In order to receive data, make sure that no other app is syncing and removing the data from your device, so make sure that the official app is not running. Kill the app (this might be not possible as every notification might start it up again) or uninstall it.

Synchronisation of steps and sleep

To synchronize/fetch steps and sleep data from the watch/band to Gadgetbridge, you can press the Sync icon on the Device card in the Control panel. (Some devices push this data to Gadgetbridge automatically (like Pebble) so the Sync icon is not present).

Detailed view just for the past night. You can adjust the view interval as Noon to noon or Past 24 hours. The circular chart shows light/deep sleep break down. Do note, that for most watches, the deep sleep detection is not reliable. But, what you mostly care about is heart rate, often this can be enabled as Continuous HR measurement or Improve sleep detection by using HR in settings. Minimum/maximum and average heart rate is displayed in the heart icon. Also, movement intensity (the blue lines on Y axis) is displayed as total for the night in the intensity icon.

PAI (Personal Activity Intelligence) consists of a score computed by some sports watches and bands, based on the last 7 days of activity. The expected goal is to maintain a score of 100 PAI or higher. PAI points are earned by elevating the heart rate. The PAI screen provides with an overview of the daily PAI score, as computed by the watch.
