How to connect a wearable device with HeiaHeia

If you use a Nokia (former Withings), Fitbit, Suunto, Garmin, Polar or a Microsoft Band wearable, you can bring your workouts and activity data to HeiaHeia. 


You can import data from Apple Health (see guide) and Google Fit (see guide) along with data from third party-applications compatible with Apple Health and Google Fit (Strava, etc.).


The easiest way to connect your device is via the HeiaHeia mobile application. 

Via iOS-app (Apple)

 

  • Select Account > Wearable devices > Swipe toggle on for the device you wish to connect with HeiaHeia


Via Android-app


  • Select Menu > Wearable devices > Select your device

Via Web-page



  • Select Account > Settings > Wearables > Choose your device and connect with HeiaHeia





Please note the following when making the connection: 



If HeiaHeia doesn’t recognize a sport/activity type, it will import as your device + import (e.g. Polar import) and the entry will be set to private. You can edit both the privacy setting (from private to public) and the sport/activity type (simply choose the appropriate sport/activity from our list).


  • Some devices won’t automatically synchronize data in your HeiaHeia account. If entries recorded in your device aren’t showing in HeiaHeia, please check to see that data is being synchronized between your device and the service provider in question. If data isn’t being synced, please follow the synchronization instructions for your device and the service provider. You can usually perform a manual synchronization via the service provider’s mobile application.
  • If you want to remove your device from HeiaHeia, go back to where you activated the connection. Garmin requires going through the Garmin Connect service (https://connect.garmin.com): Click the profile icon > Settings > Account information > Applications > Remove permission > HeiaHeia.
  • Your entire activity history will not be imported when connecting a new wearable or health/fitness app with HeiaHeia, only data from the past week.
  • If you are using multiple devices and services simultaneously (such as a smartwatch and a mobile health app), HeiaHeia picks the highest metrics when storing your daily activity data.
