Introducing Fitbit auto-sync for Virtual Events and Challenges

September 15, 2020

sodisp is the most complete platform to host virtual events and challenges. It's free to use for most events. Start your virtual event or challenge today!

More and more users prefer our automatic sync options from Garmin and Strava over manual entry. This is why we now released native integration with Fitbit.

Using the Fitbit auto-sync option each activity, which is tracked with a Fitbit tracker or watch, is automatically synced with the sodisp platform. From there we verify the activity and connect it to the users’ virtual events and challenges. All without any manual interaction from the user.

51% of participants has enabled auto-sync with Garmin or Strava

sodisp already allows participants to connect using their Strava app or Garmin device. We automatically sync runs, walks and rides from Strava and Garmin, it all goes automatically!

Slightly more than half (51%) of our participants enables the automatic sync whereas the others prefers to manually enter their activity data.

Validation of activity speed/pace

We also support manual entry and upload of gpx files for users without Garmin, Strava or Fitbit. To prevent invalid or unrealistic data we recently introduced a feature to automatically validate each activity based on the selected activity type.

Activities with unrealistic data are automatically filtered out to ensure race leaderboards only contain valid data.

Available now and free for most events
