Connecting Huawei devices with HeiaHeia

You can connect your Huawei device to HeiaHeia via your phone's health app. Find out how to connect your Huawei wearable.

HeiaHeia cannot be directly connected to Huawei devices, but if your data can be imported from your Huawei device to the Huawei Health app, which in turn is connected to Apple Health on your iPhone or Google Fit on your Android phone, you can also import your data into HeiaHeia.

iPhone:

  • If you haven't already downloaded the Huawei Health app, start by downloading it from the App Store.
  • When you open the app for the first time, Huawei Health will open a page where you can directly connect your Huawei Health to the Apple Health. Select the categories you want to sync and connect by tapping "Allow". This will transfer your data from Huawei Health to the Apple Health app on your phone. If you didn't connect when opening the app for the first time, you will find this content later under HealthKit. 
  • The next step is to connect the Apple Health app with HeiaHeia. See instructions here.
  • The connection is now established and you can check it in your phone's settings. Scroll down in the settings to Health -> Data and devices -> Apps. You should now see HUAWEI Health in the list. 
  • Sync your Huawei device to the Huawei Health app. The data should be imported into HeiaHeia after some time. 

 

Android-phones:

  • Start by connecting HeiaHeia with Google Fit. See instructions here. If you don't yet have the Google Fit app on your phone, download it from the Google Play app store first, open an account and then connect.  
  • Next, connect Huawei Health and Google Fit:
  1. In Huawei Health, select "Me" and then "Settings".
  2. Continue by selecting "Data sharing" and "Google Fit".
  3. Tap on "Link" at the bottom of the page. Next, select your account. Your email address should be the same as the email address on your Google Fit account. 
  4. Now Huawei Health and Google Fit are connected.  You can check this on the Link Button: it should now say Unlink. 
  5. Sync your Huawei device to the Huawei Health app. The data should be imported into HeiaHeia after some time.
