Why is the active calories time series request so much slower to return than all the others?

Thank you for reporting the issue. I have forwarded this issue to the appropriate Fitbit engineering team. While we will address the issue, this is not a common use case and other issues currently have much higher prioritization.

Could you please provide the exact endpoint you are calling?

activities/activityCalories from https://wiki.fitbit.com/display/API/API-Get-Time-Series

 

All the other end points, such as activities/calories return much faster. Note: this is especially evident when the account has more than a year of history, and the period is set to max. I have also noticed that if it times out (taking longer than 30 seconds), and then I call it again immediately, the second call responds somewhat faster (for instance, maybe 15-20 seconds).

Is anyone ever going to look into this bug? It seems to be getting worse and worse.

Yea, I just downloaded Sync Solver. All of my Fitbit data sync with Health app, minus my active calories. It's frustrating!
