Connecting with Fitbit

To connect your Fitbit account and your Runkeeper account, log into, go to Settings, and select Apps. You will see Fitbit in the list of apps; all you have to do is click the "Connect to Fitbit" button and follow the prompts!

*Data only flows from Fitbit to Runkeeper, and not vice versa. We'd love a bi-directional flow, too. Contact Fitbit support to make this happen!

Fitbit data will not appear in the Runkeeper app - it's only available on the feed at this time.

About Fitbit
Fitbit tracks your motion all day and night, allowing you to see how active you are, and inspiring you to walk more and do more. You'll be able to see the following 24-hour stats in Runkeeper after connecting your Runkeeper and Fitbit accounts:

  • Total steps taken during the day
  • Total daily calories burned
  • Total daily calories consumed
  • How long & how well you sleep

At this time, we don't receive GPS or heart rate data from the newer Fitbit devices such as the Surge or Charge HR. Fitbit's hardware is designed to pair only with their software, so those devices are not compatible with our app at this time. Feel free to up-vote or follow this feature request, in the event that anything changes there!
