Hi I've just got a galaxy watch 5 and I.love it but the app info is nowhere near as good as the info you get on your fit bit app, is there any other health apps that can  work with the galaxy watch to or can link the info with your galaxy watch to your fitbit app?
Thanks 😁

You can install Google Fit on your Watch5. Google Fit and Fitbit apps should be able to connect and exchange info with each other.

You could also install Health Connect on your phone (it is from Google and is still in beta). Enable access to Health Connect in the settings of Samsung Health, Google Fit, Fitbit apps. The data should sync between these apps ( based on the permissions you have allowed). Check if this setup works for you.

I have no experience of the Fitbit and have found Samsung Health  generally meets my needs (Galaxy Watch 4 is my first smart watch and would say not really one of the biggest health fanatics  🙂 ).  Room for some improvements mind you ,  have not tried Google Fit yet.   According to this article Samsung Health fares relatively well.  https://www.theunfolder.com/samsung-health-vs-google-fit/ 

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.
