Apple Workouts + My Fitness Pal JessicaDawnG — Aug 05, 2017 10:39AM PDT

Hey friends.
I may have missed an answer to this on the website, but I tried hunting it down to no avail.

I would like my workouts from my Apple Watch (just using the Apple workouts app) to pull into MFP. How can I make this happen? There doesn't seem to be an option to sync this like FitBit does . I just swapped over from a FitBit to an Apple Watch.

Much appreciated.

You have to do it from the Health app. Open the app then go to Sources at the bottom and then tap on My Fitness Pal and scroll down to the section that says "ALLOW "MYFITNESSPAL" TO READ DATA:" and make sure Workouts is selected. I have this done on mine and it does import to MFP, but only the first workout of the day. I have done 2 at least 4 times this week and only the first workout is importing so not sure what's causing that.

I did this and nothing syncs over.. sort of defeats the purpose of MFP being an overall tracker if it can't pull in the activity information from the Health/Watch app. :(

Has anyone found a solution to this problem as I'm experiencing the same thing. I've uninstalled; reinstalled; relinked; re-done the permissions and it's still not working. It used to work fine but the recent updates seemed to have stopped it

Hi * suman4g*

Could you let us know the name of the exercise from Apple Watch that is not syncing to MyFitnessPal?
