HealthKit is pretty smart with your data. For every source in the Health app, you can set the priority of difference apps. Tap one of the metrics in the Health app tap Share data > Edit to drag sources in the right order.
If other apps request data, HealthKit will automatically merge the datasets, probably based on timestamps. It picks the high priority ...
On iOS 8.0.x the health app does no syncing of any health kit data or configuration.
You only get the app on iPhone and iPod builds and there is no cloud component of the data. It resides on each device and only gets backed up to iCloud as a device backup and not synced like other things can in iCloud such as calendar and contacts data.
Best way I found was to:
Open Health App and head to Health data < All and use the arrow on the upper right of the screen then choose Export.
It will take a while if you have a data. You'll be able to get a ZIP file that you can mail to yourself.
Just use XCode and you should (at least!) be able to read your data. You could then use dropbox to sync it ...
Doing an encrypted backup on iTunes (unencrypted backups don't include health datas) and using a backup reader app, like iBackupbot (http://download.cnet.com/iBackupBot/3000-18553_4-75532275.html), that will ask you your backup password, you can get on your computer the healthdata folder which contains all your Health datas!
Third party developers can provide import functionality to health app via the normal Health Kit API on iOS.
Some apps scrape or use web API such as Sync Solver exist to get FitBit data from the cloud to the local health app on iOS.
Some such as Health Importer are more general. (proper disclosure: I work on this app)
We have an app on the store that is ...
On the main screen for health data there is an icon in the upper right (mine is a red silhouette of a person). If you press this icon the next screen gives an option to export data. It is easy to import data into Excel as an XML file. From there you can use normal Excel commands to filter, create charts etc.....
The activity rings have evolved with each watchOS release. The key is “stand and move” or “roll”. The accelerometers and pulse measurements in the hardware are extremely precise and I find accurate as well. Apple documents the “stand” ring here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204517
The Stand ring shows hours in which you've stood and moved for at ...
You cannot track medications in the Health app in the way you're describing. HealthKit does not have any medication data types. It's possible those screenshots were from an early/preview version of the Health app, but that feature definitely didn't make it into any shipping versions of Health.
As far as I researched the answer of Paul Veugen is only partially true. HealthKit does merge this Data if you use a HKStatisticsQuery or a HKStatisticsCollectionQuery. Otherwise it will be up to you, to provide a logic to merge/deduplicate the results.
One possible solution might be to use HKSourceQuery to Identify different sources and e.g. only select ...
Apple doesn't disclose the algorithms is uses to calculate these so you're going to need to reverse engineer it or hopefully find someone else who has reverse engineered it.
What is publicly known is that Apple has hired and contracted experts to make an entire team of research physiologists, cardiologists, dietitians, nurses as well as likely hundreds to ...
Lionheart Software actually just released an app called Health CSV Importer that does exactly this. Essentially, it takes pretty much any CSV you could throw at it, and pulls it into Apple Health.
Lionheart also has an app called Health Data Importer that transfers data from an old iPhone to a new one (without having to restore that phone from a backup).
If the watches are different, and the phones are different, then the only thing that appears to remain the same is you.
You don't mention, but have you ruled out the possibility of there being anything about you? For instance, I remember reading that tattoos could prevent the heart monitor obtaining a clear reading, and there was some talk about people with ...
If you have any 3rd party apps for health tracking, like Withings, they sometimes add onto your records.
My experience was my Withings app completely doubling my steps and distances. If you do have these apps, delete them or just turn of their accessibility to your health.

Sattva is the world’s first advanced meditation timer and tracker with challenges, trophies and guided meditations to inspire you to meditate everyday!
Has the features you requested:
Apple health kit integration for mindfulness (minutes)
Apple Watch app
disclaimer: I recently released a new app that displays your (lifetime) Apple Health and workouts data.
The app is called “Health Stats”. Health Stats is a free app (with a one-time premium in-app purchase) that allows you to easily view your health, activity and workout data from the Apple Health app. You can view this data for different date ranges such as:...
You should be able to delete the data relating to this via the Health app on your iPhone.
On your iPhone open the Health app
Tap on the Sources icon at bottom
At the bottom of the Sources screen you'll see a list of your devices - one of them will be for your Apple Watch. Tap on this.
Now you'll see a range of options - tap on the one ...
Neither you nor third-party developers can add fields to Health.
Working with the HealthKit Framework
The HealthKit framework is designed to share data between apps in a meaningful way. The framework constrains the types of data and units to a predefined list, ensuring that all apps understand what the data means and how it can be used. Developers cannot ...
After many months of trying different apps, the one that best addresses what I need is Timeless. Sattva does not log meditation time when you meditate on the watch. Timeless does, though you have to open the iPhone app after meditating to get it to log the time.
I'll just editorialize a little and say that it's crazy that, in the Mindfulness section of the ...
When you open the Health app, look at the bottom row of tab choices. On the far right you'll see one labeled Medical ID:
Tap on that and you should see a screen similar to this image:
Tap Edit on the top right (not shown in the picture above, I'm already in Edit mode). Go down to the Medications section and enter whatever medicine you want in there.
Cycling doesn't trigger the 'step' recognition the way actual steps do.
The subsystem responsible for the step sensor in fact does a great deal of work to filter out anything that isn't an actual step.
So the fact that some cycle moves make it through could actually be considered a flaw.
What actual cycling apps do instead is:
use the location service ...
It would seem that medication tracking was moved into CareKit from HealthKit.
"you’ll be able to regularly track your symptoms and medications" CareKit Site at Apple
And at the HealthKit Site, the note on ResearchKit and CareKit at the very bottom of the page:
"giving you tools to track things like your symptoms and medications," HealthKit Site at Apple
The whole thing's weird... it says 7k steps but the top line shows 3k, Walk/run again, 10m, but the top line is only 5... & repeat for the flights.
The top line ought to be the next 'sensible' number above the highest single point recorded for that day/week/month.
I'd try at least a reboot if not a restore.
The issue with waiting forever to view the ...
Apple allows you to inspect all data using the Health app itself. In addition to the graphs it prepares, you can tap the graph and then Show All Data
As you know, there's no export function on iOS itself, but there's no reason any third party app can't request access to that data (which you also can see and approve from the Share Data tab of that app.
