I'm guessing my fitbit is syncing using his base station. My chair is less than 15 feet from his laptop. I thought it was a one to one thing (ie my fitbit would only sync to my base station) but it isn't a big concern. Actually, I don't mind if it wants to automatically sync without me doing anything. :-)

I think if you're within 15 feet of a base station, it will sync your FB to your account and his FB to his account. That may be why you're getting data uploaded in the middle of the day when you aren't around your own base station.

My ticker reminds me that activity, fitness and good health are a gift I'm giving myself. How generous will I choose to be this month?

You should be fine. When you set up your fitbit, it links your specific device to your account. That is why it has you enter the number that appears on your fitbit (referring to the set up I went through with my Ultra last year). There are two fitbit's that regualrly sync through my laptop at home and I only ever see my data on my fitbit account.

ETA:To answer your question. I am not 100% sure on the Zip, but I have has two other models of fitbit. The station may possibly allow any fitbit to sync. But since your fitbit iteselgf is synced to your fitbit.com account it should only be uploading the activity from your fitbit to your account. It may upload your boss's fitbit to his fitbit.com account if he is close enough to your base station/dongle to sync as it should be uploading any data from his device to his account. I think you have to be pretty close to the dongle or bases station for a sync to automatically happen though.

When you set yours up it has your information on it so it should be syncing just to yours, not his. You might want to
1 check his just incase
2 Contact FB and ask if this is normal

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much

Does anyone know if the wireless base for the Zip works for any Zip or just the one you initially set up?
Im asking because my Zip is set up to sync to my home laptop which I turn off every night and I am not home all day. The last few days, my Zip has synced in the middle of the day (based on the number of steps recorded).

My boss has his fitbit sync station connected to his laptop at work so Im wondering if mine might have synced from that?
