will automatically be uploaded to your SP fitness tracker.

I believe that's correct. When you make changes on SparkPeople, that doesn't communicate back to FB.

Sorry about that,

I can get my nutrition to sync from SP to FB, but if I make a mistake and have to change something on SP, it does not update FB. Seems to only sync the first entry of an item, but no correction of servings or deletes. Is this how it's supposed to work? If so, it's a pain.

Hi Charlie, SP nutrition goes to FB and FB activity and sleep goes to SP. FB calculates calories burned when you workout so don't double add the entry with an additional activity on FB or SP (if that makes sense).

Hello! I am a long time SP user and got a fitbit zip a few weeks ago. I have the two accounts synced but I wounder..... what fitbit numbers are put into SP? My calories burned is extremely high (thousands more) compared to what SP would normally calculate (and my goal)and I am not loosing wait. I have not adjusted my intake based on the calories burned. I am not sure which info is best to use together.

Hi Vicki

When you sync your Fitbit, your nutrition data will go from SparkPeople over to Fitbit, but not the other way around.

I think SP and Fitbit have slightly different ways of calculating your recommended calorie range, so that's why they are going to be a little off if you compare the two.

I just got my Fitbit on Sunday!

Does anyone know if nutrition and water syncs from fitbit to SP? Ie if I enter nutrition data on fitbit will it appear on SP? I know it will sync fitness, weight and sleep but not sure about nutrition.

Also I am still having trouble adjusting the data so that they are mostly in sync, for example SP thinks I need to eat more but fitbit says eat less. I saw the post about double entry of the exercise so I took that out but it is still way off.

First world problems! :)

I checked your account, and when you sync your fitness from the Fitbit automatically records in your tracker. So you wouldn't want to add that 25 minutes on the elliptical unless it wasn't captured on your Fitbit, because it would be double-counting. The 41 minutes is what Fitbit is recording as your workout, and so that's what is being downloaded to SparkPeople.

Hope that helps,

Coach Jen

I have the fibit flex and the exercise tracking is totally off. Example I entered 25 mins on the ellitpical manually yet the Fitbit synch is showing an addtional 40 mins. Its totally throwing off my tracking. Any ideas of how to correct this? The fitbit plays much nicer with myfitnesspallon that end.

It's all or nothing, so if you want to sync your fitness, your food will sync too.

Lifeinosage,

I see that you have 4 SP usernames on the same email. Even if you no longer use those accounts, check each of them to see if you have that account also connected to Fitbit. If you do, you should disconnect all of them except the one you want to use. We've had problems with other members' data when they had multiple accounts connected.

On the Fitbit side, are you looking on the "Food" tab in the "Log" section, and not just on the dashboard?

Thanks,

Coach Jen

I tried uninstalling and then reconnecting. My fitbit numbers are syncing correctly on my Fitness page. Nothing under nutrition shows up on FB.

Life is like a camera, just focus on what's important and capture the good times, develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, take another shot.

Is your fitness syncing between the two? You might try uninstalling and then reinstalling it to see if that helps the connection.

I am also having issues with SP/FB syncing. I have both sites set to sync with one another however it hasn't happened. It is quite discouraging actually as I don't want to have to manually enter my nutrition in two sites. I will most likely give up SP since I have bought the FB. :(

Hi - thank you for the link to sync SP with FitBit.

I have been successful in syncing my fitness activity but not my logged nutrition (I am trying to upload my SP nutrition into FitBit). Do you have any idea what I need to do to make this happen? Thank you

Hello

As far as I know, we don't have any kind of relationship with LoseIt. So there's no way to easily transfer any of your data from their site to ours. I also don't think there's a way to only sync specific things (like just fitness and not nutrition data) when you link your SP and Fitbit accounts.

Sorry I don't have any better answers for you!

I need some technical help with sorting out a syncing problem between SP, FitBit and LoseIt.com

For quite some time, I have been creating a database of Custom Foods at LoseIt.com. Also, I much prefer LoseIt's nutrition tracker, compared to the one at SP.

My nutrition entries at LoseIt are synced over to FitBit, so whatever data (lists of foods consumed and calories) I enter in LoseIt also appear on my FitBit page. [ There is some type of magical calculus that creates a “FitBIt Adjustment” on my LoseIt page.]

I really like the feature on SP that allows me to create Reports that show Calorie Differential Per Day and Calorie Differential Over Time. This feature doesn't work unless the calories consumed in a particular day are entered in the SP Nutrition Tracker.

Even though the FitBit Activity data is synced over to SP, and my LoseIt nutrition data are synced over to FitBit, the LoseIt nutrition entries do NOT transfer over to SP.

So in order to use the Calorie Differential Reports, I would technically need to RE-ENTER all that data from LoseIt, which would really be a chore.

So instead, I created a Favorite Food in my SP food list. I take my total calories per day from LoseIt and enter it as one food entry at SP. This allows the Calorie Differential report to function correctly.

My questions are these:

Is there anyway to sync my LoseIt data over to SP?

Is there anyway to sync the LoseIt data which has been transferred over to FitBit into SP?

Is there any way to copy my list of Custom Foods at LoseIt and paste it into my Favorites list on SP?

Another problem: When I enter the lump sum calories for the day into SP, this amount syncs back to my FitBit page, so that FitBit shows double calories for the day: both the food that synced over from LoseIt, and well as the lump sum calorie amount synced from SP. Is there any way to stop the nutrition data from syncing from SP to FitBit?

I would appreciate any suggestions as to how to resolve these issues!

THANKS,
