Data Export added to Fitbit Premium


Have you ever wanted to get your hands on your Fitbit raw data?  Create your own fancy charts in Excel?  Keep a copy on your hard drive, just for safe keeping?  Or maybe print out your sleep numbers and hang them on the fridge?

Well, we just added Data Export to Fitbit Premium.  With Data Export you can download Body, Food, Activity and Sleep Data.  All the information you download is daily summary data (ie. total steps for a day, not steps per minute or hour.)

Here is what you get!

  • Body Data includes your Daily Weight, BMI and Fat.
  • Food Data includes your Daily Calorie Count.
  • Activity Data includes Calories Burned, Steps, Distance, Minutes Sedentary, Minutes Lightly Active, Minutes Fairly Active, Minutes Very Active, Activity Calories and Active Score.
  • Sleep Data includes Minutes asleep, Minutes Awake, Number of Awakenings and Time in Bed.
Getting your hands on the data opens up a whole new world of analysis and insight.  Find something interesting or a new way to look at Fitbit data?  Share it with the Fitbit Community.  Happy data explorations!

    This sounds fun! Can data be downloaded retroactively or only from the point in time you sign up for the premium account?

    Is there a plan to included info/minute (ie Steps) rather than just the summary? It’s a shame not to provide all the info that is tracked to your users.

    Any plans to include time data (in addition to date data) in exports for Blood Pressure? This information is useful in some situations, given that BP measurements vary during the day.

    The premium data export kind of sounds good but not enough to buy the premium service. It’s a completely manual export! If it could be an RSS page or XML or some such, it would be much more useful and I’d sign up for the premium service. Who’s going to manual export all the time? The only other choice for getting interesting data is the API which is not doable for most people (including me).
