Hey, all!

In this article, we will show you how to connect Apple Health to Heads Up.

Syncing Apple Health to Heads Up is a lot like syncing with any other device, except with one caveat: the Apple Health connection can only be made on a mobile iOS device.

After connecting Apple Health on the Heads Up mobile app, the option to add Apple Health tiles on the Heads Up web app will be available.ย 

Important note: the data from Apple Health can only sync and re-sync from an iPhone. iPad's do not have Apple Health and data is not made available.

Note: If you do not have data for a specific Apple Health metric, the option to add the tile will not be made available.

After any syncing or re-syncing is complete, please ensure you can see the data in the Heads Up mobile app prior to visiting the Heads Up web app. If the data is not present in the mobile app, the data will not show in the web app.

To view a list of all the supported data types from Apple Health, please visit the article: "Which metrics can I sync from Apple Health?"
