How do I connect Fitbit with another app without using Health Connect?
  1. Log in to your account on the app or website of a company that offers Fitbit integration, such as MyFitnessPal or Runkeeper.
  2. Find the option to connect another account, often under "Apps" or "Connect."
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions and log in to Fitbit when prompted.
Strava
  1. Visit strava.fitbit.com and click Connect.
  2. Log in to your Strava account.
  3. When prompted, authorize Strava to connect to Fitbit and follow the on-screen instructions.

Your Fitbit activities will appear on Strava, and runs and rides tracked with Strava will contribute to your all-day Fitbit stats. To export your Fitbit GPS data to Strava, see How do I export my Fitbit data?

Note that the following types of activities won't sync to Strava:

  • Non-GPS activities
  • Previous activities that weren’t tracked by Strava
  • Duplicate activities (if you already recorded an activity with Strava, a Fitbit activity that occurs at the same time won't sync)
After you link your accounts for Fitbit and Strava, you may see some differences in the way data is calculated for your exercises on each site. For more information, see Strava's Calorie Calculation article.

Notes:

Data shared with third-party developers is governed by the developers’ privacy policies and terms of service. Fitbit cannot remove information they store once you give them permission to access your Fitbit data. You can revoke access for an app at any time by visiting your app settings.

Apps created by third-party developers must follow the API Terms of Service. If you believe an app is not following these policies, please contact our support team at dev.fitbit.com/build/reference/web-api/help. When a third-party app requests permission to access or modify your Fitbit data, it lists the specific types of data it would like permission for. These permissions map to specific Fitbit API requests the app will be able to make on your behalf.

For information on developing your own third-party app, see dev.fitbit.com.
