Finally a way to track steps with any android wear watch and have it automatically log into My Fitness Pal!

Follow the directions below originally taken from this link:
Please check pics for reference

Android Wear is becoming one of the most popular wearable’s out in the market right now, and what some people miss about these devices is that they can double as a fitness band and step counter and some even have heart rate monitoring capabilities. Now you wont get much out of this detail with Google Fit until the app is more robust, so in this guide we are going to recommend another app to help with your fitness goals; MyFitnessPal…

MyFitnessPal is in our opinion the most robust app in the app market for loosing weight. This app is cross compatible to almost every mobile OS, it is 100% FREE, comes with a stellar food database, and is loaded with features. We recommend you try it, or chances are you are already using it. Sign up for free at, and download the app from your respective marketplace.
Android Wear

The following tutorial is for android wear smart watches. If you are in the market for one, we recommend the below as they have all the features required, and are the bests one on the market now.
What you need (Hardware)

You will need the following equipment to complete this guide.
Android Smart Watch
Android Smart Phone running 4.4+
Software you need

Up by Jawbone (not Up24)

If you haven’t already download the Up from Jawbone app from google play, while your there you might as well download MyFitnessPal if you don’t already have it.
Open the Up app and signup with Jawbone then sign in if needed.
Tap the menu button in the top left corner (The three lines). Then tap settings and finally tap Application Preferences.
Make sure phone motion sensor is turned on.
Go home and tap the watch icon on the top right. Your watch should be connected to the app, if not check that your smartwatch is paired with your phone, turned on and is in range, then restart the app.
Go to the MyFitnessPal app.
Click the menu button, scroll down and tap settings. Then Click Steps.
Tap add a device then choose Jawbone UP.
Click Connect, then sign in if it asks and click allow.
Your done!
Now your smartwatch will report steps to the UP app, which in turn will send the data to MyFitnessPal and log your calories burned.
Keep in mind it may take 24 hours for your steps to start showing up in the myfitnesspal app after performing the above steps.

Hi, After my installation i see that i lost information to google fit.. google fit doesn't travk your steps any more. Also i think that Jawbone Up doesn;t track your steps correctly. My watch in fitness watcxh screen shows 868 steps but at the Jawbone up i see doble 17xx...

Can you shere your experience?

P.P. Google Fit start working with steps showed on the fitness watch face.

Steps in jaw bone and Google fit seems to be working fine for me. Let it sit for a few days and see what happens
