Fitbit and Samsung Roll Out Health Connect Feature for Fitness Tracking Enthusiasts

Fitbit for Android rolls out Health Connect support [Update: Active]

Fitbit and Samsung have announced that the new version 3.69 of their app is rolling out, featuring the Health Connect feature. This is great news for fitness enthusiasts who want to track their workouts, sleep, and heart rate.

To use the Health Connect feature, you must ensure your Fitbit is synced with it and active. You can do this by going into the Fitbit app, tapping your profile avatar in the top-left corner, and selecting “Health Connect” at the bottom. Ensure that “Sync with Health Connect” is checked, and check the Recent access timeline.

According to 9to5google, you can choose which data you want Fitbit to write to your device, and data in Health Connect is stored on your device. Other apps you have set up with Health Connect will be able to access this data.

Fitbit Health Connect feature

Last week, Fitbit released an update, version 3.69, and it is now widely available via the Play Store. Some users have reported not seeing the Health Connect feature after updating this version. However, after opening Health Connect, they see that Fitbit is compatible with this version.

They can then access App permissions and find Fitbit under “Not allowed access.” From there, they can select “Allow all” or choose from Distance, Elevation gained, Exercise, Floors climbed, Heart rate, Sleep, Steps, and Total calories burned.

The latest update, version 0.1.1153.480892628.0-open_beta, of Health Connect was released this morning. It adds a “Recent access” timeline for some, allowing you to see which apps have accessed your data in the past 24 hours and what data they said (such as activity, sleep, and vitals).

The Health Connect feature will undoubtedly make it easier for fitness enthusiasts to track their health and wellness, and Fitbit and Samsung are committed to improving it further.
