I went from using the "loseit" app, to "myfitnesspal". I received an early Christmas gift of a 'fitbit ultra'. It's a wireless calorie, activity + sleep tracker that is also a free Iphone app. It measures steps & distance, calories burned, stairs climbed, sleep quality, and has wireless uploads along with online graphs & tools. I would ultimately like to use myfitnesspal for food tracking and activity and sync my fitbit to your program. The fitbit packaging says that it is compatible with myfitnesspal. I haven't figured out how to sync to your program yet. I am posting on the message boards to find out how. If I cannot sync my 'fitbit ultra' to myfitness pal, I will reluctantly have to make the entire switch to the fitbit program. Any help is appreciated!

I don't think they have fully realized this yet. I have a fitbit as well. Waiting on the integration. It's been a while and no real updates. I'm still using Lose it! but would very much like to use MFP. The fitbit integration is the only reason I'm not using it now.

Thank you Reesy! I will try to find out from Fitbit when their integration with MFP is going to take place. That was a big draw for me to purchase the Fitbit. If I find out anything, I will respond back to this post.

My question to Fitbit: When will fitbit be integrated with "Myfitnesspal"? I use Myfitnesspal to track my food and water intake. One of the main reasons that I purchased the fitbit was that on the packaging it showed that it was compatible with Myfitnesspal. If so, when and also how will it be integrated? Will I be able to sync the fitbit to MFP?


Fitbit's response: I'm sorry but a specific date of our partnership with MyFitness Pal has not been given to us as Myfitnesspal and Fitbit are still working on it.

Sincerely,
Rachel and the Fitbit Team

I just ordered one and the advertizing said you can sync it to MyFitnessPal.
At least I'm pretty sure that's what I read. I'm looking forward to trying it out
but disappointed if it doesn't sync.

Just checked MFP website: http://www.myfitnesspal.com/blog/mike
It states: "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."

If it could be posted when it will actually sync with MFP might consider buying. Would that be possible?
