I have synced my Fitbit to Sparkpeople. When I go to log in my food on Sparkpeople the calories burned numbers are different than the ones on my Fitbit. Is there a way to get the .Sparkpeople tracking and the fitbit tracking to be the same? Almost everything else is. Thanks for any help.

I recently synced my FitBit Charge 2 with my Spark profile. I love that it automatically shares information such as my steps and calorie intake so that I'm not having to double enter that information in both apps. However, it also shares the calories that my FitBit says I'm burning during my "activity" throughout the day. I thought a certain level of this was already built into the BMR allowance on Spark. If I ate as many extra calories as it says I've earned, I would be gaining weight, not losing it! Plus, I don't feel I should be tracking my exercise now because then it would be double counting those calories burned. Is there a way to turn off just that part of the sharing?

my fitbit is linking but not sure I understand the info. I was used to the spark tracker which out my exercise in in one category. its putting everything in exercise and I know I didn't have that many calories burned which is messing up my meals. I am not sure how to figure out how many calories to eat or how many I have left

After 45 minutes on phone with fitbit it finally synced to the fitbit dashboard, haven't tried to sync here again as yet. After trying and retrying several times he had me take the battery out and put it back in and low and behold it worked. wrote down everything he had me do so I hopefully won't need the 45 minute call again. Thank the lord for speaker phones.

My fitbit zip is syncing with my SP start and fitness page but has not down loaded any step here or on fitbit page since about 2 this afternoon. This is getting frustrating I can tell you. Fitbit gadget says 7500+ steps my pages say 2500+ steps. emoticon

My fitbit blaze suddenly decided to sync with SP. I don't know how. I am just glad it finally did it. The only thing I recall doing is opening up and shutting down my fitbit app a few times.

I bought my Fitbit today, charged it and then went out the door. I love it, it's going to be the motivator I need. It scared the crap out of me though ... I was out hiking and just about home when all of a sudden my wrist began to vibrate... what was happening??? I take a look and it was telling me I had completed my 10,000 steps.. wow...
I'm really going to like this thing.

Kept trying with no success. Easier to just enter fitness minutes. That way it does not enter normal daily steps and calories. Love my new fit bit 2 in that as I am a couch potato it reminds me to get up every hour and move.

Nice to know it is not just me having problems. I got a new fitbit Blaze and was so disappointed. I needed a dongle as neither my computer (windows 8) or my mobile (Blu, not supported by fitbit yet per customer service rep) would work.

I got my dongle, but didn't know I had to use windows 10 yet. Finally figured that out. I left it alone for a few days due to frustration, and today, I was able to successfully update it. It is working, but I am unsure if it is working with spark yet.

I was surprised to see that it automatically had me join this team!

I just got the Fitbit Charge 2 and it syncs my activity with sparkpeople, but not my sleep. Does anyone else know how to sync it? Is this possible? My "sleep goal" on sparkpeople is empty, but my fitbit app is tracking properly for my activities/calories burned.

Does anyone know if it is possible to specify which fitness data imports from Fitbit? I want to important my step count, but not the "all-day activity." I've tried disconnecting and reconnecting them, but when I go to reauthorize, it just has a generic "activity and exercise" option. Any suggestions?

It seems as though the "all-day activity" is a double report as I believe SP automatically calculates calories for your BMR, correct? When I connected my Fitbit I started getting suggested calorie ranges between 2600-3100 daily, which seems ridiculous.

Bugs! Why does fitbit have to add the total calories burned? I would rather add this manually. Doesn't look like there is a fix for that. emoticon Got it! So happy I figured it out.

Had to disconnect device then when I re connected it I saw a menu for adding different things to sync to spark. emoticon

Well, now I can sync (very slow) with spark people on my desktop but not syncing with my mobile app. I have requested connection but they don't seem to be talking to one another, should be able to post food entries and exercise on either one and they sync with one another but that doesn't seem to be happening.

Wherever I go, that's where I will be.

I wish you luck. If it is only Spark it may be something they need to fix on their end. However,
I am confident if it is something to do with the fit bit the technicians will be of great help. Keep us posted.

Does it sync to your other devices such as your phone, computer, etc.? If it does, I would imagine it is something with Spark. Fit Bit has great customer service. You might want to talk to them. When my fit bit charge wouldn't sync to my computer the technician had me to download another program. It has been working since except I still have some difficulties with Spark.
I wish you luck!

It is the technology, not you, which is causing the re-addition of you to the team. You have cleared up a mystery for me. When I first joined the team I was again alerted I was a new member. I was having some difficulty with my fit bit at the time and re-installed a different program to make it work. This is probably the reason. Thank you for sharing your experience.

When I was having problems syncing fit bit (generally) the technician told me to plug it into the charger and hold the button in for 10-12 seconds until the version appears (v12). After that remove from the charger and sync as usual. It has worked for me. Probably won't work if it is a problem on Spark's end and it is syncing to home page and other devices.
It has been frustrating waiting on Spark sometimes.
I wish you and all fit bit users luck!

I wondered why mine wasn't syncing! I thought it was because I'd not realize I had to re-link it after getting a warranty replacement. (And that could still be it, but I just noticed this YESTERDAY.) So, um, thanks for the two new "welcome to the team" emails? :) I didn't realize reconnecting would also re-join me, but hey - glad to be back? :)

I restarted my fit bit blaze and then reconfirmed my fitbit blaze to sparkpeople. It then synced today. I guess I'll have to manually add steps and active minutes for the past few days. I thought that there is some way to manually since but can't find it. Anone know how
