Double import Fitbit activity

edited January 8 in Help

I have my activity setting set to 'none' to avoid doubling up on the BMR calorie burn count, but I notice that all my fitbit activity is being counted twice. For example; overall 'fitbit activity' = 91 minutes which consists of 61 minutes walking and 30 minutes calisthenics, which are then also counted separately.

Is there a way to fix this double counting of activity? I tried deleting the overall activity entry but of course it reappears when the apps sync up.

Thanks.

  • Or maybe I'm interpreting this wrong - I see that the calorie counts don't add up so perhaps it's not counting the calories twice? Could you please confirm?

  • Hi JessicaB,

    This may be the difference between general activity measured by your Fitbit throughout the day and exercises that you tracked or were detected by your device. Though that would be a coincidence that the minutes for general activity and exercises were the same

    Can you compare these numbers to those shown in your Fitbit app?

    Best,

  • I have this same problem with my Apple Watch. It counts Active Energy but when I set a specific workout (like cycling) it will transfer over as separate activity but with the same amount of kcals burned and number of minutes exercised.

  • Hi @Cyn,
    Shoot us a message at [email protected] with both:
    1. A screenshot of your Cronometer diary
    2. A screenshot of your fitbit diary for the same day showing conflicting values.

  • How do I import yesterday's (the day before) steps/ activity from my Fitbit if I did not sync my Fitbit until this morning (the day after)? My cronometer log will not show my activity from Fitbit that I did yesterday. I forgot to sync my activity from Fitbit with Cronometer last night before I went to bed. I would like to capture and log the activity that I have done. Is this possible to go back and get my activity tracked from my Fitbit synced with Cronometer after the fact. I don't have any issues if I did this yesterday. Any suggestions? Thank you, Sue

  • @SuKitch navigating to the day you would like to import data in your Cronometer diary should prompt import from fitbit

  • Hi Hilary, How? I am trying to figure that out. Sorry for not understanding. Sue_

  • Your diary will default to today, but you can choose to journal any day by using the right and left arrows on the green date icon to go ahead or back by one day at a time.

    Expand the calendar widget to select a specific day to open in your diary.

    You can easily navigate between years or months by selecting the double or single arrows at the top of the calendar.

  • I will try in a bit. I did go back and tried to import my Fitbit data but nothing happened. I am ok if I can not figure it out today. I will just make sure I synch my Fitbit with my Crono app before bed. Thank you Hilary!
