I have a fitbit zip. I have had no trouble with it, only time I had an issue was when the battery was low. I knkow the website has had a few problems several months ago, but once the site was back up it updated with my fitbit and I had access to everything again. I have been wearing my fitbit zip since the fall of 2010 and still love it. It has helped me accurately track and update my goals. I highly recommend it.

Hi I have the fitbit flex and I love it. I don't even notice it on my wrist. I have had other step trackers that attached to my pants and found they kept falling off. With the flex I have been very conscious of how many steps I do every day and my sleep habits.

I have a Fit Bit Zip, there is NO WAY you can accidentally lose it, It clips extremely tight to your clothes. However, Fit Bit had a break down on their page and they took certain peoples badges and miles, they took 20 miles off my life time. I am handicapped and I worked HARD for the miles I had! I no longer trust Fit Bit's page.

I want feed back on the Spark tracker and how accurate it is, can it come un clipped and be lost?

I do not own an iPhone or any android device with blue tooth and I need a tracker that I can use with just plain Wi Fi on my computer.

Can anyone give me feed back on the Spark. I am just plain angry at the Fit bit people, and their faulty page.

I am researching extensively for a Wi Fi device only or maybe just a plain old pedometer.

I use a walker 24 -7 to walk, so a wrist type device will not work at all. The Fit Bit only registers half of my steps if I walk, as I was born with Cerebral Palsy, and walk with a limp. It does register every step accurately if I "jog" or run, as much as I can with a walker.

I'm having a difficult time with learning the Spark Page and was a member before, but deleted my account because of the not user friendly page. I had to start all over and I couldn't get my old user name back. Every thing has changed on this page in four months. The page alone is stopping me from buying a Spark.

I need help and info. I can't afford to make another mistake.

This is one burned out Fit Bit user! emoticon

I was going to try the fitbit zip as I have an activity tracker from spark and now it has broken twice. The first time it was replaced but now it is the "dogle" that plugs into the computer. So I would have to buy a new one. I have only had it since January this year.

Any thoughts on fitbit zip vs. fitbit flex?

If you've linked your FitBit to SparkPeople there is no need for any further tracking.

I have a question. I think Fitbit really overestimates the calories I burn. I'm very active throughout the day and my step (after a work out on top of that) ends up being 8-13 miles. This is messing up my nutrition goals and makes SP want to set it up way too high. I really, really wish it were that way but I simply can't eat that way and expect to not gain, let alone lose weight. Anyone else having this issue?

Plant strong as of 01/25/12.

WENDYSIAN, it sounds like your settings are wrong on your fitbit account. Go to your fitbit dashboard, there is a little gear icon in the upper right of the browser. Click on that and choose "settings". One of the options is whether you want to use pounds or kilagrams for the weight. Another is inches/feet or centimeters. Make sure you chose the correct ones.

I was on SP a long time ago, and then I got my Fitbit, and I stayed on that site, but I am coming back to SP to utilize both. Hope I can meet some SP that want to become workout buddies and motivate and encourage each other. emoticon

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.

Ok I see that I'm not the only one who realized that info from the FitBit hasn't been syncing automatically. I thought it was something I did and have disconnected and reconnected it trying to resolve the issue. I'm hoping this will be fixed soon.

I'm having the same problem. It just started in the last couple of days. It does seem to be getting the food just not the exercise. It does update it I click the sync for the day button but I've never had to do that before. Was there an update?!

May not be helpful to everybody, but I use the app on my iPad... I keep it on my nightstand anyway. So when I'm going to sleep you can click sleep, and when you wake up you can click awake. I've forgotten to click awake before, and it lets you go back nd adjust the time that you actually get up. Not sure if this works the same if you don't use an iPad?

I'm going to try to get a hold of someone today about replacement - glad they have such great service reviews!

Sleep Tracking....

Anybody notice that their Flex accidentally goes into sleep mode when doing other things that might tap it? It's odd, at night when I go to bed it generally takes 2 or 3 attempts to get it into sleep mode but while awake a slight tap might put it there. It happened to me yesterday and I didn't even realize it until I logged on to FitBit this morning. It said I logged over 11 hours of sleep and was awoken more than 50 times. The odd thing is that it put me in bed at 2:04 in the afternoon so 11 hours would have brought me to awake around 1:00 AM. At that time I was definitely asleep and in bed but it brought itself out of sleep mode. Does anybody have any tricks or advice to offer so that this doesn'' happen again?

Wow, Buffalo you got through by phone? When I was having issues with mine last month they did replace it but everything had to be done through e-mail. As a matter of fact, there was a statement on their website that said they do not provide telephone support. Either way, I have to say that FitBit's customer service is top notch.

I bought a Fitbit and loved it! I used it every day at work, when exercising, and when I was sleeping. It seems to have shorted out though - I've got it on my To Do List to call the manufacturer... anyone have this issue?

@MEREDI The Fitbit tells you how many calories you have burned that day, not just the ones you burn during your steps. You burn calories just by sitting---all of the functions of your body take calories too!

When you sync your fitbit to your Spark page, it will show you how many calories the steps themselves have used.

If you have formed the habit of checking on every new diet that comes along, you will find that, mercifully, they all blur together, leaving you with only one definite piece of information: french-fried potatoes are out. ~~Jean Kerr

I sync mine with Spark and just record my steps, which works well for me because walking and stair-climbing are my main forms of exercise. If I do 20 minutes of upper body work, though, I record that seperately, so I get credit for exercise that isn't step-based.

Hi, I just noticed your post, so if you don't already have the answer: I have a force so I'm thinking it might be the same way. On the fitbit app on my phone, I click on "account;" scroll down to silent alarms and click set new alarm.

I hope this helps.

I found the problem. First I had to link my accounts. Once I did that, the box that you were talking about appeared. I never knew I could do this. This is a great option. If anyone needs the directions on how to link accounts, I found the directions on one of the technical pages. Once you get there, the directions are posted and you just need to click on the link and it will bring up information to connect the two accounts.

Now my tracker shows up on my fitness page. This is great.

I have a fitbit Ultra and I really love it. I feel silly I just can't find it, but I trying to find the box that says to sync to fitbit. I went to the Fitness Tracking Page, I am on today's date. I just don't see the box. If anyone can help guide me.

I'm sure it's right in front me.

Thanks

Funny thing, mine was synching automatically but not since I commented here that it was. I wonder if one or the other of the sites is having some sort of an issue, hmmm?

I love my Flex! but I just noted that it isn't synching to Sparkpeople? I reset everything but no change. Im bummed. I really dislike the fit bit food log!

Things I need to do today:

2. Breathe out

Sami17, I have been able to sync for previous days.

- Go to the Fitness Tracking page.
- Change the date to whatever day you want.
- There is a small box that says "Fitbit Tracker"
- On the right side of the Fitbit Tracker box is a link that says "Sync Fitbit for Today"
- When you click the Sync link, it should update for that day.

I was able to sync the whole first week of January this way, going backwards day by day. Hope that helps!

Agreed... I don't think it should be so hard to find out how to link the two. But it seems to work great once you do it. Does anyone know if you can sync the next day if you forget to do it at the end of the day?

For those of you who are looking for the link, I will repost...

I didn't even know we could sync it to spark people. How do we do that? It would be fantastic to be able to do so because fitbit doesn't have to great of a site for the food areas or anything!

After being on "hiatus" from diet and exercising for a month due to a family emergency I am trying to get back "on track". I was walking 4 miles a day and have lost weight on my Tony Gazelle(easy on my bad knees). I treated myself to a Fitbit One and having trouble. I sync it with Spark and set my stride. I am only 4" 11 1/2 ". I just walked 1/2 mile on it...10 minutes. My number went from 900 to 1038 steps on my Fitbit One. But I counted how many "steps" it took. Now on a Gazelle you slide your feet back and forth so I count "a step" as one complete back and forth motion which I took 66 steps per 1 tenth of a mile = 330
steps" for 1/2 mile. ( A person might think of it as 66 steps x 2 since it goes back and forth) Well anyway fitbit has it as only 138 steps instead of 330.

Anyone have any ideas how to keep track...I have always manually entered my miles walked on Spark with minutes and calories burned. When I do that now, fitbit also enters min. and steps walked so I have a overlap even though there steps come up "short". If I don't enter manually I won't get "much credit" for my 4 miles. Then I totally don't understand calories burned 901??? I don't burn that many walking 4 miles!!!

HELP!!!!! I actually walked about 950 miles in 2013. My goal was 1000 until the family emergency!

Thanks, antiquegma

No matter how slow you go...you are miles ahead of those sitting on the couch!

I just got a fitbit flex this week and am loving it. I am finding that it really motivates me and causes me to keep better track of what I am eating, and calories and such! I feel less tired because of the tracking and such. I definitely get more steps in during the day because I am so motivated by the fitbit flex. I love it, and would definitely recommend it!!!

I am confused, was thinking about getting a fitbit, but if I stick it on my shoe, how does it know what my arms are doing, and if I attach it to my upper body somehow, how will it know what my legs and feet are doing?

To put your flex into sleep mode you need to tap it for a couple of seconds until the 2 most outer lights flash. When you wake up in the morniong you will do the same to take it out of sleep mode. Wish I could help with the alarms but I haven't figured that one out either. Did you download the manual? I have, but really haven't had the time to read over it yet?

I'm curious as to how to set my fit bit "flex" up for sleep mode, how do I know it's in sleep mode? Also how do you get the alarm to set ??? Can't figure those two items out

Thanks

I'm trying my new Fitbit One and love how small it is.

Plus I'm trying to get out of the Fitbit site because my personal e-mail is being overran with messages.

I've now un-joined the two chat sites and un-friended my ladies; hope that's the solutions

Thanks for posting that link! I recently returned to SP and have been searching for how to link my new fitbit to SP. It used to be really easy, but not any more. I wonder if they're trying to downplay Fitbit since they have their ow SP activity tracker? Not that I mind--I'm all for capitalism!--but it was a bit confusing that I couldn't find what I needed.

A year from now, would you rather be saying "I'm glad I did", or "I wish I had" ?
