The nutrition tracking only works in one direction- from our site to theirs, not the other way around.

If I log food on my Spark account it shows up on my Fitbit account, but not visa versa. What am I doing wrong?

Hi Lois

If you want to SparkMail me, I can help you get back into your old account. So when your Fitbit syncs, your data goes to your daughter's account? Is that correct? If so, that means you connected your Fitbit to hers instead of yours. You'd need to disconnect it, and then connect again within your account.

My daughter and I have bought the flex and hers syncs everything. When I enter my food in SP it loads into her fitbit, but not mine. I have reloaded and it didn't help. I had another account, however I have no idea what the e-mail was or the password to delete it, can anyone help me?

X,

We checked your account and it shows that we are sending that data to Fitbit, so there must be something happening within your Fitbit account, but I’m not sure what would cause that on their end. I tried it on my account and it was sent over to Fitbit right away. It does show that it’s sending your nutrition tracker data, but we don’t have control over what happens after it is sent. I think you will need to check with Fitbit’s support to see if they can help.

Sorry about that!

I also have purchased a fitbit and cannot get my SP food to sync. I have set my fitbit food settings to anybody, I have set up a fitbit account on my computer and an app on my iphone. I am currently tracking my food into SP, but it will. not. sync. I have clicked on the sync button in the fitness tracker several times. I have connected and disconnected the fitbit and SP syncing several times. I am SO frustrated that I am ready to convert to myfitnesspal because at least there, I have some technology support. Fitbit was supposed to send me an email to tell me how to do this, but they have not. Very discouraged. I have been all over the internet searching. It all leads back to the useless syncing page. Sorry for the negativity, but I have spent HOURS on this today :( I really want to keep using SP

If you hover your mouse over the "general workout" entry, a reclassify button will pop up. Click that, then you can select what you did from the list of options.

Since the tracker has to detect at least 10 minutes of continuous movement to count it as a workout "event", my guess is that your DVD doesn't have you moving constantly- which is why it only recorded 21 instead of 30 minutes.

How do I track my extra fitness - weights or a toning DVD. I have a Leslie Sansone DVD (Walk it off in 30 days). The DVD is 30 minutes of burn (cardio) and 30 minutes of firm (some walking, but more of toning workout). I am moving for 30 minutes, but not "walking" the entire time. How does the spark activity tracker track this? My tracker indicates 21 minutes for a "general workout" - I assume that this is when I'm doing more firming work (since the straight cardio is the first few minutes). I assume, again, that it's showing up as a general workout because the tracker doesn't know what type of "workout" I was doing.
On my Tracker Details screen, there is a link to manually enter additional fitness activity. I think I can pull most of the moves from the DVD from our exercise library to create the "workout". If I manually enter this or even manually enter workouts with weights - no cardio (that I can also pull from the exercise library), will it appear that I did a double workout?

I think you have to manually enter workouts in our fitness tracker to have them go over to Fitbit. I don't think SAT entries will carry over.

Sorry about that,

I'm entering the data into sparkpeople and want it to sync over to the FitBit website. The food is syncing over, but the steps from my Spark Activity Tracker are not syncing over to Fitbit.

I have a spark people activity tracker but really want a tracker that will sync with my phone so that I don't have to wait until I'm home at night to check my data. I've ordered the FitBit Zip. I have linked by FitBit account with my Spark People account. I wanted to go ahead and sync my meals and my steps from yesterday. It shows my account is connected to my FitBit account, but is not syncing my data from yesterday. Is there something else that I need to do? OR is it syncing my FitBit to my Spark People and I want to sync my Spark People to my FitBit account. I would have thought it would have worked back and forth...Thanks.

I'm glad you figured it out! Our Tech folks just got back with me and said it looks like the foods you're tracking on SP are showing up on Fitbit, so it appears to be working correctly.

Second thought. Since the communication between SP andFB is website to website, How does FB know when and if to poll the SP website? Is there an SP update or sync command that needs to be given for SP to notify FB there is new info or vice versa, is there a update command within FB that needs to be set up to ask for data from SP?

I did the disconnect/reconnect and confirmed that the fitness tracker was updating from FB to SP on my fitness tracker.

The food I entered on the SP my nutrition tracker is not being picked up by the FB food log. This should be SP website to FB website as all my SP food in manually entered.

The only thing I am logging or entering is food on SP and activity on FB. The FB to SB communication is working but the SP to FB is not.

Hope you can help.

Thanx.

Can you try disconnecting your Fitbit from your SparkPeople account and then connect it again? Please let me know if that doesn't fix the problem.

I have synced my fitbit and my SP. My SP is picking up my fitbit activity info but my fitbit is not picking up my SP food info. From what I have read on the Message Boards this should be possible. How do I fix this.

After checking further I can't confirm there is any communication between SP and fitbit, even though I have confirmed I have set up the sync on theSP site.

My food is syncing with Fitbit seamlessly - but my water intake is not syncing. Drinking much more water is a new goal of mine and I would love to have it sync so I don't have to entered the information twice. Am I missing a setting to have the water sync also?

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.

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.

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,

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.

Sorry about that!

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

Actually I take that back! My sparkpeople nutrition did sync to my fitbit! I am very happy about that because I have loved using the sparkpeople app and did not want to have to track using fitbit app! Thanks Sparkpeople!!

does the nutrition really sync? Coach have you got it working? the link provided talks about fitness and weight syncing but not about nutrition. I also cannot get the nutrition to sync.

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. :(

Have you connected your Fitbit and SP accounts? If so, the food trackers should sync.

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

I don't think it's possible to sync your Polar with SP.

Sorry about that,

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,
