    The syncing of body composition such as lean mass to Apple Health is not possible yet and I am waiting for this to be implemented for a while now. I hope that Withings can integrate this data as soon as possible.

    This is a major reason I bought this scale. Is there a way we can request this update so we don’t have to manually do this? It seems so easy to get the lbs it lean muscle to update with each sync.

    I am also very surprised that it tracks such data but doesn’t sync it to my iPhone

    This is a glaring omission. Proper integration with Apple Health is a critical function of these scales and makes me tempted to return them and buy a model which reports properly to Apple Health. The scales have sensed all the data they need, the app just needs to do a very simple calculation and output the result to Apple Health. This would be such an easy fix to the app but nine months later Withings hasn’t responded!

    Please respond and commit to correcting this so that I can continue to use these scales.

    +1 for this. Other (much)lesser products have done this for a long time. Please add this (And anything else that you can easily calculate from this excellent products data)

    Here is some help ;)

    I agree 100%!  Why does Healthmate allow fat % but not muscle mass %.  All data should be shareable/syncable with the Apple Health app.

    And while you have the hood open on that iOS app please add background refresh of new data so we don't have to start the HealthMate app to get the data into Apple Health.

    Here is how to do it: https://developer.apple.com/documentation/backgroundtasks/refreshing_and_maintaining_your_app_using_background_tasks

    Disappointed to find Body+ / Health Mate doesn't report muscle mass calculation to Apple Health though reports fat % - the lean mass data is created and captured in Health Mate, why not go the next step and update Apple Health with it?
