    Is it possible to have multiple devices feeding health app? For instance, if someone had a misfit shine, and a Microsoft band could they both send steps to the Health App? Not at the same time but whichever one is used for certain activities. I am thinking about getting a Withings scale too. I am going to cut Fitbit out, the trackers and the Aria scale.

    Don't know specifics re: different monitor hardware, but Health App lets you prioritize your sources.

    For example, under "Walking + Running Distance", three data sources are listed for my setup (phone, Health App, Human app) and can be reordered to set which ones take precedence.

    In the OP case, probably setup the Steps measurement to have one device first, the other second, everything else after, that way the devices will override the builtin motion sensor.
