Use Flic to track water intake in iOS Health app - possible?



  • Hi all,

    new poster, long time reader :-)

    I'm trying to find a way to track water intake in the iOS Health app through a Flic click but so far haven't been successful. I have tried a few ideas:

    • IFTTT
    • Shortcuts shortcut
    • Launch Pro
    • Webhooks
    • Searching these forums
    • Searching the web
    • Considered building my own app (which with my coding skills is preposterous)

    but to no avail. Also, I have yet to find an iOS app that can listen for an incoming signal from e.g. an IFTTT Webhook and run in-app to send to Health.

    I cannot imagine being the first to think of this so I hope someone inhere has a solution :-)

    Anyone?

  • Hi @isolating - worked, but as you mention, only on unlocked iPhones.

    I'll look into the workflow a bit and see, if I can somehow store the requests with a timestamp, at then batch execute them whenever I unlock my phone :-)

    Thanks so far,
    Michael

    It's tricky but this may do what you want. It'll work using flic connected to your iPhone but will have issues if the phone is locked. This is an apple issue.

    1. Create a Shortcut to add data to your health app (e.g. Nutrition data add 100ml on today's date) and give it a name e.g. Water100
    2. On the flic app for iphone set the action to be Safari (open a website in Safari) and give it the URL of:
      shortcuts://run-shortcut?name=Water100
      The shortcut will run every time the flic is pressed.
      Hope that helps,
