I have a similar question. Do we need to separately track exercises that don’t generate steps?

For example, when I use a stationary bike while wearing my Fitbit, it doesn’t generate many steps but I’m definitely moving muscles and my heart rate goes up. Is that already captured in exercise calories burned or do I need to add it as an additional activity?

Sorry, but does anyone know when it comes to your Fitbit syncing with exercise minutes and calories burned if you need to also log in separately your workouts?
Does it keep track of miles done on a walk?

Hi SUNSHINEROSE3,

There are generally 2 reasons why your step data might not match.

1) If you manually enter steps on Fitbit, those will not sync to SparkPeople. We only use steps that were tracked on your device.

2) Your device has not synced all your steps to Fitbit's backend system. We get data from their system and not from your device nor from their app. It is possible for your steps to sync to the Fitbit app and not to their site. You can check on that by logging into your account at fitbit.com.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you want me to check anything else on your account. If there is a particular date where you want me to try to verify your step count, just let me know.

HI, I noticed that my Fitbit and SparkPeople doesn't match. My Fitbit is saying I have a lot more steps then what is showing on SP. Is there anything I can do to get them the same.
I'm new with Fitbit, so it's all a new to me.

Thank you

Spark Merle, My new Inspire HR has been synced and been listing everything since I got it and first synced it with SP. The other day for several days it just wasn't recording my steps on SP. I kept working with it and nothing. Finally yesterday, it came back to working as sneakily as it quit working....lol It was tracking on my watch but not SP. All okay now. Thank for your response.

ELLYMOUSE,

I know you asked a while ago; but, in case you still are wondering about that: If the calories burned number that syncs from Fitbit to SparkPeople includes those workouts, then you should not manually enter that same workout here on SparkPeople. That does result in double counting, which you do not want.

Hi NANFACEMIRE1,

Is it working for you now? I checked your account for the past few days and see your Fitbit has synced steps to us. Usually, if steps are not showing on SparkPeople it is because your Fitbit has not synced to Fitbit's backend system. Your data has to sync and display on Fitbit.com (not just to the Fitbit app) before it can sync to us.

I hope all is good now.

Any suggestions.....
After i first synced my new Fitbit Inspire HR to SP, all worked fine. Now for some reason my steps are not adding to my account or showing on my mobile app. I did the "reauthorize" but that didn't seem to help. On my phone, it just continues to say "syncing".

Hi Everyone!

I was wondering if anyone knew if the calories burned is being doubled on SparkPeople because of duplicate info from my fitbit?

Example. I logged a workout today burning 215 calories directly onto SparkPeople; my All Day Fitbit activity includes that workout and therefore duplicates the calorie burn?

My Fitbit Charge keeps dying on me. I charge it and and it works for awhile and then stops. i am thinking about sending it back to the one who sold it to me. I have to manually add my steps in and then just put down how long I walked in Sparks.

Hi LARRI2010,

The Fitbit connection with SparkPeople is still alive and well. I checked your account and can see we are reaching Fitbit and I can see your steps, etc. there. However, we do not have authorization to sync your activities over to SparkPeople so that is why you are not seeing that data. Please go to this page ( www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/
connect-yo
ur-device.asp
) and click the button to reauthorize the Fitbit connection (don't disconnect it). Be sure to accept all permissions needed--at a minimum, allow profile, device, activities, settings. After you do that, your data should start syncing to us again.

Please give that a try and then let me know if things are not working better for you after about 15 minutes.

Syncing to Fitbit seems to no longer be an option. It shows that my last sync was 7/17. A week or two ago, there was a sync now button, which I clicked. 12 hours later, after nothing happened, I clicked it again, only to get the message that I had already clicked it and that it would sync within 10 minutes. It still hasn't synced.

Today, there is no longer a sync now button. I can't find any information on how to sync nor how to link/unlink Fitbit. It's all gone.

What I DO see is My Fitbit Results page. With no results.

Did Sparkpeople discontinue linking?

My Fitbit One stopped syncing to SP about a week or so ago. I just couldn't figure out what was wrong. I did all on SP that I could find to get it to sync......but it did not. My daughter suggested I Google how to sync Fitbit to Spark People. I did what it said and it put in all of my info correctly. I sure hope this "One" doesn't quit since you can't get it any longer.

Hi DIAMONDWIFE2018,

I see you reconnected SparkPeople to Fitbit. That typically pulls over current data only. I went into your account and manually synced it for the 9th and 10th. You should see that info on your SparkPeople account now.

Hope this helps!

That's a good question. I have android and did it through the SP app but if the app on your phone is having issues then you might need to reach out to SP to see what they reccomend.

How do you unconnect and reconnect? I can't find anything that will let me do that on the SP website, and when I touch the app on my iPhone, it tells me the developer needs to update the app to work with the current version of the iOS. There's no update on the App Store, and no new app to download. Appreciate any hints.

I unconnected my Fitbit from SP and then reconnected it. It took a few tries but eventually that day did show. I'm not sure why SP is having an issue with Fitbit at the moment. Might be from the update that Fitbit did.

My Fitbit is also not syncing to Sparkpeople. Problem started 8/8 midafternoon, and I have been unable to sync since despite repeated attempts. My Fitbit dashboard is up to date, but SP is capturing none of it. Any advice?

Is anyone having issues getting their fitbit to sync to SP? My steps and exercise haven't been logged since 8/9 (even after going to my fitness page and syncing and then going to fitbit details and requesting a sync).

I have a Charge 3 and have been very happy with the way that I can use the SparkPeople nutrition tracker and it syncs with the fitbit. However, I am not seeing a way to have the water intake sync, so I have to add it each day to both places. Is there some way that I am missing to have water intake automatically synced (either direction would be fine with me)?

I just got a FitBit Choice 3 and am figuring out how it all works, but I did get it set up with Sparkpeople, which I was very happy to see would synch with as I have been using Sparkpeople since about 2012. It seems to be working and synching ok.

Hi, I just read your problem with syncing. I too just got a Versa. What I found was that if I wanted my fitbit to sync with SP, I had to turn the bluetooth off on my cell phone - so it would not confuse the watch and then I went on SP on my ipad. From the “my trackers- exercise” page, I believe, I told the SP app to sync with fitbit (there was a place there to click on that command). It took about 5 minutes to sync, but it did work. Once I had to tell it to sync (as mentioned above), and the “sync requested” seemed stuck, so I turned the ipad completely off, then back on again...and it synced. Hope this helps. Also, I opened the fitbit app on the ipad and made sure my watch synced with that app.

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.

I finally got things working. I am only using a phone so what I did might not help. Fitbit had me sign out of acct and force stop the app, turn off phone , restart and sign back in. All suggested by Fitbit support.

Furthermore Sparkpeople had me reconnect the Fitbit with my Sparkpeople acct. The customer service was awesome. Since I was doing on my phone it was tricky but working now..

Best thing I suggest is contacting customer support. Good luck.

I need help. I have a Fitbit One but I just got a new computer over the weekend and for some reason my Fitbit hasn't synced since Monday at 9:56. I can't get it to sync and I've been kicking butt this week! What can I do to get it to sync?

I have a Charge2. I have not had any steps synching since last Monday. I contacted both FitBit and Sparkpeople and have uninstalled reinstalled unpaired repaired until my eyes got crossed. Fitbit says it is Sparkpeople's problem and, you guessed it, Sparkpeople says it must be Fitbit. I am about to give up!

I switched from Alta to Versa on Friday. Everything synced. On Saturday nothing tracked on Spark People, it says 0, after I had seen 6000+ steps on my fitbit app and Versa.

This morning still no communication with Fitbit on SP. I tried syncing several times and downloading the app on my phone.
Frustrating!

Going to try to delete the app and reinstall through Fitbit to see if that fixes the syncing issue

UPDATE: It worked!

Anyone know how to sync fitbit steps to spark people. I can’t seem to get it to sync on my fitness page. I recently changed spark user name. Thanks

I just bought a fitbit charge 2 from my grandson and I would like to know how to sync it to spark people. Any suggestions?

Two things:
1st: I wish to no longer have Garmin be my steps counter under my fitness. I removed myself from the SparkTeam and the step update page still shows the Garmin update.
2nd: How do I get my new Fitbit to show my steps on this site?

Hello, all! I recently started a membership at our local YMCA. My DD used to work there and got a free membership while working there. She got interested in doing the classes because DD's BF's Mom is a fitness instructor.

So, tonight I will be going to a class called 'Strength Training'. It is a class working with weights and a step. It is one hour. Some of the 'movement' of course, gets tracked with my FitBit HR, but it doesn't actually track the whole hour. If I add an hour of ST to my FitBit Tracker (which should then transfer over to the SP Tracker), wouldn't I be double-counting some of my exercise??? Or, should I just do that and not think about it too much???

Yes, I noticed that too - that my workout calories are not correct. My workout today on my fitbit was 342 Calories - one HIIT class.

Spark says 703 or so. I have no idea where this number is coming from. It's annoying me. :-)

Did you ever get this figured out.? it is pretty frustrating to have it work one day and then not the next. Should I have to ask for sinc every day or does once do it.

You might try uninstalling the Sparkpeople app on your phone and reinstalling it through the Fitbit app.

I have a Droid phone.

Download he Fitbit app to your phone. Open the app and go to the dashboard. (It looks like a little credit card in the upper right hand corner). Scroll down to Compatible apps and select Spark People. Say download. Then open the SP app that you just downloaded and follow the prompts. Easy Peasy!!!

Good luck.

Would you be willing to post the steps on how you got the Fitbit to sync with SP? I just got a Fitbit Versa and would love to figure it out. I'm a little overwhelmed right now trying to track everything!

I had a fitbit one and it still has a display but it won't link to anything on line anymore not even fitbit. I just got a charge 2 for mothers day and it syncs to fitbit weight watchers and sparkpeople. No problems.

I just synced my Fitbit with SP. I don't know how exactly it works but I figured it was easier than going to both sites to track the same things.

My steps sync with no problem using Charge 2 but cannot get my weigh in on my Aria scale to show up on Spark. I always have to manually change it.

I'm going to piggyback on CLCHASE - anyone modify the exercise calories? It brings over way more than my exercise calories. I love that it syncs steps and food, but the calories it says --- it's really all day not just exercise. Thanks.

Happy this thread is here, so I'm not overly worried about my new fitbit not syncing with Spark just yet. I'll be patient and wait for someone to work it out.

What can I do for myself today?
