HealthKit "active energy" dlacykusters — Sep 18, 2015 03:00PM PDT

I use an Apple Watch. Instead of syncing activities and steps, I would like to sync the "active energy" data in HealthKit with MyFitnessPal. Essentially, if HealthKit says I burned 631 calories, I want MyFitnessPal to give me credit for 631 calories. Is this possible?

Thank you for contacting us regarding your Apple Watch integration. At this time we are currently only reading the step data and individual “other” workouts sent from the watch via what transfers directly from Healthkit. We are not yet considering the active calories amount, also being measured by the watch.

In the meantime, you may notice that your total calorie burn showing on the watch, does not match the total being reported to MyFitnessPal by the Healthkit. This is to be expected. Please do, however, let us know if your step count is not matching up or you are not seeing your “other” workouts displayed in your MyFitnessPal Diary as “Apple Health Exercises.”

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work out all the kinks. We will also do our best to update the following link as we have more information available:

Please let us know if you have any other problems or questions.

Warm Regards,
Scott H
