THIS APP DOES SYNC - It just started this week!!!! happy happy happy happy happy happy happy


That's right. The calorie burns reported are 60-80% too high, and every time I've linked Endo to MFP, Endo has reported the wrong exercise. I've unlinked it, and am now firmly in the 'Be careful what you wish for' camp.

I'm experimenting with setting my weight in endomondo lower than it actually is to trick it into giving a similar calorie burn result to my HRM - not sure if it'll work or not but it's fun to try and I like the Idea of getting it syncing automatically to mfp.

just to let everyone know that when you link this it will work or show your workout when you download it to endomondo and it then sends it to mfp I have been using this for about 3 or 4 days and wow it is better than having to put them in yourself so well done mfp

I too had the wrong exercise show up when it synched. I got an answer back from tech support and they told me to be sure height, weight and timezone were all the same in Endomondo. I guess somehow that affects time exercised and speed ( I am skeptical)? So I did. And now it doesn't sync at all anymore.

I think this is an awesome feature; however, I have noticed that the calories burned for an activity are different between endomondo and mfp by a lot. Which one is correct?

It synched correct calories burned, but wrong exercise pace. I think I may "un-synch" until they work out the bugs.

Call me vain, but I'm working really hard to speed up my run pace and it pisses me off to have it posted slower. That's an opposite nsv.

the time-zones matching is most likely so that the "activity" you do gets logged to the correct day, if your day ends 2 hours earlier on MFP then a late day workout would risk being applied to the next day throwing off that days calories with the too high sync from mistimed events.

I have endomondo set to my goal weight. I feel much safer eating to those calorie counts.

As for the link, it logs me on MFP as playing mini golf (instead of walking and pulling clubs) but the time and kcals seem OK.

Yes, there is definitely a time zone effect. My early morning run today got captured in yesterday's exercise count. It didn't get reported in my newsfeed at all. Bit upsetting, as it was an 8 mile run grumble

Edit: Probably my bad, as my timezone was set to the wrong zone. I'm sure I did set it when I first registereed...
