Create Your Account

Getting started with FitnessSyncer is easy. Here are the steps required:

  • If you do not already have an account, create a free account.
  • We recommend first setting your Time Zone. From the Accounts page, select Profile, select General (on the web) or Time Zone (in the app), and make the adjustment.

Once that is done, you simply add sources to your data. It’s pretty simple. If it seems complicated, How FitnessSyncer Works is a nice introduction and of course, we are here to help.

Adding Sources

Adding a new Source

Start by adding in your sources using these steps:

  • On the Accounts page, click Add New Source   .
  • Select the Data Type you wish to read from the drop-down menu, such as Activity, Blood Pressure, Body Composition, Sleep, etc. Remember that FitnessSyncer will only read this type of data for this source and if you want to read the other types, you will need to add another source.
  • Select the Source for the data from the list. For Apple Health, you will need to do this from FitnessSyncer for IOS; for Samsung Health, you will need to do this from FitnessSyncer for Android.
  • There is an that will show up for many (but not all) sources; this will answer any common questions and limitations with the integration.
  • Depending on the source, you may need to enter your username and password for that service here, or you may be redirected to the device or service’s website after saving the item to grant FitnessSyncer access to your information.
  • Click the Save button. All other properties are not required but you can learn more about them in Sources.

You can now click the Sync     button to pull in your data. Depending on how much data you have, this may take some time. You may wish to refer to any specific documentation for the service you are synchronizing for any specific information for it or get familiar with the service under our how it works section.

Once your data is available, navigate to our Dashboard or Stream to see your data.

If you do not have any accounts at any our supported sites, you can always use our Notebook to keep track of your information or use the FitnessSyncer Uploader to upload your content into FitnessSyncer. This is also a great way to get started with FitnessSyncer. For more information, please see the Notebook section.

Adding Destinations

Once the data is available, you can then start putting the data to work. Our Destination Tasks are intended to take actions on your data. The most common is synchronization to another service. To get started on this:

Adding a new Destination
  • On the Accounts page, click Add New Destination Task   .
  • Select the Synchronize with Service option as the Type
  • Select the Data Type that matches your Source data you wish to synchronize. Remember that FitnessSyncer will only publish this type of data to this destination.
  • Select the Destination you wish to publish data to. For Apple Health, you will need to do this from FitnessSyncer for IOS; for Samsung Health, you will need to do this from FitnessSyncer for Android.
  • Depending on the destination, you may need to enter your username and password for that service here, or you may be redirected to the device or service’s website after saving the item to grant FitnessSyncer access to your information.
  • Click the Save button. All other properties are not required but you can learn more about them in Sync Destinations.

To try your first sync, click the Sync     button near your Destination Task on the Accounts page. Depending on how much data you have, this can take a long time.
