Hi Mia,

Sorry, but it doesn't work quite that way now. But, I can see where that would be a nice feature.

The only way to have your miles tracked in the Fitness Tracker is if you select the Mileage tab and enter your walks there instead of entering them on the 'main' Fitness tab or from your Favorites tab. You might give that a try and see if you like using that way.

About your calorie range increasing -- that will happen when you enter any fitness in the Tracker if you have your account set up so that your Fitness and Nutrition Trackers interact. You must have yours set up that way based on what you saw. The more you workout, the more you can eat and still get results. WooHoo!

Thx Merle,

I've already set it to register 18 miles each week, which I always accumulate. Trouble is the miles shown is 0/18 every week and 0 for 2013

Is there a way to show that my 8000 steps equals 3 miles?

in trying to program both miles and steps into the tracker, my calorie range shot up to 2250 :)

obviously I can work out the mileage for myself but it would be encouraging to see it all in print, both steps and mileage together.

Mia

Hi Mia,

If you track your walks and/or runs using the Mileage tab on your Fitness Tracker, your progress in miles will be shown in the gray area just below the "My Exercises" heading in your Tracker.

I hope that helps!
