    Hi guys,

    Does anyone know if you can use the workout app that is built into the Apple watch to sync with MFP? I use MFP to track what I eat and it syncs with my Apple iPhone okay in terms of weight but cannot find out if I can send my workouts to MFP?

    Anyone know?

    Oh. Just seen it is actually syncing automatically. Don't worry.

    I've found that my steps and workouts all sync with MFP except for 'other' workouts.

    I noticed this when I done a workout on Xbox Fitness and selected 'other' workout on the watch. It wasn't a problem though as Xbox syncs with MFP too.

    After a 10 minute workout the Xbox said I burned 60 calories and my watch said 59 calories. I was quite impressed how accurate the watch was.

    This is a known issue and MFP has said it will be fixed in a later update.

    Oh yes. I've just seen that it didn't sync. It has iOS calories but not the ones from weightlifting earlier today, for which I selected 'other'.

    What a silly bug to have missed.
