You can connect Carb Manager to your Apple Health account and share wellness data between the two apps. Carb Manager imports exercise and health data from Apple Health, including data from devices that integrate with Apple Health such as Apple Watch. Carb Manager also exports nutrition information to Apple Health.

Data that is shared

Carb Manager imports the following information from Apple Health.

  • steps
  • minutes exercised, including activities equivalent to a brisk walk or greater
  • calories/kilojoules burned from physical activities, not calories burned while at rest
  • weight
  • blood glucose

For more information see Apple's documentation:

step count
exercise time
active energy burned
weight
blood glucose

Carb Manager exports the following information, once per day,

  • macronutrients, micronutrients, vitamins, and minerals from the foods you've logged.
  • health measurements, like cholesterol, blood pressure
Note: Apple Health displays only total carbs data, even if your carb tracking settings in Carb Manager are set to net carbs or adjusted net carbs
