I ended up unlinking my accounts for the same reason. I just go in and manually enter my exercise on SP. I think it is great for so many- but for me, I didn't like it looking like I was exercising when I wasn't.

Failure Isn't An Option If Success Is Just A Matter Of More Effort!!

I delete what is synced from fitbit to sp. I don't pay attention to the error message.

I know what you mean---that part of it is not very accurate. I keep track of real exercise on My goals---one of my teams has a minute challenge and I put them on there.

So, I've noticed that Fitbit tracks my steps and SP puts all of them in as exercise. This means I get an error message almost all the time that I'm "exercising too much for calories eaten", plus it skews my exercise minutes so it looks like I spend all my time exercising. This is nice, I guess, but I wanted to keep track of my actual exercise, not every minute I walk down the hall...! I like counting the steps, but how can I avoid all that?
