    I really like the look and functionality of Lifesum, but the Health integration (when combined with the watch) is a complete mess.

    Despite the recent Lifesum update, it still seems to be double counting steps. It doesn't seem to pull data from step count, but rather distance walk+run statistic and then adds the value from the Watch and the iPhone. I've tried turning on and off different configurations of this, but nothing seems to work.

    It does a good job of pulling the exercises that I log with the Apple watch, but certainly not the calories burned from steps and "Motion" that the Apple watch tracks. Is there a way to mirror the data coming from the Apple watch Activity ring?

    The whole Health integration + Apple Activity stats + 3rd party apps is a real nightmare.

    Hi, I use Lifesum On iPhone and Apple Watch. I enjoy the calorie count by activity, it is rather the same on watch and lifesum. Now I started using Runkeeper and if I use it to register a walk, these calories also add to lifesum, together with the calories couned automatically by lifesum. So should I manually delete de Runkeeper calories, to be correct? Also, this morning lifesum counted 150 calories and Runkeeper 350 for the same walk. Which one to believe and work with? Thx!!
