This article will outline the steps to setup connections with third party platforms that can sync your wellness data to Today’s Plan. This can include a variety of information such as weight, sleep data, resting HR, HRV, etc. There are a range of platforms which your Today’s Plan account can link into to pull this data, these currently include:
- Garmin Wellness (Garmin Connect)
- MyFitnessPal (Under Armour)
- Apple Watch
Displaying wellness data
Before we show you how to setup the connections, lets quickly recap the different places the wellness data can be displayed on the platform. The first is on the Calendar, in both the mobile app and desktop website. This is controlled using the calendar preferences. The calendar preference toggles are shown in the screenshots below, for more information on the calendar preferences on the desktop website please watch our Masterclass video.
Wellness data can also be displayed on a range of Dashboard panels. Below is an example of this displaying various metrics on the Daily Time Series panel.
If you have a Garmin device or Garmin Scales that record your sleep, weight or other wellness data, that data is stored in your Garmin Connect account. To sync that with your Today’s Plan account you need to establish a separate connection to the regular Garmin Connect link, this is called Garmin Wellness. To do that, go to your Today’s Plan account > Account > Connections > Incoming > Wellness (powered by Garmin) > follow the prompts to login with your Garmin Connect details.
If you use a FitBit device that records your sleep, weight or other wellness data, that is all stored in your FitBit account. To sync that with your Today’s Plan account go to your Today’s Plan account > Account > Connections > Incoming > FitBit > follow the prompts to login with your FitBit account.
If you record your weight, calorie consumption or other wellness data on MyFitnessPal that can be synced into your Today’s Plan account using the Under Armour connection. To do that, go to your Today’s Plan account > Account > Connections > Incoming > Under Armour > follow the prompts to login with your Under Armour account (this is the same login you use for MyFitnessPal).
If you use a Withings scale you can get your weight and body composition data synced into your Today’s Plan account. This is done through the MyFitnessPal connection. Firstly, connect your scales to MyFitnessPal using the instructions found here. Then you will need to setup a connection between MyFitnessPal and Today’s Plan. You can do that using the instructions found above. When you record data on your scales, that will be pushed into MyFitnessPal and then into your Today’s Plan account.
You can link your HRV4Training account to Today’s Plan to sync across HRV and resting HR data. To do this, open the HRV4Training mobile app, press the options icon in the top left > Configure & Export > Settings > select Today’s Plan and follow the prompts to authorise your account. You can manually push data from any past day from the History page in the HRV4Training app, by tapping the measurement bar and selecting “Push to Today’s Plan”.
If you are an Apple Watch user you can use the HealthFit app to push across your sleep, resting HR and HRV data into your Today’s Plan account. To do that, open the HealthFit app > More > Click the upload button in the top right and follow the prompts to enable your Today’s Plan account. See this article for more information on integration with HealthFit.
We are continually looking to add to our list of connected third party systems. Today’s Plan has an API that allows third party services to link in and set up these connections, but it requires development work from the third party. If you have a platform that you would like to link in which is not currently supported we suggest you contact their support team and let them know you would like to be able to sync with Today’s Plan. We are able to provide the necessary documentation to get third party services linked into our API.
