FitBit misleading option "body fat %"?


#1

I wanted to track my percentage of body fat relative to entire body weight, and the “%” seemed to indicate that that’s what this does. But instead it seems to track absolute body fat weight.


#2

I just double checked Fitbit’s API documentation to see how they describe the field (the one that we’re asking them for when we log body fat), and they do describe it as “body fat percentage”.

If you email support with a link to the goal in question I can take a direct look at your data and the API output and see what’s up.

Ah, sorry, I think I messed up. Because my weight is exactly 100kg the percenatage and absolute numbers are identical… :sweat_smile: Nevermind.
