Sync Solver for Fitbit
By James McAndrew
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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.
What's New in Version 2.3
Updated to support iOS 10
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.
Good - but does not appear to be supported
This app definitely fills a need, however the 'active calories' data pull freezes; the author claims it's the Fitbit API, but when we ask on the Fitbit forum there is no update from the author (4 weeks now waiting) it went from great author engagement ( looking at the history) to no engagement. On the plus side this app does a great job of mapping data from two very distinct data sets. I would get it again.
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.
