Sync your fitbit one/force/flex/zip from Ubuntu with galileo

Thanks to Benoit Allard, there is now a way to sync the newer fitbit devices from within Ubuntu!  I’ve packaged it up and put it in my PPA, so now it’s easier than ever to sync your Fitbit.  To install (make sure the USB dongle is plugged in):


The sync should now happen in the background, and will sync automatically every 15 minutes.

    Thank you for this! I had no idea that people were still working on Fitbit sync for Linux.

    Will I be able to make it work with Galileo and only Galileo?
    I don’t have a windows/linux box available or a compatible phone.

    I have Galileo running (thanks), but it reports:
    Skipped because recently synchronised
    Or if I run it with the –force:
    Synchronisation failed: no tracker

    Hi again,
    Benoît Allard has confirmed I need to sync first using the win/mac client, or wait for Galileo v0.5 as it should be able to also take care of the pairing.
