Link MyFitnessPal and Fitdigits

Fitdigits is now partners with MyFitnessPal, and we could not be more excited! All you have to do is link your Fitdigits account with MyFitnessPal, and you will be able to see your Fitdigits calories count towards your daily allowance from MyFitnessPal. To link accounts:

1. Open Fitdigits and go to Menu > Partners > MyFitnessPal
2. Tap “Link Account”
3. Enter in your MyFitnessPal username and password, or link with Facebook
4. Tap Allow, and then tap Done

Now, after you complete a Fitdigits workout the application will automatically send the amount of calories you burn to your MyFitnessPal account!

If you also have a Fitbit or other daily activity partner linked (for the sake of this discussion we will use Fitbit as the primary example), we have found that linking Fitdigits with Fitbit, then Fitbit with MyFitnessPal is the best way to link the three partners. If you try to link them a different way, problems will occur:

1. Link Fitdigits with MyFitnessPal, and MyFitnessPal with another Daily Activity Provider (Not recommended)
You will need to take your Fitbit off when using Fitdigits, or you will get a double-dose of calorie adjustments – Fitbit giving you “some” credit for the exercise (especially if running or walking), while Fitdigits also would give you total credit for the exercise. Also, when MFP posts activity burn to Fitbit, it doesn’t transfer the distance. The worst part, though, is that if you don’t wear Fitbit while exercising/running/walking, it means you wouldn’t get credit for the steps you do during those exercises and that is probably the biggest bummer!

2. Link Fitdigits with BOTH MyFitnessPal and with another Daily Activity Provider (Not recommended)
If you want to live in a world of delusion, this will give you a huge caloric intake capacity as it will double your calories everywhere you look and give you a false sense of accomplishment on a regular basis. However, we have found living in a world of delusion, while fun for a little while, can have results that don’t exactly match the real world!

  1. I don't see health partners.. are we unable to link now?

  2. Just wondering if this works if one's Fitbit and Digitfit accounts are already linked, and the MyFitnessPal is linked to the Fitbit. Will the interfaces between all these application work properly if I were to add a direct link between Digifit and MyFitnessPal?

    • I just saw a note in the article above: "If you also have a Fitbit account, we have found that linking Digifit with Fitbit, then Fitbit with MyFitnessPal is the best way to link the three partners. If you try to link them a different way, problems will occur." That answers my question.

  3. Ken McLemore says:

    Must not be on the free version? Under health I see no link to health partners.

  4. Stephen Seligson says:

    I have read on other places on your site and other sites that the best way to link is to link digifit to my fitness pal and link fitbit to my fitness pal. However in this article you are saying to link digifit to fitbit and fitbit to my fitness pal. I keep reading different opinions on this. Driving me crazy.

  5. MyFitnessPal does not show up as a partner in the current version of DigiFit. No way to link. Is there a fix or was MyFitnessPal dropped even though the link to it is advertised as a feature?

  6. Elizabeth Dolinski says:

    now as there is Misfit Shine integration, does the same equation work with Misfit Shine replacing Fitbit? (i.e. links working the same way?)

  8. I have the free version and I'm linked to each how this article says. In the app under settings there should be an option called partner setup. I hope this helps.
