We have threads for Garmin and Suunto, but not a current one for Fitbit users. Occasionally I get a question from a Fitbit user, and it can be handy to direct them to a group of users who might be better placed to answer a question. In this case, I've got a user who (maybe) has the watch set up without GPS enabled - hence the training entries that she's trying to import are coming across with no useful detail. At this point, I'm not sure what model of Fitbit it is... but I thought at least if there's a pool of Fitbit users watching this thread, we might collectively be able to help. Ta.

I've just switched from Fitbit to Garmin, but do recall that unless you run with your phone, with the app turned on and bluetooth and location services enabled, it won't map the route. Could that be the issue?

Sounds like you have the sort of Fitbit that doesn’t have GPS inside; but some of them are capable of it.

Yep, a Charge 2. If it's a more recent model that has GPS built in, that's beyond what I know.

There are quite a few with built in GPS. I’ve got one- Versa I think. Ionic is another.

Bought an original Charge but they've been so unreliable I am now on a Charge 4 having had it replaced 3 times for free. Still love Fitbit for its sleep report.

Fitbit app seems to be down. Can’t sync my data and my steps have disappeared.

Got something to say?
