Cronometer not sending food data to Google Fit?

edited January 2020 in Bug Reports

I use Cronometer to (besides logging my food) send this information through Google Fit so it can be shown in another app called Strong.

This works fine when I use MyFitnessPal (which I absolutely hate with a passion).

However, when using Cronometer, it doesn't seem to work.

Google Fit unfortunately doesn't seem to have any way in the app to see your food logged, but it does definitely receive and store this information because it has successfully pushed all of this info to another app for me.

Has anyone else been able to share their food data from Cronometer through Google Fit and have it display in a third app? Also, does anyone know if any way at all to view food information in Google Fit? I cannot seem to find a way to do this at all.

Also, is there a way to make sure that Google Fit does not send any data BACK to Cronometer? I want data to pass only from Cronometer TO Google Fit (not the other way around). Because at current it seems to be syncing two-ways and that means I get 2 weight readings. Cronometer could you please give us an option for only one-way sync (i.e. export from Cronometer only)

EDIT: @Hilary

I found this post from you last April:

It's quite unclear because you use the word import twice. Am I to understand that Cronometer does not export any data to Google Fit at all? If I am correct, why is this the case and can you please change it? This is a serious loss of functionality as it means that Cronometer cannot use Google Fit as a medium to pass through a lot of data to third-party apps.

Can you please make this a big priority as it means that Cronometer is literally unable to pass its data anywhere outside of its own app... it makes using your app for logging food pointless if I wish to share that information with another app.


  • Hi @DBB our current connection with Google fit does not allow data to be exported from Cronometer. We do import data from Google fit.
    Thanks for your request I will certainly add it to our list for prioritization - we have had this request before and it is on our radar!

    Is there any update on this? You guys are great at tracking nutrition and all, but you aren't an aggregation platform. That is Google Fit's job. Please update the app so it can send food data to Google Fit.

  • Hi Ricotter,

    No update at this time. I'll add your feedback to bump up this feature request!

  • Thanks Karen, I hope you mean that. I love Cronometer because of the micronutrient tracking, but I much prefer having all my data in an aggregation platform, so without this service I'm forced to use a competitor app that feeds data into Google Fit or Samsung Health.

  • Hello,

    I would like to see this option also. Cronometer is great tool for tracking micronutrients, but interface is outdated, so I would like to see data from Cronometer in the Google Fit.

  • Hello,

    I am also very interested in this functionality.
    Are there any updates?
    What is your outlook for implementing this feature?

    Cronometer is the best nutrition app I've found thus far, but this missing functionality is a big demerit as it prevents me from easily using my information to see how my nutrition habits are affecting or being affected by other health factors or events.

    Please update us on this feature.

  • Same here!
    I'm very interested in cronometer implementing food diary sync to Google Fit.
    Unfortunately there is no visible progress with this issue by now....

  • This is not a feature that is currently under development. Thanks for your feedback so we can take that into consideration for our future projects.

  • You guys are useless. It's one of the most used apps for the entire Android platform. It is completely inexcusable that you don't have this integration.

  • I hear that you feel strongly about bringing nutrition data to Google Fit @Ricotter
    While we're not working on it in the immediate future, we reprioritize projects when we get more customer support, or someone here on the team to champions the cause.

  • I'd also really like to have two way data transfer between Google fit and cronometer. At the moment I have to manually add data via another app to get my nutrition information so it can aggregate with other data. Its really poor that you don't allow this because cronometer is one of the best nutrition apps on the market. Most if your competitors already fully integrate with Google Fit.
