A new app has been released that makes it possible to sync your Fitbit data with HealthKit. Fitbit does not support HealthKit. This has already led to a conflict between the two companies, after Apple decided to remove all Fitbits from the online Apple Stores. With the app Sync Solver ($1.99) you can now transmit the data from your Fitbit to the Health app from Apple.
Install and set up the app
The first time you start the app, you need to sync manually by pressing a button in the app. Then Sync Solver synchronizes the data automatically every 24 hours. Please note that with this app you give you data to a third party and not just Fitbit and Apple. The creator of this app: a certain James McAndrew knows what your weight is, how much you’ve walked and how much you’ve slept. In case you regret, you can revoke access to the Fitbit data via fitbit.com/user/profile/apps.
Solver Sync synchronizes the following data: steps, floors, distance walking and running, weight, body fat percentage, BMI, sleep analysis, calories from food, resting and active metabolism calories. There are about 20 buttons that you must enable to synchronize all available info. Then press the Sync Now link. You will be redirected to a page where you must enter your Fitbit account information. The synchronization then takes about half a minute. Then you will not have to worry about it again.
There is a small problem with this app: there is a chance that your steps are counted twice because Apple also counts the steps of the iPhone. The developer also warns for this, but can do nothing about it for now, because the fault lies with Apple.
There is still another detour to get your Fitbit data in HealthKit: by taking the detour via MyFitnessPal. You can read data from Fitbit in MyFitnessPal, which can then transmit it to HealthKit.
