Fitbit and Health, together at last. Sync all your data from Fitbit to Apple Health. After the first sync, the app will automatically sync in the background throughout the day. **Important** Fitbit currently provides access to daily data only. We have requested Partner API status in order to provide intraday syncing.

Need to sync from Health to Fitbit? Check out Sync Solver - Health to Fitbit as well.
Data types supported:
- Flights Climbed
- Walking + Running Distance
- Body Fat Percentage
- Body Mass Index
- Sleep Analysis (In bed and asleep time)
- Dietary Calories
- Resting Calories
- Active Calories
- If you are using Sync Solver - Health to Fitbit, be sure to not sync the same data types as this will result in a data duplication loop.
- Since iOS schedules backgroud updates based on your app usage pattern, it may be necessary to manually sync from time to time in order to keep Sync Solver automatically syncing on a consistent basis.
- Intraday data granularity is not possible at this time due to Fitbit API limitations.
Ratings and Reviews
My original review wasn’t accurate.
I bought this app because I can’t have my phone on me at work but I can wear my Fitbit. I wanted to sync my steps with my apple health app to have it all in one convenient place. Originally I was mad because less than 1,000 of my 6,000+ steps would sync but it turns out this was because of an issue with my Fitbit app. It would sync my steps to my Fitbit app but not load them fully so only part of them could be synced. And while I wish this app had a little more to offer it’s doing what I need it to do.
Works for what I need
It requires manual sync. Which learning that as a requirement it doesn't bother me. Couldn't give it a higher rating. The software update locked up my iPhone. I had to restart it. Not sure if software was installed after before or after restart. I have a problem when companies send an update and it causes problems to your system and/or device.
I was using sync solver for a while and it was not until much later that I realized that it didn't correlate data from other sources, like your phone. Therefore, I had nearly doubled info in HealthKit. Since all measurements from the phone are done in increments it's not feasible to delete every single one of those data points.
What's worse, is that when you use Sync Solver data it just has one long total for the entire day so there is no spread of data across the time of day. The only thing is is good for is managing your totals but it's far from a replacement for syncing granular data from your fit bit to HealthKit.
Developer Response ,
If you still want to track the iPhone's steps in Health but just avoid double counting, open the Health app and navigate to Health Data > Fitness > Steps > Share Data. Next, tap Edit in the top right corner and drag Sync Solver to the top of the list of Data Sources. This will make Sync Solver the highest priority Data Source in Health, which will instruct Health to use data from Sync Solver instead of the built-in sensor on the iPhone when the date periods do not overlap. If you no longer want to track data from the iPhone at all, open the iOS Settings app, and navigate to Privacy > Motion & Fitness and turn the Fitness Tracking switch off.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
