Weight Watchers FitPoints (Activity Points): Exactly How Do They Work?
I love getting all the app notifications like a smart watch. I love what it can do but I hate what it cant do. The average weight-loss is about 5 percent of your weight after one-year. A fitness tracker's app matters. FitPoints is Weight Watchers' rating system for physical activity. How do I decide if the activity is low, moderate, or high intensity? Something we hope you'll especially enjoy:

Now, you could walk just a third of that and already earn as many as 2 FitPoints. What is FitBreak from Weight Watchers? FitBreak is an app that shows you very brief videos a few seconds long , and encourages you to then mimic that activity for exactly one minute. If you do this 20 times over the course of the day a total of 20 minutes , you will receive 2 FitPoints.

You must be logged into your regular Weight Watchers mobile app while using FitBreak, in order to automatically receive the points. When you start on Weight Watchers, you take an assessment where WW looks at your lifestyle and determines your first FitPoints goal. As mentioned, this goal is based on your personal factors. For instance, if you currently spend a lot of time sitting at your desk, WW will start you off with a fairly low points goal.

One is by wearing an activity tracker, such as the highly popular Fitbit, which integrates with your Weight Watchers account. The advantage of wearing an activity tracker is that you'll earn the most FitPoints this way. Just make sure that your tracking app is synced to your Weight Watchers account so that your tracked activities are automatically converted and credited as FitPoints. Just log in to your My Day online dashboard, go to "Activity," and there you'll see where to input your activity.

Even if you don't want to shell out for an expensive tracker, you can download a free pedometer app on your phone to count your steps for you. Once you get the hang of reaching your weekly FitPoints goals and for some people, WW is right in saying that this can be addictive , your goal will likely be changed to match your new lifestyle.

If you reach your goal for two weeks straight, Weight Watchers will automatically recommend a higher goal for you. And if you keep racking up those points, you get more bragging rights — and other perks, like say, a leaner, healthier body.

Plus, you can exchange those FitPoints for more SmartPoints, which means that you can eat a little more if you want to. FitPoints is a goal system, so you want to earn more points here to achieve your target. In fact, 1 FitPoint is equal to 1 SmartPoint. The question now is, should you eat your FitPoints?

In a way, this makes sense. And, as we all know, getting a treat every now and then makes dieting a little more enjoyable. A similar thing may happen with tracking apps, especially if more than one app is synced to your WW account.

Overestimated FitPoints means that you could then be swapping for more food than you worked for, and that completely throws the diet. The equivalent FitPoints for each activity depends a lot on its intensity and duration, and your weight also factors into it. A basic "average" approximation would be 1, walking steps equals 1 FitPoint, but this could increase or decrease for you, depending on your weight, etc.

It does take a bit of meticulous fine-tuning to figure out FitPoints for your particular weight. The Weight Watchers Pocket Guide provides a comparison:.

A pound person earns 1 FitPoint after 10 minutes of low- to moderate intensity movements. Meanwhile, a pound person earns 1 FitPoint after 10 minutes of low-intensity, but 2 FitPoints after 10 minutes of moderate-intensity activity. The pound person would get 6 FitPoints while her pound friend would get And since FitPoints are meant to encourage us to move, maybe Weight Watchers wants to give more encouraging pats on the back i.

Start by what it does automatically, then add other functions as you need them. There is no "sync now," or "update now" button or icon to click.

Some of my workouts are close to midnight, and I want to make sure the effort is logged in as the correct day. Usually it takes about an hour to update Numi. Two weeks in and pretty pleased! Purchased to replace a "big name" brand which had rarely received notifications and had other issues communicating with its App. The Fusion Bio 2 has always "connected" as it should and seems to provide reliable data on movement, sleep, etc.

It does seem to struggle with weather notifications Also the phone doesn't seem to track the heart rate even when in "continuous" tracking.

It did one day, and hasn't since. The resting heart rate as shown on the monitor itself seems accurate but it doesn't seem to share that information with the phone app in my experience. The battery so far is good for over a week between charges. Notifies of emails, but I couldn't get it to show any content, just that one arrived so that is not particularly helpful and so I turned that feature off so that it isn't constantly telling me I have an email without any additional information.

Text and call notifications work well. Putting on the band is a little difficult to negotiate due to the small size opening that it needs to fit through, but at least it won't pop open and fall off as my previous from a different manufacturer band did with some frequency. Overall, pleased with what it will do and how it works, but it could stand a little tweaking in communicating information from the monitor to the phone app.

Certainly a better value, in my opinion, than my previous device which cost much more and didn't function as much more than a watch and pedometer. I too have had the device pop out of the band on occasions since purchase. I've been lucky to find it every time so far.

The weather forecast works too often at intermittent times or not at all. Other than that, notifications and overall accuracy seem to still be working well. I received a new band for mine that is not as flexible as the originals and seems to hold the device in the band much better.

The watch fell off its rubber band within weeks of use!! I had the regular striv which was water proof.. Also the battery life was appalling and its not water proof! One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. It was in good condition and packaged like new.

It did not have proper registration so I took a few weeks to get it to syncronize even doing a fresh install on my iPhone 7. The Android phone could not connect as it was already too old a version though it had worked with the bio fusion I had lost. The new style band did not keep the bio fusion 2 from falling out and getting lost once. What is needed is a tracker for the track watch along with some better up to date documentation.

Good alternative to other fitness trackers and works well in a variety of conditions. See all 46 reviews. Most recent customer reviews. Published 1 month ago. Published 2 months ago.

The only thing I'm interested in tweaking on this device is how it counts steps.

As with any other fitness tracker, app or device, I've ever used, it picks up basic activities and counts them as steps. I'm going to be adjusting stride settings to come up with what I feel is the most accurate representation of steps taken. The fact that the step counter isn't as accurate as I would like does not detract from my review, because I haven't yet found an accurate pedometer or fitness tracker, that only counts steps and not basic movement.

If that issue were unique to this fitness tracker, yes I would lower my review. Not even 8 months in, and the two little plastic bits that held the tracker in the wristband have broken off.

It still goes in the wristband, and stays a bit, but this morning it fell out while I was getting dressed, not doing anything that should have knocked it out. Going to contact Striiv to see about a replacement, once I look at my original packaging to see if there's a warranty.

By MartyG on April 20, I wanted a system that integrates with my Nutrisystem app, i. This works very well, and I wear it constantly. I like the way it picks up "ordinary" efforts like shopping, lawn care, etc. The system is capable of tracking many items, even including walking the dog.
