MyFitnessPal

Overview

When you link your Record and MyFitnessPal accounts, workouts, steps, inactive/active calories burned, calories consumed, and weight can be shared between accounts.

To connect your accounts, 

1. Open Record and tap theicon in the top right of the Dashboard.

2. Tap ‘MyFitnessPal’

3. Log in with your credentials (we are currently experiencing issues with login via Facebook for Android users, please use your login credentials instead)

4. Authorize the connection.

**If you do not know your MyFitnessPal password, you can retrieve here.**

How do Record and MyFitnessPal work together? Once you have linked accounts, the following data will transfer between the two:

  • Workouts will automatically sync between Record/MMF and MyFitnessPal. This includes: activity type, duration, average pace, and total calories burned. Workouts that are tracked or logged in Record will sync to MFP, and workouts logged in MFP will sync to Record.
    • How do I delete a workout from MyFitnessPal that I see in Record and vice versa? You can delete it from either app to remove it from MFP.
    • Why do my Record workouts appear in MFP as sourced from "MapMyFitness?" This is a known issue we are working to resolve.
  • Steps can sync FROM Record TO MyFitnessPal, but not the other way around. In order for your steps in Record to import to MFP, make sure you have Under Armour selected as your "Step Tracker" in MyFitnessPal
  • Workout calories, or calories burned while working out, will sync between both MFP and Record.
  • Total calories, or active calories burned from steps and inactive calories burned from your base metabolism (steps + basal metabolic rate), will sync FROM Record TO MFP only if Record is selected as your "Step Tracker" in MFP.
  • Weight recorded or logged in Record will automatically update your weight logs in MyFitnessPal.
  • Calories consumed and logged in MyFitnessPal can populate the Nutrition quadrant of your Record Dashboard. To enable, tap on the Nutrition quadrant of your Record Dashboard > tap the "Switch to MyFitnesssPal tracking" option > tap "OK" to confirm. Note: this feature is only available to iOS users running version 3.0.1 of Record. It will be available for Android users in the next update of the application.

**A note on data from third parties (i.e. Fitbit, Google Fit, Apple Watch, iOS Motion Sensor, Garmin Connect, Misfit, Jawbone UP, Withings, etc).**

Any workout, step, or weight data that is imported into your Record account from a third party will sync to MFP; however, this is not a two-way street. In other words, third party data that syncs directly to MFP will not sync to Record. The only type of MyFitnessPal data you can track in Record is workouts logged in MyFitnessPal, such as activity type, duration, average pace, and total calories burned.

Troubleshooting

If you are not seeing the data mentioned above once linked, please double-check and make sure you have entered your height, weight, and any other details in your profile on both sites, and that the information matches. Also, please double check to make sure your time zones are correct and match in both areas.

In the event that you are still not seeing any information transfer, please confirm you have correctly linked the two programs. The best way to do this is online at www.MyFitnessPal.com (if using an app sign in with the same username and password as the app). Once online, go to the main "Apps" tab. Mid-right of that page, you should see a list of your connected partners. If you are not finding any connections on that page, then visit the main gallery, find Record, and try connecting again.

If the integration appears to be connected, but you are still not seeing any information sync, please try disconnecting and reconnecting the two from within the Record app.

To disconnect/reconnect, click  from the Dashboard screen and tap on MyFitnessPal > Disconnect. Once unlinked, try re-establishing the connection.

Once reconnected, try adding a new workout on Record and then waiting about 15 minutes to see if the workout then transfers to MyFitnessPal.

If you are still unable to see any information on MyFitnessPal, and you have verified the connection between the two have been made, can you please let us know your MyFitnessPal username, as well as the email address you used to establish your partner account. If at all possible, can you also please let us know what information you perceive to be missing?

Why doesn't my calorie intake from MyFitnessPal appear in Record's Nutrition Section?

This feature is now available to iOS users running version 3.0.1 of Record; however, it must be enabled. To enable MyFitnessPal tracking, tap on the Nutrition quadrant of your Record Dashboard > tap the "Switch to MyFitnesssPal tracking" option > tap "OK" to confirm. Note: this feature is only available to iOS users running version 3.0.1 of Record. It will be available for Android users in the next update of the application.
