I too would like to see MFP sync with Vivofit and Garmin connect! Please make it happen, soon! Love the app. bigsmile

I am almost to the point of returning my vivofit if it does not add a way to track my diet. I really love that it does not need to be charged and still syncs with everything, but find the need to monitor my calorie intake very very important.

I'm adding my voice to this -- want to see a Vivofit Sync from MFP.

(how do you "bump"?)

I think that you can sync Vivofit to Edomondo and Edomondo to MFP, not sure yet!

I agree fully. This is a deal-killer. I'll patiently wait a few days, then I'll interpret Garmin's silence on the topic as a resounding "no".

I only bought mine because the Garmin Vivofit website says it links with myfitnesspal! I got it today in the mail and can't figure out how to do it! Are they false advertising?!?

I would happily swap from Fitbit to the Garmin, I actually wanted to buy a Garmin GPSMAP 64 at the same time but I'm afraid the lack of an MFP sync is the deal breaker.

Emailed Garmin but I doubt it will make a difference, even if it meant a sale of 2 vivofits and a 400 quid GPSMAP device.

I too would love to see the vivofit pair with myfitnesspal!!

MFP please add the Garmin Vivofit to your repertoire of apps that can sync data as I've now had 3 Jawbone Up devices, Nike Fuelband SE and now the Garmin Vivofit! The digital displays are where the action is at, again please add this capability for Garmin's device.

I completely agree, we need MyFitnessPal to connect to the Vivofit!

Vivofit is going back if it doesn't sync with MFP. Time frame would suffice.

On a side note this is chance for Fibit to bring out details of an MFP linked Force 2 or new generation fitbit wearable, because its a race against time now if the Vivofit gets MFP intergration i'm moving.

Garmin leaves the Garmin Connect site open for export but it is up to third parties to create their own interface to get the data. Sites like DailyMile and Strava make the effort, others do not.

Even though I like the Fitbit one my main issue is with the battery until yesterday i was on my second fitbit one the first one the battery lasted less than a year the vivofit batteries can be replaced my second fitbit un-clipped and fell out of my pocket its gone so now I'm in the market for a vivofit I can't say I would spend the the money on another fitbit since you can not change the battery

I have used a Fitbit since December of 2013. I got a Garmin HRM in February and when they came out with the vivofit I got one. Didn't like it . Ended up sending it back. I think the Fitbit is better.

Use vivofit now, seems silly to have to use Runkeeper to sync to Mfp, doesn't it? Plus doesn't fitbit sync to mfp? If so, why doesn't/can't Garmin Vivofit?
April 17, 2014 1:13 PM
Agreed. Fitness bands with Bluetooth sync are so popular, the garmin Vivofit is now 2 months back ordered on and PLEASE SETUP SYNC WITH GARMIN!!!
April 20, 2014 9:44 AM
Please, Vivofit to MyFitnessPal

+1 on the sync

I've been using a Vivofit for about a month and it's my favourite tracker so far, after trying out 3 different Fitbit's and a Jawbone UP, so I'd love to see the integration.

When the fitbit force was recalled, I replaced with vivofit and the HRM blows fitbit out of the water if you train hard, cycle or swim.

That said, it won't be perfect until MFP syncs with it.

I would love for my Vivofit to sync with MFP. I looked at the Fitbit, but without the display or the HRM I am hesitant. I would love MFP which i have used for a while and am comfortable with to sync with my tracker. this would make my day.

Given up waiting, the snotty we'll pretend we are listening but we're not copy and paste email I got helped me on my way to picking up Jawbone up24. My fitbit one is being retired shortly to the cupboard as a spare backup after a few days of comparing and calibrating the up24.

I've just started putting all of my calories in a simple Excel spreadsheet that took me about 5 minutes to set up. "Calories in" number comes from MFP, "calories out" number comes from the Vivofit. I have it calculate the percent and I aim for around 15-25% deficit.

Syncing will be great when it gets here but this works for now.

It really would be nice to have Garmin Connect sync with MFP!

garmin watch users have been asking for this for a long time now...
