  1. fitbit

    Since Band has been discontinued, allow those of us that have moved to other trackers, allow connect other trackers like to fitbit to Microsoft Health service. This was a great service and it would be a shame to lose it...

      I like the new weight tracking feature but how come it does not sync with health vault? All other important information is synced and I have been tracking my weight in health vault for a couple of years now...

      • Make microsoft health offline

        Can we please have the Microsoft Health App work offline.
        I've finished a trek across the Boundary Waters out of Ely, MN, take a look at a map and you'll see how big this camping reservation is. Throughout the entire time I was there I had no internet and was not able to even count my steps.
        There are hundreds or even thousands of people who are without internet at times and this would benefit them as well.
        Especially those of us who do go outdoors and go exploring, how are we to maintain the use of a great health…

        • Add a Microsoft Health API to export tracking data

          Currently you can export data (crudely) as CSVs, but this is inadequate for two reasons:
          1) you have to manually sign in to the Health dashboard - there's no easy way to generate an application-specific authentication token; you need a full-blown Microsoft Account session, which I'm uncomfortable putting even on my own server, let alone creating an app for other people to log in with.

          2) You can only export per-activity and per-day, rather than finer time segments like minute or hour.

          The full underlying OData API should be exposed to developers with OAuth authentication.

            • Two way synching with other popular apps

              I would setup an API that allows two way posting between apps. If I enter details in MyFitnessPal it would post to MS HealthVault and vice versa.

              This gives us the greatest flexibility.

              • S-health

                As a Samsung Android user moving to an MS phone I want to take my S-health data with me. I need MS to take advantage of Samsung's SDK so that I can import my historic data into MS Health and so sync with MS Health Vault.

                  • Provide access to finer grained step tracking data through the Cloud API

                    As the Cloud API currently stands it is not possible to get step based activity data (walking) at a sufficiently fine grained level to provide meaningful analysis of same.

                    I would like to be able to retrieve a log of when a user started and stopped moving and for how many steps... This would enable developers to look at periods of movement to determine active times, total active time and times when a user has performed extended periods of activity to name but a few.

                    This could be achieved in a number of ways, but a simple way would be…

                      • Allow Cloud SDK to perfom manipulation on data

                        With the RSS/JSON feed there's no way to manipulate data - eg to take a feed that has temperatures in C and convert to F within the manifest... the only solution would be to stand up a proxy and perform the translations .... would be great if the manifest could include the ability to run formulas against the data

                        • Expose OData endpoint for Cloud API

                          The OData protocol lets services declare their interface in a standard way. If Cloud API exposed an OData endpoint, as a web developer I could avoid needing to write new code to handle data types and next links.

                                      • Post Data through the Clould API

                                        Many of us have more then one band. We need to post data from non-Microsoft devices to MC cloud for Microsoft Health app.
                                        We don't ask for sync app. We ask about ability in Cloud API to accept data from non MS devices. Microsoft Health app is great app, it will be awesome if it can also display data from user FitBit or GoogleFit accounts.

                                        BTW: GoogleFit and FitBit API allow to add data from 3rd party stores. Even we can do it for Apple Health (indirect but it is possible).
