Introducing FitPoints 2.0®
Physical activity has long been a pillar of the WW plan and now we’re launching our smartest version of FitPoints to date. What Points® did for food, FitPoints 2.0 is doing for activity!
FitPoints 2.0 take into account your height, weight, age, and sex, as well as activity and duration, to calculate a personalised FitPoints value for all of the activities you track.
Just as all calories are not created equal, the same is true for activity: 100 calories burned walking is not the same as 100 calories burned lifting weights or running. The new algorithm reflects that reality and motivates you to include high intensity and strength training in your activity routine.
The most common reason members give for not engaging in regular physical activity? Time! FitPoints 2.0 helps you make the most of the time you do have.
You can earn the same number of FitPoints in shorter amounts of time, depending on the activity. Since strength training and high intensity activities earn extra FitPoints, these activities can help you achieve your FitPoints goal faster!
Can I change my FitPoints 2.0 goal if I want to?
Yes. You can change your goal by going into your activity settings in the app or on ww.com.

Click on your profile (the icon in the bottom right corner)

Can I still sync my fitness device?
Of course! We have the instructions right here.
