Does Wyze Scale Work with Apple Health?
The Wyze Scale is an all-in-one device that measures your weight, blood pressure, and body fat; when you step on a Wyze Scale, you get more than your weight; you get an entire health panel. With that said, you may be wondering whether the Wyze Scale is compatible with other apps such as Apple Health so you can sync biometric data.
The Wyze Scale not only works with Apple Health, but it also works with Fitbit and Google Fit. You can sync Wyze with Apple Health by doing so in the app. Apple Health will record your “steps” and walking and running speed and distance to give more insight into your weight loss regimen.

Does the Wyze Scale Work with Apple Health?
Users of Apple smartphones will be happy to know that the Wyze Scale is compatible with Apple Health, so you can sync the two devices together to exchange key biometric data taken from your scale, smartphone, or Apple Watch.
Remember: only iPhones have Apple Health. If you have an Android, you will have to rely on Google Fit as your fitness app instead.
How to Sync Wyze with Apple Health
Syncing the Wyze app with Apple Health is easy. Here are the steps you will need to follow:
- Open the Wyze app.
- Select your scale.
- Choose the gear and navigate to the app’s settings.
- Tap Authorize Third-Party Apps.
- Select Apple Health.
- Choose Authorize, then follow the prompts on the screen.
You do not need to download Apple Health, as it should come pre-installed on your phone. You can get the Wyze app either from the Apple Store or from the Google Play Store.
How to Sync Wyze Scale to Apple Watch
One of the most remarkable things about Apple Health is that it connects to your Apple Watch. Simply affix the device to your wrist, and, if you’ve enabled third-party apps, it will track your steps, how many flights of stairs you climbed, and how many calories you’ve burned. All of that information will go right to the Wyze app, which goes to the scale itself.
Through the Apple Watch, you can even set goals tailored to measure your exercise routines and everyday movements. It will even vibrate when the day is nearly over to get you back on track.
An Alternative to the Apple Watch: Wyze Activity Band
Don’t want to connect your Wyze Scale with an Apple Watch? Fear not; Wyze has a fitness tracker that syncs perfectly with the scale. The Wyze Activity Band measures your:
- Daily step count
- Hours of sleep
- Heart rate
Additionally, you can also pair it with your smartphone or Alexa. Not only is it substantially less expensive than Fitbit, but it also measures things that Fitbit cannot.
Troubleshooting Apple Health and Wyze Scale Connection
Some users have noted that sometimes, Apple Health does not upload information to their Wyze Scales. This is a small issue that can be fixed in a matter of minutes. Here are some things to try:
Reset Apple Health
This method depends on what type of phone you have. If you have an iPhone 8 or earlier, tap twice on the home button, navigate to Apple Health, and swipe up. This will “force quit” the app, and upon opening it, it will recalibrate to your scale. If you have a newer model, you can perform the same function by:
- Navigating to the home screen
- Swiping up from the bottom
- Pausing once your open apps appear
- Swiping until you find Apple Health
- Swiping up
If this doesn’t work, try resetting your phone itself.
Make Sure That Wyze Has Third-Party Sharing Enabled
For whatever reason, something might have changed your Wyze app’s settings. This could be the case if you uninstalled the app or factory reset your phone. Follow the steps above to enable third-party app sharing.
Your Wyze Scale not only works with Apple Health, but it works with a variety of apps that track your weight, steps, and other activity. For more information on how to use Wyze with Apple Health, click here.
