Does Fitbit Work with Samsung Health? Here’s How

Does Fitbit Work with Samsung Health

Fitbit and Samsung Health are two different fitness tracking apps.

The integration between these two apps is not perfect, but it’s still possible to sync certain data points between them. For example, you can sync your steps and calories burned between your Fitbit and Samsung Health, but not sleep data or heart rate data.

Syncing your Samsung Health app with your Fitbit device would be a good alternative for Fitbit users to view all of their data on the most popular Samsung Health dashboard.

In this guide, I’ve listed all the steps below to help you connect your Fitbit to Samsung Health. But, first, let’s see if Fitbit is compatible with Samsung Health.

Does Fitbit Work with Samsung Health?

Currently, there is no official way to connect your Fitbit device to Samsung Health as there are no updates from either side. However, you can use a nifty third-party app called Strava to sync Samsung Health with Fitbit since Samsung only supports Strava for pulling and pushing data for the time being.

How to Sync Fitbit with Samsung Health (Using Strava)

You will be required to install the latest versions of both Fitbit and Samsung Health on your device. Follow the steps below to sync Fitbit and Samsung Health data, which might seem daunting to some but will simplify life for others.

Step 1: Setup Strava with Fitbit

At present, Fitbit cannot be directly connected to Samsung Health. To make this connection, you’ll need a third-party app, Strava.

First, you’ll need to install Strava and sync with your Fitbit device. We have a full walkthrough on setting up Strava with Fitbit. I recommend you check this article before proceeding with the second step.

Step 2: Open Samsung Health

Once your Fitbit account is connected with Strava, go to the Samsung health app. Tap on the three dots in the upper right corner, then tap on settings.

Step 3: Navigate to Connected Services

Go to settings, then click on the connected service to see which apps Samsung officially allows to pull and push data through them. Luckily, Strava is one of them.

Step 4: Authorize Samsung Health to Connect to Strava

You can enable Strava by tapping the Strava button, then you will be re-directed to the Strava web page. Log in to Strava, and then follow the on-screen instructions to authorize Samsung Health to Connect to Strava.

Upon authorizing, Fitbit and Samsung Health will automatically start syncing. Note that, Samsung Health and Strava will only sync future data.
