I use the iFit Vue activity tracker. Sure would love to link that to my annual subscription of Cronometer!!!
I would love to see further integration with Apple Healthkit. As example, someone above mentioned Omron integration. I get this using Healthkit - Omron App->Healthkit->Cronometer. Others mention fitness trackers - I also get this via Healthkit
Polar H10-> FITIV(workout app)->Healthkit->Cronometer. I really love seeing the impact of exercise and the extra available calories! Currently you write nutrition data to healthkit (dietary energy) but don't read. I wish to add a smart kitchen scale to further automate data collection. If you would read nutrition data there are already scales that interoperate with Healthkit so same process - scale->scale app->healthkit->cronometer. I believe Google fit is the android equivalent. Cover that and health kit and you cover android/apple integrations.
Other thoughts - would love to see my weight tracked against the projected weight loss based on my goals. The current weight chart + projected weight loss + either calories consumed or calories deficit would be very helpful/motivating.
I'm looking for TrainingPeaks integration, but Strava would be sufficient. While it's less professional than TrainingPeaks, Strava definitely wins the popularity contest.
I would love to be able to import or copy recipes from Paprika recipe manager into Cronometer. It would be a great time saver.
Being able to import weight from the Happy Scale app would be awesome!
Hi @Aaron - have you had your attorneys look at the Open Food Facts license? IANAL, but it does seem to explicitly allow commercial use:

A tie in to heads up health would be fantastic
I'd like to see Letscom fitness tracker which is affordable and efficient does most of what Fitbit can do at a fraction of the cost. It uses VeryFitPro app and would be nice if it was linked to Chronometer somehow.
@John_Vance Thanks for the suggestion of using the Open Food Facts Database. Here at Cronometer, we take pride in curating an accurate and complete database. Every user submitted food is reviewed by our curation team before being added to the database. We do not analyse nutrients here at Cronometer, therefore we have to rely upon sources who do analyze nutrients for our database in order to ensure our data is accurate. You can see the databases we choose from here https://cronometer.com/help/foods/#data
I perused the open food facts website at your suggestion, and found that unfortunately their database is not curated and as such we cannot verify that their nutrition information is accurate. You can see more about this on their FAQ page at https://world.openfoodfacts.org/faq#data_verification
This is not to say that it wouldn't be a good resource for the public in a pinch if you want a good estimate for something, and you are always welcome to use that information to create a custom food on Cronometer for yourself, but we will not be able to add data from open food facts to our database.
As always, any and all postings here are covered by our T&Cs:
I enter my food tracking within a minute or two before/after I eat. I would love a chart showing my intermittent fasting time tracked by last food entered on previous day to first food entered on current day to calculate fasting time and a chart showing hours/minutes fasted per day.
auto publish results daily to blog, etc
Hey! Hope I am not too late to the conversation. I am using biostrap and would love to see an integration with it.
The new version of the Oura ring comes out soon, I'm so hoping that it becomes integrated with cronometer! Doesn't Dr. Mercola use it personally?!
I would like to see Cronometer export Tap Water values to Fitbit so I can see my water intake on the Fitbit App dashboard as well as in Cronometer. I like to track everything in Cronometer but I do use the Fitbit dashboard for some of their graphs. Having water pushed to Fitbit in addition to the calories, macros, etc. are now will be very helpful.
I would love to see a two way data integration with the major health tracking platforms (GoogleFit, SHealth, AppleHealth). This way we could import relevant data into Cronometer, but also use Cronometer data exported to those platforms to perform further analysis in combination with tracking data from other sources.
@AxelB we do already have two-way integrations with Apple Health and Google Fit -- you can set those up from within our respective iOS and Android apps.
Would love to see a "wireless" connected food scale integration of some sort. If this already exists in some way, please let me know.
@Hilary That's a valid reason not to use that source then. Your commitment to the integrity of your sources is the main reason I'm using Cronometer and not LoseIt or MFP.
I would like to see the official german foods database (called "Bundeslebensmittelschlüssel") integrated. This is already curated, which should make it easier. Anyway, I see that's probably not a priority, but I haven't found a tracker with the functionality of cronometer for the German market and most interested people speak English sufficiently, so maybe you want to think about it.
Qardio, I have the scale and blood pressure cuff. https://www.getqardio.com/en
Alexa, please, please, please!!!!!
Alexa, please, please, please!
did I mention HeadsUpHealth, Omron, and the Concept 2 rowing log yet?
Have you got documentation anywhere explaining how 2-way Apple Health integration works? (Also, you might want to update the various threads on your forums where you've stated that integration is one-way only.) I'm trying to hack together an approach that will let me log foods in Cronometer through another app, but I can't actually find anywhere that you've mapped out what Cronometer imports FROM Apple health.
My hope, FWIW, is to do one of the following:
Alexa Nutritionix Skill >> Nutritionix account >> Apple Health >> Cronometer
Smart scale (brand TBD) >> Apple Health >> Cronometer
I'll admit, my dive into the Healthkit developer documentation did not actually help me figure out whether Apple Health can even accept nutritional logging in a form that would allow it to pass that through to Cronometer. (I guess I'd imagined HealthKit including some kind of fieldset for foodItem + foodItemQuantity -- but no I'm not a developer, and yes I can see how that is probably a tall order. ) So maybe I'm just dreaming to think this is even remotely possible. Maybe I'd be better of switching to the nutritionix app so I can log via Alexa. But I am in a good Cronometer groove! So I'd love to find a way to stick with you.
Can you advise if the Nokia integration includes the HR Steel watch ?
Mi Band 2 integration, or better integration with Google Fit (which works with a ton of devices already). I use the web app but at the end of each day I have to load the android app to make sure it's logged everything from Google Fit.
Sort of an integration - use a URL to import a recipe from a website. No website in particular, since I use so many! Thanks for asking!
I'm a new gold user, but adding a recipe import feature would be huge. 90% of what I eat is a recipe. The idea of typing 30 or 40 recipes in is overwhelming. Realplans.com (meal planning service) is a perfect example of how to do this. You can literally copy/paste a a recipe, and realplans is smart enough to parse it out, including the measurements.
I understand it would be difficult to support every format/service, but even if you could provide an import template (for food, biometrics, ....), that would be a significant time saver.
It would be amazing if Cronometer could recognize a correlation between symptoms (eg indigestion, poor sleep, acne) and what I consume, and let me know what it spots. I try to do this for myself, but having Cronometer's AI support would be dope!
