Syncing Your Fitbit Data Between An Apple iPhone And An Apple iPad
Is there really any way to sync your Fitbit workout records to Apple’s Healthbook? That’s a question I get asked often from my contacts at Fitbit. Most people are very interested in sync because they’ve used Fitbit before and are already familiar with its interface and how it integrates with their other health and fitness devices. They’re interested in learning whether Apple’s health application will work with Fitbit. In this article, I’ll show you how you can sync your Fitbit information to Apple’s Healthbook.
The main reason you might want to implement this workaround is you’re planning to buy an Apple Watch some time in the near future and you like a little bit of consistency to your medical information. You may also like Apple a interface as compared to Fitbit’s. You have to sign in to both read and write access on the sync solver app. Once you’ve done that, you can then use the app to upload your Fitbit data and view it on the watch. When you are done, all you have to do is pop the watch into the computer and follow the on-screen instructions. It’s that easy.
There are some things you can do to extend this synchronization beyond the obvious use of wearing Fitbit technology strapped to your wrist. One of those is connecting your Fitbit account to your Mac or PC. There are some cross-platform apps that allow you to view your tracked health history on your computer screen or iPhone, even though your Fitbit device isn’t hooked up to the computer.
Some users prefer the convenience that comes with having everything they need at their fingertips, even if their phone has no Touch Screen. So one way to achieve this is to use the Health App on your iPhone or iPad to log your exercise activities. Whenever you see a step you’ve already taken – or missed – you can simply log it in the health app. The software does all the footwork for you, from logging your steps to providing graphs that show you your average pace, speed, heart rate and other metrics.
This approach works well if you are just trying out a fitness program or plan and don’t yet have a lot of data to share. It can be a great supplement to whatever you’re already doing. It can help you track progress over time. But if you want to go a step further and really track your fitness and health, you can actually sync your Fitbit account to your Mac or PC. Then whenever you are on the computer and logged into the health app, it will automatically download your Fitbit health data and display it on your Mac or PC.
For example, you can use your Fitbit to track your mileage, run metrics and much more. Once you have all of your data synched up, you can then use the health app on your iPhone or iPad to access the information on your Apple devices. It basically turns your Fitbit device into a personal coach. If you’re working out or maintaining a fitness regimen, you can have access to information on your Fitbit account just by turning your Fitbit device on.
If you want to be able to use all of this syncing technology, you have to make sure that you have the right Fitbit syncing tools set up. If you’re on an old Fitbit, you may not have all of your syncing features working yet. Fortunately, all of your current Fitbit devices support the same basic setup for syncing between your computer and the iPhone or iPad. All you need to do is set up your iPhone or iPad to receive updates from your Fitbit account via SMS, email or FTP. From there, all you have to do is start syncing your data.
The most important thing to remember about syncing your Fitbit data between your iPhone and the Apple devices is that your data is only secure until you save it to your computer or other storage device. This means that you need to be very careful with what you synch your Fitbit information onto. There are many different iPhone and iPad fitness apps, but only a few of them are actually secure. Most of the “free” apps you’ll find on the App Store aren’t secure because they are based on closed-source code. Only very popular apps like Healthband for iPhone and MyFitnessPal for Android are safe, so if you’re serious about syncing your Fitbit info between the Apple devices, I recommend you download one of these two fantastic apps.
