How FitnessSyncer Works

FitnessSyncer basic flow

To better exploit the power of FitnessSyncer, its best to understand some of the concepts used.

FitnessSyncer is divided into two configuration items, Sources and Destination Tasks.

A Source is a feed of health or fitness information and collects one type of data. For example, if you create an Activity Source, only exercise information will be read from that service. Currently, we support the following types of data:

  • Activity: All Fitness Information including Activity Tracking, Running, Walking, Swimming, Weight Lifting, etc.
  • Blood Pressure: Blood Pressure metrics
  • Glucose: Blood Glucose measurements
  • Body Composition: Body Weight and Composition measurements
  • Nutrition: Nutrition and Water consumption
  • Oxygen: SpO2 Measurements
  • Sleep: Sleep metrics
  • Temperature: Temperature Measurements

The information from the Sources is available on our Dashboard, Stream, Calendar, Daily Analyzer, Your Best, and Destination Tasks. More information is available in the section sources documentation.

Destination Tasks are tasks which take source data and use it in some way. Today, FitnessSyncer supports the following destination tasks:

  • Synchronization Tasks: Synchronize your health and fitness data from a variety of sources to another service.
  • E-mail Tasks: FitnessSyncer can e-mail you daily, weekly, and monthly health and fitness reports.
  • Social Tasks: Update your Twitter and Facebook feeds with your daily, weekly, or monthly achievements.
  • ShoeRenew: Automatically monitor the wear on your shoes or when to get regular maintenance on equipment.
  • Alert Tasks: Get notified when your data exceeds your configurable thresholds.
  • Refresh Source: A Pro feature to schedule source data refreshes.

To synchronize, we copy the items in the Sources to the Destinations. FitnessSyncer does not delete or update any records directly. If the data is not available from a service, it will result in a 0 and in some rare cases, calculated by FitnessSyncer.

All destination tasks will be ran by default once per day, usually during the night. FitnessSyncer Pro subscribers have the ability to run this more frequently and scheduling the tasks.
