Is there a way to sync My Fitness Pal and S health??? I went into My Fitness Pal app and it shows they are paired together, but the information from S health is not there. Im getting sick of adding my foods to both apps, not to mention none of my workouts are on My fitness pal, but they are on s health. Help me Woman Sad

I had the same issue for me it worked when I gave all permissions to both sides.

Agree, tried to do this while limiting the data going from MFP to Samsung Health (was looking for a oneway street on calorie/food data only as I like MFP for calories, but SH for all else). No good until I allowed all access both read and write. Just fyi, good luck.

Using iOS (iPhone XR) with Gear S3 Froniter and MyFitnessPal app on phone along with Samsung Health on phone.

 

When I go to MyFitnessPal > More (3 dots) > Apps & Devices > I do not see Samsung Health. Am I missing something? I do see iOS Health though.

 

Also in Samsung Health, when I  try to connect to MyFitnessPal under data permissions it says No Services.

 

Suggestions?

Does this also work if you only want the food to come across?

I know post is past 6 mo, but Yes, it will give you the option to choose what to sync.

Ok, so the above does work.... However, when you connect S Health to MyFitnessPal a progress ring will be spinning in the top right corner.  When I noticed this spinning (after reinstalling multiple times) I decided to wait until the progress ring stopped.  Once the progress ring stopped I exited the apps and devices screen and everything synced immediately!!!!  Was getting so frustrated with this, hopefully this will resolve everyone else's syncing issues.

I figured it out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK so after suffering for several months here is what I did to fix the issue.

 

#try skipping step 1&2 first to save some time. 

 

1) Uninstall Samsung Health and My Fitness Pal.

 

2) Reinstall both apps and sign into each.

 

3) In Samsung Health Open settings, Data Permissions, MyFitnessPal (Must be installed), toggle on all switches for READ AND WRITE.

 

4) In MyFitnessPal Open settings, My Apps&Devices, Select Samsung Health, Select Connect... (This is what I was missing the entire time.)

 

These instructions should absolutely work for everyone on android and possibly similiar in IOS, atleast until either apps are redesigned again..

 

Hope this helps.
