Why does my fitness pal show double my Garmin run entries?

If you use a Garmin watch to track your runs, you may have noticed that sometimes your runs are doubled in MyFitnessPal. While we don’t have an integration with Garmin currently, there is a way to avoid this issue.

The issue occurs when you start a run on your watch, and then subsequently pause the run and save it. When you do this, the run is saved twice in MyFitnessPal – once as the paused run, and once as the completed run.

To avoid this issue, make sure that you only start and stop your runs on your watch. Do not pause and save them. If you do need to take a break during your run, simply stop the timer on your watch completely, and then restart it when you’re ready to continue running.

How can I fix this issue?

If you find that your Fitness Pal is showing double the amount of calories burned for your Garmin runs, don’t worry, there is an easy fix! All you need to do is go into the settings for your account and change the “Activity Level” setting from “Sedentary” to “Active.” This will ensure that your calorie burn estimates are more accurate.

What could be causing this problem?

If you’re seeing double the amount of calories burned and distance run in your Fitness Pal app compared to your Garmin watch, it’s likely that you have the “Enable Distance Tracking” feature turned on in both apps.

Here’s how to fix it:

In the Fitness Pal app, go to Settings>Advanced Settings> and make sure “Enable Distance Tracking” is turned off.

If it’s already off and you’re still seeing duplicated data, try uninstalling and reinstalling the app.

Is there a way to prevent this from happening?

If you’re using My Fitness Pal to track your runs, you may have noticed that sometimes your Garmin entries will show up twice in the app. This can be frustrating, especially if you’re trying to stay on track with your mileage goals.

So why does this happen, and is there anything you can do to prevent it?

Unfortunately, there isn’t a surefire way to prevent My Fitness Pal from double-counting your Garmin runs. However, there are a few things you can try that may help:

-Make sure that GPS tracking is turned off on your phone. This will help ensure that My Fitness Pal is only tracking data from your Garmin device.
-When entering a run into My Fitness Pal, be sure to select “Garmin” as the source of the data. This will help the app know to only import data from your Garmin device.
-If you notice that a run is being double-counted, you can delete one of the entries from within the app.

While there’s no guarantee that these steps will prevent My Fitness Pal from double-counting your runs, they may help reduce the chances of it happening.

How can I troubleshoot this issue?

If you notice that your Fitness Pal is showing double the amount of entries for your Garmin runs, there are a few possible explanations.

First, it’s possible that you have your Garmin set to automatically sync with Fitness Pal. If this is the case, you may need to disable this feature in order to prevent duplicate entries.

Another possibility is that you are manually entering your runs into both Garmin and Fitness Pal. If this is the case, you’ll need to be sure to only enter your runs into one platform in order to avoid duplicates.

If you’re still seeing duplicate entries after taking these steps, please contact customer support for further assistance.

What should I do if I continue to see this problem?

If you find that your Fitness Pal is still showing double the amount of calories burned from your Garmin run entries, there are a few things you can do to try and troubleshoot the issue.

First, check to see if there are any updates available for your Fitness Pal app. If there is an update available, install it and then check to see if the problem persists.

If the problem does persist, try uninstalling and then re-installing the Fitness Pal app.

If you continue to have trouble, you can try contacting customer support for either Garmin or Fitness Pal to see if they have any suggestions.

Is there a known issue with this?

Yes, there is a known issue with Garmin and My Fitness Pal where My Fitness Pal will show double the run entries that Garmin has.

How can I work around this issue?

If you’re seeing two entries for the same run in My Fitness Pal, it’s likely because you have your profile set to track both running and walking. To fix this, go to your fitness devices page and uncheck the “Running” option next to your Garmin:

Once you’ve done that, your entries should start appearing as just one activity.

What are some other potential solutions?

If you’ve found that your My Fitness Pal entries are different than what is shown on your Garmin Connect app, there are a few potential reasons.

One possibility is that you have My Fitness Pal set to one unit of measurement (miles, kilometers, steps, etc.), while your Garmin Connect app is set to another unit of measurement. To fix this, open the settings in each app and check that they are both set to the same unit of measurement.

Another possibility is that you have entered data manually into both apps, and they are not syncing correctly. If this is the case, you may need to delete the entries in one of the apps and re-enter them manually so that they match.

If you’re still having trouble getting your two apps to match up, you may need to contact customer support for either My Fitness Pal or Garmin Connect.

Have you ever seen this happen before?

If you use My Fitness Pal and have a Garmin watch, you may have noticed that your run entries sometimes appear doubled in the app. While this can be frustrating, it’s actually a fairly common problem that can usually be easily fixed.

There are a few different reasons why this might happen, but the most likely cause is that you have your Garmin watch set to automatically sync with My Fitness Pal. This means that every time you start a new run on your watch, it will automatically create an entry for it in the app.

If you want to prevent this from happening, you can change the settings on your Garmin watch so that it doesn’t automatically sync with My Fitness Pal. To do this, open the Garland Connect app on your phone and go to the ‘Devices’ tab. From here, select your Garmin watch and then go to the ‘Settings’ menu. Under ‘Data Sync’, make sure that ‘My Fitness Pal’ is turned off.

Another reason why this might happen is if you have manually entered some runs into My Fitness Pal but haven’t told the app that they came from Garmin. In this case, you can go into each individual entry and edit it to say that it came from Garmin. To do this, go to the ‘Log Entry’ page for the run in question and tap on the ‘Source’ field. From here, select ‘Garmin’ from the list of options.

Finally, if you have ever exported data from Garmin Connect and imported it into My Fitness Pal, this can also cause duplicate entries. This is because importing data from another source will create new entries rather than merging them with existing ones. If you think this might be the case, you can check by going to the ‘Settings’ page in My Fitness Pal and tapping on ‘Data Import’. From here, you should see a list of all of the times you’ve imported data into the app. If you see multiple entries for Garmin Connect, then this is likely the cause of your duplicates.

While having duplicate entries in My Fitness Pal isn’t ideal, it’s usually not a big deal and can easily be fixed by following one of the methods above.
