Does Fitbit Work with Samsung Health? (Question Answered!)

Connecting Fitbit to other fitness apps is a perfect way to gain health and fitness insights from various environments. The Samsung Health app is one of the apps considered by most Fitbit owners, including myself. But the question remains: Does Fitbit work with Samsung Health even after the massive consideration?

Yes, it does! Fitbit works with Samsung Health, but indirectly. The only way to connect a Fitbit to Samsung Health is with the help of third-party apps like Health Sync and Strava.

Final Thoughts

I don’t know when Fitbit and Samsung will partner to get the Fitbit and Samsung Health app to connect, but I am hoping it will happen soon. For now, Fitbit and Samsung Health cannot work unless you involve third-party apps such as Health Sync and Strava.

Unfortunately, once you connect Fitbit to Samsung Health, you will not get your step count and resting heart rate data.

In my opinion, I wouldn’t recommend connecting Fitbit to S Health because the connection process is long and tedious. Additionally, you won’t get as much health and fitness data as you would with the Fitbit app, which is free.

I suggest you stick with the Fitbit app because it will provide you with more comprehensive health and fitness data than the Samsung Health app.
