Can Fitbit Connect to Apple Health? (Question Answered!)

When Apple or iPhone Health is mentioned, I immediately think of Apple Watches. These watches are reliable since they provide accurate health and fitness information. However, when compared to other watches, they are a bit more expensive. For this reason, I would opt for a more affordable option, such as Fitbit. But if I choose Fitbit over the Apple Watch, will it be possible to connect it to Apple Health?

To clarify, there is no official way to connect Fitbit with Apple Health, nor is it possible to connect Apple Watch with the Fitbit app. However, with the help of third-party apps such as Sync Solver, Power Sync, and Fitbit to Apple Health Sync it is possible to connect Fitbit to Apple Health. Unfortunately, some data may get lost after connecting Fitbit to Apple Health using any of the third-party apps.

Nevertheless, if connecting Fitbit to Apple Health is a priority, I will provide the connection steps shortly.
