connecting Cronometer, Withings Sports HR, and Apple Health
I just got a Withings Sports HR and am seeking the best way to connect this triad of devices/apps. I have not had very good luck with connecting Cronometer, Apple Health and the Withings Health Mate app so far as there has been a lot of double counting. (I won't go into that here as that deserves its own thread.) This is what I am thinking of doing –
- Write all the nutrition in Cronometer and have it write it out to Apple Health
- Enter body weight, body fat, and various measurements (height, waist, hips, neck, etc.) directly into Apple Health and have Cronometer read them from Apple Health
- Have the Withings watch write steps, distance, heart rate and active energy (plus any other exercises that I might hav the watch track for me) to Apple Health and have Cronometer read those values from Apple Health (not from Withings directly).
The idea is to have each device/app do what it is designed for, and have it send the data to Apple Health. Then distribute the data to other devices/apps from Apple Health as applicable.
Does that make sense?
