I use either a Garmin Venu or Edge 520 to update exercise but it produces 2 versions the same thus doubling up.
Can anyone advise solution please ?

    Are you switching back and forth between these devices? Pick one to sync with MFP and use it exclusively.

    Are you using different devices for different activities? Unsync them from MFP and manually log your exercise calories.

    Do you mean on Garmin Connect?

    If issue there it will be transferred to MFP.

    Sometimes there is a timing issue on GC while it sorts it out.
    I'd get that if I synced my daily tracker before the Forerunner, the extra calories from the workout would NOT be added to the daily total then sent to MFP.
    But the workout would be.

    So here's a smallish TDEE that doesn't include the workout sent to MFP.
    Then here's a huge bike ride calorie burn that is sent to MFP.
    MFP removes the workout so no double counting - problem is, it was never counted - so just had huge calories removed.

    And GC didn't seem to want to send the correct TDEE once it updated it's own numbers. Until I synced the daily tracker again.

    Are you literally starting the workout on both devices?
