    Up does not seem to work with HealthKit although they have it on sale. I am wondering which activity Band will work well with IOS 8.1 HealthKit? I know the iWatch works but that is still away till next year. Thanks

    As far as I know, there are no bands that talk directly to Health. There may be some, that perhaps have an app associated with it, that writes and reads to Health.

    Me...im selling my Fitbit and Aria scale and spending time trying out various Health connected apps (Argus, Breeze, Human, Lark, Moves (until they sold out).

    All of this to buy time till I cop the Apple Watch.

    Pulse O2 Tracker
    Wireless Scale

    I think their Health Mate app talks to the Health App.

    I'm really frustrated that Fitbit has decided to not support HeathKit:mad: I got so excited after seeing the ChargeHR

    I have the jawbone up24 and it works well with health kit. It puts all my steps and sleep in there. I also use the nike fuel band 1, now that doesn't put anything in healthkit but it's own app works fine. Basically no band will automatically place information into the health kit app section. You have to download the app for say jawbone, allow it to sync with health kit and go from there. I sync my band every morning in the jawbone app, then switch to health kit to see the data laid out. It might be a few extra steps but I'm ok with it, I'm not a hardcore activities guy by any means. I usually just walk and track the steps I have done throughout the day at work as well as my sleep habits.
