Integrating Apple Health with Cronometer

Data is super important when it comes to nailing your health and wellness goals. With the integration of Cronometer and Apple Health, users have a tool at their disposal to track their nutrition and exercise in one seamless experience. This combo is all about helping you make smart choices for your health and fitness by bringing together your exercise info and biometrics right into your Cronometer account.

Apple Health & Cronometer Frequently Asked Questions

Why is my sleep data from Apple Health incorrect in Cronometer?

If you are importing sleep into Apple Health using a third-party app, this could be the reason your sleep data is showing incorrectly.

You can fix this issue by changing the permissions for the third-party app within Apple Health to ‘Read Only’. This will make sure that sleep data from the third-party app isn’t exported back to Apple Health. 

Open the Apple Health app
Tap on Sharing
Tap on Apps and Services
Tap on *name of third party app*
Toggle off all permissions under ALLOW “*name of third party app*” TO WRITE
