    Having the same issue, logged a ticket with MFP which was automatically set to resolved. I'd be annoyed if I paid for the premium service, thankfully, I don't and I copy and edit my previous synced runs.

    Mine will read the steps, but not the workouts. I have to input those manually. It’s pretty annoying.

    Same issue. Good old MFP, always buggering up something :)

    Hey guys
    Go to the health app on your phone and allow all access to MFP that will let you record all your exercises:)

    Everything is allowed on mine and it still isn’t working right.
    Apparently MFP is only requesting steps and walking + running distance for me. That means the exercises aren’t getting pulled over and I have no clue how they’re coming up with the calories.

    Example:

    I’m set to Lightly Active.
    MFP estimates I burn 1891.

    Yesterday I tracked:
    29,139 steps
    Pilates and Strength training
    Total calorie burn 3061 according to Apple Watch

    Adjustment on MFP 263. No exercise synced over.
    I have no clue where MFP is coming up with 263 calories and why it is adding exactly that many regardless of activity level setting. I emailed them about it and just got told it was a comparison of what MFP thought I would burn and what Apple Watch tracked, but clearly that is not what’s happening.

    I ended up downloading the Pacer app and then syncing it to MFP for accurate data. Pacer pulls the Active calories from the watch/health app, calculates an adjustment and sends to data to MFP. Mine hasn’t always synced automatically but I’m hoping having a new phone helps with that.

    This has been a problem for a long time.... I’m a former Premium member that is now using another paid app for my logging for this reason. I enjoy the forums and friends here so I still visit MFP daily. It doesn’t seem that any focus is being paid to the sync issues with Apple Watch.

    Hi. Did this work? Did your workout log across from your Apple Watch to mfp?
    Thanks

    Not sure why you aren’t seeing the option for MFP to read workouts. I have it enabled on mine and it works fine.

    Go to settings - “apps & devices” in the MFP app and select “health app”. Then you will see more permissions to enable. Workouts will be there.

    Mine was working for about 6 weeks and no longer is syncing. I have not changed my settings and workouts are selected as allowed. This is quite annoying
