You can use that remove button, or you can click on the Fitbit entry and then reduce the number of minutes to what you want for any real exercise. I do love having it sync the steps for me.

I think I might try that. I liked the way everything else synced up, I just don't like the cheating on the fitness minutes.

do y'all just use the "remove" button beside the fitbit entry in the fitness tracker under My Exercises?

sbulla, how do you delete? do you just remove the fitbit entry from your fitness tracker?

twialq1 I definitely feel like I'm cheating.

Once I got my SP and FB calorie ranges synced, I pretty much ignore the SP fitness minutes since I'm not really doing anything right now besides walking.

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?

I just delete the fitness minutes fitbit gives me everyday. It's easier for me to do that than to manually enter the steps and sleep info.

a lot of people just take it off during certain exercise periods and then manually enter it for the calories burned portion

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

I have noticed this, too. I'm getting credit for exercise I'm not necessarily getting done. It kind of makes me feel like I'm cheating.

The last straw was getting a feed post for crossing so many fitness minutes... when I really didn't. I have not been doing any real official exercise, yet I keep racking up fitness minutes from my fitbit. I asked SP about it... if there was something in the works to differentiate the real fitness minutes from my regular activity minutes... and there is not. I don't think they (sp) actually understand the issue with the fitness minutes and calorie burn when fitbit is synced up. :(

So... today I unsynced. I will manually enter in my steps and sleep, but my fitness minues will be just that... REAL fitness minutes of exercise.... not just normal daily activity.

I will gladly sync back up someday when the daily activity minutes and calories burned can be seperated from actual FITNESS minutes and calories burned.

I still love them both! :)
