Suggested Configuration for steps tracking with Fitbit:

We recommend the below suggested configuration for Fitbit steps tracking whereby you can still track your steps through your phone using Apple Health (iOS) or Google Fit (Android). In these cases we recommend that you do not connect your Fitbit data to Apple Health or Google Fit as this may impact your total steps output due to a duplication of data.
