Sync Solver - Health to Fitbit
By James McAndrew
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
By popular demand, now you can sync all you data from Apple Health to Fitbit.
*** Important *** Fitbit has decided to not allow steps from third-party apps to count towards challenges. If you want to log steps from your iPhone and participate in challenges, we recommend using Mobile Track.
Data types supported:
- Body Fat Percentage
- Sleep Analysis
- Data granularity on steps is limited to once per hour due to Fitbit API limitations.

Corrected an issue with slow responses from Health
It DOES work!
I just got an Apple Watch but didn't want to stop using my Fitbit. I like them both for different reasons. Fitbit is my "source of truth" for activity.
I don't use both devices at the same time.
I am able to sync my activity (steps) from my watch to the Fitbit app w no problems.
*(saw this on the developers support page after I purchased. Fitbit restriction)The only thing I DON'T like is that it in addition to the overall step count, it adds items to the daily exercise log. It uploads the Apple Watch steps as exercises, 1 per hour. So I have a 7am exercise, 8am exercise, 9am exercise etc with the Apple Watch steps for that hour. (It's not double counting overall steps..it's just showing them as an 'exercise' as well)
I also purchased the Sync for Fitbit to Health for the OTHER items Fitbit has and Health doesn't. Weight etc (from Fitbit Aria scale), sleep from Fitbit auto sleep tracking.
Works great all around! I'm making sure I don't sync the SAME items between both and create an endless loop! :)
I don't use Fitbit challenges so it wasn't a concern for me.
Love it! Thanks!
After reading the app would only prevent challenge tracking but would track everything else I decided to give it a try as I loved using my Fitbit app for years and had many friends on my list. I currently have a new Apple Watch and didn't want to give up tracking my weekly and daily steps with friends on Fitbit. I paid and downloaded sync solver and it seemed to work but when I opened Fitbit my steps etc did not show up on my daily or weekly totals. When you try to get app support it only gives you common questions but no one to contact. I'm contacting Apple in hopes to get my money back as this app is useless. Don't waste your time or money. I would have given a zero star if I was able to Buyer beware
Intuitive. Not worth the cost.
In terms of app development, this is super simple and intuitive. It’s a breeze to connect and sync and I appreciate that. For the cost, it’s absolutely not worth it and I say that because you do not really get anything out of it. FOR CLARITY, when you sync with Sync Solver it syncs an hourly exercise to Fitbit that counts toward your total step count and daily exercise goal. It DOES NOT apply steps to your friend feed or group challenges. In summary, you pay $3 for your step count to be visible in the Fitbit app. Synced steps DO NOT count toward badged either. If you’re looking to keep up with the social component of Fitbit, this does not happen. That’s a Fitbit API restriction that no one but Fitbit has control over.
