Fitbit Weight Updates

Following the acquisition of Fitbit by Google, it’s their intention to merge Fitbit accounts to Google. It wouldn’t be surprising if this will also affect any integration with Fitbit accounts.

As you currently have an integration to allow users to sync their weight into Zwift, can I ask if there are any plans to update any of the other integrations to cater for weight, Garmin, Google Health etc.

I’ve seen a few feature requests having been archived but no definitive answer as to future development in this area?

Just to mention; I’ve moved my fitbit account over to google (during the process you get to keep / disconnect any of your existing data connections) and updating my weight in the fitbit app correctly updated it in zwift.

That’s great, thank you so much!

It would be great to see direct weight integration with Garmin though, it feels like it’s been requested by quite a few people along the way…

Hi Colin,

Following your message I converted my fitbit account and it seems to have broken, cna I ask if yours is still working?

Oddly, I suspect there may be an issue fitbit’s end - Zwift is showing my weight correct from my previous weigh in on the 21st but not updated with the weigh in from today - but the fitbit app’s dashboard is showing my weight from last week, rather than the update I put in there today (though going into my weight’s history does show the recent update).

I’ve now force closed the fitbit app, reopened it and it’s showing the correct weight; when I’ve reopened the companion app it’s also immediately pulled my weight value through correctly.

Hey Colin, thanks for the update, I am inclined to agree…

I’ve managed to get my weight through breaking/fixing the connection I have to fitbit and all seems ok now… Still such a shame that we can’t get direct Garmin > Zwift update!

My issue I have is that the connection between Fitbit and Zwift keeps disconnecting all the time. It is like every couple of days my weight stops updating and I go into Zwift and check the connections and surprise surprise its disconnected again.

Strava, Garmin all remain connected its just Fitbit

Same problem here. The last connection remained for 14 days. Very disturbing.

What’s funny is I just checked my connection and its only been 2 days and its already disconnected again

I have the same problem. My Fitbit connection to Zwift just keeps dropping after only a day or two.

Same here, please Zwift do something!
PS : I’ve migrated my FitBit account to Google, maybe a reason of it?
