Read and write access

To read and write to restricted data types, you first need to verify your app through Google's OAuth Application Verification process. Learn more

If your app isn't verified, when it requests access to a sensitive OAuth scope certain request quotas will be applied and users may see warnings. The quotas are there to allow you to conduct testing. Learn more

Once your app is verified, it can read restricted data types. To write to restricted data types, there's a second application process.

Because health data is potentially sensitive, Google Fit restricts write access for the data types in HealthDataTypes to only certain developers. Apps need user permission to read and write data of a restricted type. Any application can read fitness data of a restricted data type, but only Google-approved applications can write data of this type.
