Apple Health Integration

How does the integration with Apple Health work?

Progress and Apple Health can share data with each other so if you are using both apps you won’t need to input certain entries twice.

Progress can write data to Apple Health for the following:

  • Weight
  • Body Fat Percentage (BF%)
  • Lean Body Mass (LBM)
  • Waist Circumference
  • Body Mass Index (BMI)

Progress can read data for the following from Apple Health:

  • Weight
  • Body Fat Percentage (BF%)
  • Waist Circumference

Progress can also read data from Apple Health for the following to plot on charts (however please note that this data is not stored by Progress):

  • Active Energy
  • Dietary Energy
  • Dietary Sugar
  • Steps
  • Total Dietary Fat
  • Lean Body Mass

When you go to the ‘Add Measurements’ tab in Progress, if there is already an entry for weight for today in Apple Health, the weight screen will skip, and the entry that was made in Apple Health will be recorded in Progress. If there isn’t an entry for today but there is one from yesterday or before, Progress will preset the entry to this value – you’ll see the status bar change briefly to say where the data came from. The same process also applies to Body Fat Percentage and Waist Circumference.


Here’s how to enable the integration with Apple Health

  • Open the Settings app
  • Tap on Health
  • Tap on Data Access & Devices
  • Find 'Progress'
  • Make sure everything is green, if it isn't tap 'Turn All Categories On'

If you find these permissions are enabled, but it's not working, try toggling the permissions on and off, other users have reported this as fixing it. If you find it still not working after that, please get in touch.
