Sync my Fitbit downloads your entire Fitbit history from Fitbit.com and stores it on your iPhone in the Apple Health app.
Yes. But Fitbit API granularity does not make it possible to sync every data point available. The app sync an average of the resting heart rate.
Yes. The app will sync your Weight, Body Fat Percentage, Body Mass Index(BMI), and Lean Body Mass. You must first sync your Aria Scale with your Fitbit account before using Sync my Fitbit.
The app will sync all recorded data, and then it will start syncing the latest data once available.
Currently automatic sync is not available. You have to manually sync your data. We are working on providing automatic sync and it will be released with a future update.
This happens when "Block Cookies" in enabled in Safari. To solve this issue do the follow:

- Select "Allow from Websites I Visit"
- Go back to Sync my Fitbit and sign in again
As the app syncs through the day, it must compare new data points with data points that have already been synced. If the app does not have read access, it will not be able to compare the data points, and you may end up with duplicate data in Health. If you performed syncs without giving the app read access, you will need to delete the app, including all it's synced Health data, and reinstall.
The Health app does not show data types on the Dashboard by default. Instead, it requires you to manually choose each data type that you want on the Dashboard. For example: to add Steps to the Dashboard, navigate to Health Data > Fitness > Steps > Show on Dashboard and turn the switch on.
The standard Fitbit API only supports data granularity at the daily level.
If you 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 my Fitbit to the top of the list of Data Sources. This will make Sync my Fitbit the highest priority Data Source in Health, which will instruct Health to use data from SMF instead of the built-in sensor on the iPhone when the dates do not overlap. If you don't 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.
No. We can only sync data that is already on your Fitbit account.
Fitbit only allows Sync my Fitbit to save your credentials for up to 30 days. You will need to login again when the credentials expire.
Your Fitbit device must be within range of the receiver to send data. If you use the Fitbit app on your iPhone, make sure to enable All-Day Sync for best results.
If you previously logged in to Fitbit with a different account in Safari on your phone, it is possible that this login has been remembered, and you are connected to the wrong account. Logout at https://www.fitbit.com/logout, and then reinstall Sync my Fitbit to correct the issue.
When downloading body measurements such as weight, the Fitbit API interpolates gaps in your data. If you do not have any measurements for the current day, Fitbit will use the previous day’s value. If you have a period of days where there are two measurements at either end, Fitbit will compute an average of the values resulting in a linear increase or decrease over the period. Unfortunately, this behavior is not something that we have control over.
Health has categories for Active and Resting Calories but not Total Calories (what Fitbit calls Calories Burned).
The app only supports syncing one sleep session per day at this time.
Because there is an inconsistency between how Health and Fitbit handles sleep information.
Health lists sleep entries according to the end date of the data point. If you go to sleep past midnight, you are technically going sleep on the same day that you are waking up. If you then go to sleep before midnight on that same day, Health will show two sleep entries for the same day. Navigate into the actual sleep entry in Health if you want to see the details of exactly when you went to sleep or woke up on a given day.
Health and Fitbit store workouts in different formats, so performing a sync between the two is not straight forward. We are working on a update to provide this functionality to users.
Depending on how you upgrade, Apple may not import all the data from Health from your previous phone. Delete and reinstall Sync my Fitbit and it will bring back all your historical data.
