Integrate your Fitbit Tracker with MyFitnessPal

We're very pleased to announce that we've partnered with our friends at Fitbit to integrate the Fitbit Wireless Tracker with MyFitnessPal.  The Fitbit Tracker is the perfect companion to MyFitnessPal.  With a Fitbit Tracker, you can track a huge variety of aspects of your daily activity, all seamlessly and automatically, with a device about the size of your thumb.  All you have to do is attach your Fitbit to your belt or throw it in your pocket - that's it!  Just by wearing it, you'll start tracking all of the following statistics:

  • Daily steps
  • Distance walked/traveled
  • Floors climbed
  • Hours slept
  • and most importantly, calories burned!
Because the Fitbit can detect how much you've been moving throughout the day, it can provide a more accurate estimate of how many calories you've burned for the day.  By integrating your Fitbit Tracker with MyFitnessPal, we'll automatically adjust your nutrition goals based on the calorie burn data from Fitbit, allowing you to be sure you're creating the calorie deficit you need to reach your weight loss goals.
 
So how does the integration work?
 
  • If you don't already have a Fitbit Tracker yet, you can buy one directly from Fitbit.com for only $99. 
  • After you've received your Fitbit, visit our Fitbit page to connect your MyFitnessPal account to Fitbit.  You can find it by clicking on the "Tools" tab.
  • Once your Fitbit has been connected, just start wearing your Fitbit, and sync it periodically with it's wireless base station.  Data from your tracker will automatically be imported into MyFitnessPal, and we'll adjust your calorie goal accordingly. 
Just wear your Fitbit, and keep logging your foods and exercises on MyFitnessPal - we'll take care of the rest.  You'll automatically get the benefit of Fitbit's seamless tracking while continuing to use MyFitnessPal in the same way that you've come to enjoy.
 
If you have more questions, we've created a new set of FAQs for our Fitbit integration, as well as an official Fitbit Users Group where you can receive tips from other Fitbit users. 
 
Thanks, and happy tracking!  Hope you are all enjoying MFP.
 
Mike, Al, and the MFP team
