If you’re following the WW Freestyle™ programme, you’ll know that you’re given a personalised FitPoints target to reach each week.
You probably also know that you can track your FitPoints by syncing your fitness device to the WW app. There are lots of devices which can be linked to our app via your iPhone or Android phone.
A Fitbit is one of them, and that includes all versions - so whether you've got a Fitbit Blaze or a Fitbit Charge 2, you can sync with the WW app for automated activity tracking.
Check out our dedicated help page on connecting and syncing your fitness device.
Remember, you don’t need to manually enter any activities – the WW app will receive the data from your fitness device and automatically convert these to FitPoints.
To ensure we have the most accurate record of your activity with minimal duplication, we allow for just one connection to a device or app at a time.
Why use a Fitbit or pedometer?
Fitness devices are great for tracking steps and helping you towards healthier goals. Our WW Fit Pedometer is perfect if you simply want to track your steps, distance and calories burned – simply clip on and go!
However, if you’re looking for something a bit more high-tech, a Fitbit will track your exercise, activity (including active minutes, hourly activity and stationary time), sleep and weight. Some, like the Flex 2, are swim proof, while others send reminders encouraging you to take 250 steps every hour.
Setting goals to reach a certain number of steps or do a certain amount of exercise can help with weight loss plans, motivate you to get outdoors and nudge you in the direction of a healthier lifestyle.
I don’t have a fitness device. How do I track my steps?
iPhone users can use their Health app, and Android users can use Google Fit.

I’m new to WW! What on earth are FitPoints?
When you sign up to WW, you're given a personalised FitPoints target to reach each week. The more you move, the more FitPoints you earn.
If you like, you can trade FitPoints for SmartPoints®, which is referred to as ‘eating your FitPoints’.
FitPoints also deepen your understanding of what you’ve eaten in relation to your activity levels. For example, how much does that 10 SmartPoints value ice cream equate to in activity? Understanding this relationship can help you make smart trade-offs on what’s worth it and what’s not.
