Which data can be synchronized with S-Health and how is it transferred?

This article will explain how and which data can be synchronized between YAZIO and Samsung Health.

  • Which data can be synchronized?
    Your data is transferred between YAZIO and Samsung Health depending on the respective authorization).
  • How is the activity data transferred from Samsung Health?
    Since Samsung Health has changed the processing of data for third parties, YAZIO calculates the calories burned.
  • Steps that are part of an activity are counted twice, both as an activity and as normal steps.
    If Samsung Health does not assign accurate steps to these activities, this issue may occur.

 

Which data can be synchronized?

Data transferred to YAZIO (depending on the set permissions):

  • activities
  • workouts
  • body values (various)

Data transferred to Samsung Health:

  • tracked foods
  • nutritional information

 

How is the activity data transferred from Samsung Health?

Unfortunately, Samsung Health has changed the way their data is processed by third-party apps. As a result, we don't receive a total of calories burned through activities but instead calculate the burned calories as follows:

The calories in your step counter in YAZIO should be the same as those shown in S-Health in Steps > Calories burnt. In case there are steps or calories missing in the step counter in YAZIO, these might be listed below the orange box as separate activities. This helps avoid that steps from activities are counted twice.

The total calories from activities below the step counter in YAZIO should be the same as the sum of the calories burned through exercise in S-Health, which you can see in "Exercise" > "View history".

YAZIO uses these two values to calculate your total burned calories. Since we don't have access to the total value of active energy calculated by S-Health, there can be slight discrepancies between YAZIO and S-Health.

Steps that are part of an activity are counted twice, both as an activity and as normal steps.

This problem can occur if Samsung Health doesn’t associate an activity with a specific number of steps. In such a case we, unfortunately, cannot correctly process this value. If these particular activities are automatically tracked as workouts, it can help to deactivate this feature in Samsung Health (Settings > Auto detect workouts).

Should this not solve the problem, please contact Samsung Health customer support. We unfortunately do not receive any more detailed data.

We hope that you were able to find answers to all your questions and wish you a great journey with YAZIO and Samsung Health.
