Connecting with Samsung

| Does STEPPI connect to my Samsung device or Samsung Health data?
STEPPI is working on connecting directly with Samsung soon; in the meantime, you can still participate in STEPPI challenges using a Samsung device or Samsung Health via the Google Fit app.

Instructions to Connect Samsung to Google Fit:

Download Google Fit for FREE from the Google Play store.
Once you have downloaded Google Fit, select Google Fit to track your activity on the STEPPI app, this will track activity data from your mobile phone, (note you must carry your mobile phone with you to enable the activity tracking).
If you would like to try to connect your Samsung Health app, please continue with the following steps. (Please note as this option relies on several apps connectivity before it reaches STEPPI the data may not always reflect accurately).
Download Google Health Sync from Google Play Store and open the Health Sync app.
Follow instructions to set up the Health Sync app.
When selecting your Sync Direction, choose to sync from Samsung Health and select Samsung Health to Google Fit as your Sync Direction.
Select the 'Check Google Fit Connection' button and select the same Google account you have connected in Google Fit and select 'Allow' to give Health Sync access to Google Fit.
Select the 'Check Activity Tracking in Google Fit' and make sure Google Fit Tracking is turned 'Off' then select 'OK.'
Lastly, click to check the data you want Health Sync to share with Google Fit, and turn on 'All permissions' when prompted.

Note: The above instruction to connect to Health Sync is a solution for those seeking an alternative to syncing steps to STEPPI via Google Fit. STEPPI is not responsible for data tracked via Samsung Health Sync, and all Samsung related questions should go to Samsung Health support here:
