    I completely agree with Michael, loved having that feature on Endomondo so why can't it be the same for MapMyRun

    I do have the same issue. Revoke the access of my FITBIT with Endomondo since you are retiring Endomondo. I was a premium user with ENDOMONDO. Moving to Mapmyfitness seems like an upgrade.Though I am really dissapointed.

    User Interface with the Android is quite complicated. Endomondo was simple and except the downtime (every now and then) it works fine.

    With MMF, there is no Auto-Pause for Walk workouts. Ok. I am not an elite athlete and every second is not an Issue. Though Endomondo supported Auto-Pause. Moving to MMF should be an Upgrade not the opposite. I tried both Endomondo / MMF / Strava and my FITBIT and MMF on a 10km Run (Saving it as a Walk Workout) at the end is about 600 meters less the total distance with 5-6 minutes plus to my overall total time. This is totally unacceptable.

    As I said I am not an elite Athlete, I am Diabetic and with a Power Walk of 5-10 km on a daily basis helps kept my Blood Glucose under Control.

    Not to mention the Sharing to Social Media. Especially on Instagram. With Endomondo was Plug and Play Now I am enforced to upload a photo to the workout in order to be able to share it with a photo.

    I do get the 3-month MAPMYFITNESS premium subscription tryout though I am totally disappointed.

    MMF Hear Rate analysis sucks and even you rename all the Heart Rate ZONES. Who understand Zone 1 2 3 etc.

    Give me a break - Seems you are repeating the same mistake as Microsoft with Windows 8.0 by removing the Start Button. You want to retire Endomondo Fine. Try to give your existing Premium Customers at least all Endomondo features / functionality and services first.

    On the other hand let me Thank you for sending my DATA. If by the end of the 3-month trial you do not try to fix certain issues. Auto-Pause is MUST for me etc. I may consider STRAVA and/or use only the FITBIT Ecosystem.

    An early reply would be very much appreciated.

    thanking you in advance,

    Yiannis Neophytou

    I agree.  Integration and communication with Fitbit would be a powerful plus.

    Hello, I was a Endomondo user and now I switched to MapMyRun (and I want to become a Premium) because Endomondo stops. I track my run with my TomTom Runner watch into TomTom Sports, that was connected with Endomondo and is now connected with MapMyRun. So far so good. But I cannot seem to connect my Fitbit Charge 3 with MapMyRun, which means that I don't see my walks, or bike rides or swim sessions in my dashboard. I think this will be an issue for many ex-Endomondo users. Could you please do something about that? If this is not possible, I feel forced to find another app to track my runs. Thx a lot for your reaction!

    I also agree, I found Endomondo very user friendly, no issues between Fitbit and Endomondo connectivity. I am not at all happy with the MapMyFitness system so far.

    The fitbit integration being lost is a pain. I agree with everyone else on this.

    Adding another disappointment here as a migrating Endomondo user. I have not been able to sync my Endomondo data and I cannot connect to fitbit. Very frustrated!

    And one more person agreeing with all of the above. ;-)

    I was Endomondo premium user and really loved the app. Hope that MMF is going to be as good as Endomondo. Please optimize the current app.

    I totally agree with everything above!! Map My Fitness should be able to automatically connect/sync with Fitbit devices. Having to manually enter in my workouts is a really annoying. I have started using Cronometer for my food intake as it automatically enters my Fitbit activity.

    Please make integration to Fitbit, this is useless for me otherwise. I have used endomondo with and without premium for many years, would hate to lose my data. I have transferred them over, but cant use any of the under armour aps if they don't integrate.

    Having the same Fitbit access that was available with Endomondo is important. The reduced functionality of MapMyRun is not great. There also seems to be no indication that you are going to be incorporating all the lost functionality into MapMyRun at a later date. This is overall disappointing. I think I may the switch to Strava if there is not going to be some improvements in functionality. The MapMyRun development team needs to be explaining what they are working on. Are they going to put back the Endomondo functionality?

    I agree with all the above. In fact, I may ditch Map My Run and just use fitbit. 

    Listen to your clients!

    Add my name to the list for the Fitbit integration.  Trying the 3 month free offer and so far...not impressed.  Web site is difficult to navigate.  Haven't found the fitness plans yet and the HR tracking sucks.   When retiring one product...one would think the new product being offered would be at least equal to if not better than the one being retired.  Shame on you UA.

    The lack of Fitbit integration is problematic to say the least. Especially when doing challenges. When my walking shows up, which is rare, it is marked as "Steps, Machine." I manually have to go back in and change it to walk for it to show up in the challenges. This is time-consuming and unnecessary. I am walking, not using a machine. Otherwise I have to enter the workout manually altogether.

    Have to join the team above - also VERY dissapointed not to be able to integrate the FITBIT tracking with MapMyRun - great loss in the change of APP. 

    PLEASE prioritize this in your APP development! We need this feature - NOW-NOW

    I do also agree with all the above. In fact, I really need to connect my Fitbit to Map My Run to continue to be your customer.

    I have to join to request for Fitbit support.

    For years I paid premium account at Endomondo and use combination Fitbit <-> Endomondo -> Relive, where Relive was used only for Visualisation and Fitbit for daily tracking. I used Endomondo for all comparisons, ratings, statistics, etc.

    Now Endomondo is ending and I'm trying to find a replacement.

     

    1) recommended MapMyFitness does not support communication with Fitbit -> I would like use it, but not applicable now, because Fitbit is necesarry for me
    2) Many people recommended Strava supports Fitbit but does not support relive and also does not accept activities without GPS data. (Pedometer, swimming in the pool, riding an exercise bike, etc ...) -> unsatisfactory
    3) Runtastic or Adidas running does not support Fitbit -> not applicable
    4) Samsung Health can only be connected to Strava -> not applicable

    Buongiorno

    sono totalmente d'accordo con quello scritto sopra, Endomondo era molto semplice e intuitivo da usare, sia l'app. sul telefono che il sito dal pc.

    MMF, non si collega al Fit Bit e il sito non è per nulla intuitivo da navigare.

    SONO MOLTO DELUSO di questa APP.

    non ho nessuna intenzione di passare a MVP per avere delle funzionalità che su Endomondo erano gratuite.

    Useless not being able to connect Fitbit. I see support for all the other major brands (apple, Garmin) why not Fitbit, it's been around longer then any of those other ones I believe.

    Also a Endomondo premium member and Fitbit user.  If there is no Fitbit integration then I will definitely be looking at using a different app.  Sadly it is all too common for companies to either ruin software/apps they purchase or get rid of them and offer something very inferior in it's place.  Sounds like this is what's happening here as well.  And I don't even know how you have a fitness tracking app and not integrate with Fitbit, very short sighted on UAs part.  Hopefully they will correct before loosing all the Endomondo premium users - you know the ones willing to pay money for the app.

    Agree with all of the above. I too have had to move solely to using Fitbit. Endomondo had some great features. Loved the weekly/monthly/yearly roll-ups. Disappointed with MapMy apps. Basically just using them to store the historical data from Endomondo.

    Another vote for matching Endomondo functionality on start, stop, heart zones AND Fitbit ( ionic) integration.

    Are you hearing this enough yet to incorporate these updates - or will all of your Endomondo and Fitbit users you bought from Endomondo abandon MapMyFitness? 

    Your choice...but don't wait too long.
