Hi Guys - I just got a Samsung Gear Fit 2 and to my disappointment, it didn't connect to Spark or Google Fit. I spent all day downloading different apps to figure out a way and I finally did! If you go to the Play Store, you can download an app called Health Sync. It will sync your S Health stats to Google Fit, which will sync to Spark. It's kind of a crazy work around, so it does take a bit to sync over stats... I think my first sync took a little over an hour, but it does work!

Sorry, we still don't have any plans for those at this point.

Thanks for the update. Google Fit does not track food. I would like to see if the Gear or S-Health to connect to Sparkpeople. Any possibilities?

We are still considering it, but don't have any plans at this time. the meantime, if you have an android phone, you could use google fit to get data to us. I know it's not the same, but it is an option.

Any updates on supporting Samsung Gear 2? It looks like it has been well over a year.

I meant to get back to you before now, life sure gets busy! This daisy chain didn't work, primarily because I had read incorrect information...the runkeeper app does NOT sync w/ S Health. I think at one time they were working on making that happen, but it never did, or if it did, they later disabled this option. I ended up uninstalling runkeeper.

Something I'm going to look into...Runkeeper syncs with Sparks...and I read somewhere that Runkeeper also syncs with S Health, and S Health syncs with the Gear Fit...so...MAYBE if I add the Runkeeper app to my phone I can form some kind of syncing daisy chain to get my data from my device to Sparks???

I'll download it tonight when I'm home from work and see if this works or if I'm like the lady on the commercial where the other lady said, "that's not how it works, that's not how any of this works!" emoticon

I've just ordered my Gear Fit too. I had gotten a garmin HR that did sync, but I found the band uncomfortable so exchanged for Gear Fit. I would rather manually log than wear something uncomfortable, but being a spoiled princess I'd sure love to have the best of both! emoticon

Any chance that syncing with the Samsung gear fit will be in the near future?

Sorry, currently, you can only sync the Spark Activity Tracker, Fitbit, and Jawbone UP.
