    So I know it's early, but based on what Fitbit and Apple allow, is it a possibility to transfer all my data(steps/floors) from my Fitbit account to Apple to continue on with the Apple Watch? I know there's an app that will merge Fitbit data into the Health app, but only recent data. I'm hoping to transfer everything, or at least from the beginning of the year.

    The other option would be since Fitbit supports multiple devices, anyone know if I can use the Fitbit app but sync the steps/floors from the Apple Watch instead of a Fitbit? I guess you can use the iPhone itself, but I'm not sure how that even works.

    No, how would being able to do such a thing benefit apple? Apple doesn't do anything unless it helps the bottom line.
    Of course ultimately I don't know crap about it..... same with anyone her on MR so I could be wrong.

    I would think it would benefit Apple, allowing people to transfer the data they have makes it easier to go ahead and switch to the Apple Watch.

    People will switch anyway...... making it easier to transfer the data won't change that.

    True. I was hoping since Sync Solver app is able to accomplish it with the last few days or week or something, that it would be possible to sync it all. It does seem, like the limitation of Sync Solver is actually on Fitbits side of it, not Apples.

    Yeah, maybe I'll just keep my fingers crossed for a solution one way or another. Maybe a Fitbit Apple a Watch App?

    Otherwise I'm sure I'll get over losing all my data eventually:(. I'm actually thinking I'll get a Fitbit One to replace my Fitbit a Charge HR, that way I can clip it to my pants and wear the Apple Watch on my wrist.

    Nike Fuel is already integrated, but only goes back to the week of Feb 13th when the app was integrated into healthkit. The app is still required if you want to see all your data going back years.

    Fitbit has been really ****** about letting "their" data go, you can't even download it unless you pay for a "pro" account. It's one of the reasons I dropped Fitbit around a year ago. They have publicly stated that they have no plans to integrate with Health Kit, they want their "own" ecosystem and seem to claim ownership of my health data. I was able to get Sync Solver to work pretty well for me though.

    I backed up my phone and restored to 8.2 from 8.1.2. Then restored from backup. My health data did not get restored. If Apple can't back up and transfer its own data, I don't hold out much hope for the data from a 3rd party device.

    Fitbit's failure to add HealthKit integration means that this is largely impossible.

    Also, FitBit is the new BlackBerry. Their demise will likely take place on a faster timeline, though.
