Get Improved Fitness Reporting in the App!

By , The Walter Cronkite of fitness reporting
Yes, it's true! We just pushed out another app update that will take your reporting to a whole new level. Provided, of course, that you track your fitness with a fitness tracker that's synced to your SparkPeople account.

As you probably know, SparkPeople makes it easy for you to seamlessly sync your fitness data to your account from FitBit, Misfit, Garmin and other devices. We also have tight integration with Apple Health and Google Fit for those of you who use your phones as fitness trackers. (For a complete list of all the devices and apps we sync with, click here.) Syncing this data makes tracking your fitness easier and quicker, but now it's even more useful!

Visualizing Your Fitness Data

With this latest update, you’ll be able to visualize your fitness minutes, calories burned and steps walked more easily.

We've built a new tool into the app that can generate bar charts to show you how you're performing over time, so you can see which days you knock it out of the park and which days could use a little work. You set the date range and it’s easy to see if you follow certain fitness trends over time.

You'll also be able to view your cumulative results, which is a great way to remind yourself how far you've come.

And, best of all, we can show you your own personal record--both for all-time and for the last 30 days. While improving your fitness doesn't have to be a competition, it’s nice to know how you're doing now compared with how you've done in the past.

It's Easy to Get Started

To start seeing these charts, all you need to do is connect your SparkPeople account with a supported device or app on this page. Once you do, you'll see a little logo of the device or app you've connected on the log screen, underneath the "Exercise" section. Click on it to see your reports. Keep in mind that this will only show if your device or app has tracked fitness for that day and synced that data over to SparkPeople.
