Connecting Samsung Health to Stridekick with Health Sync
If you’ve already read our guide for Samsung Health users and have decided you’d like to try to connect your Samsung Health data to Stridekick using the Health Sync app, you’re in the right place!
Stridekick cannot guarantee that Health Sync will accurately and reliably sync steps from Samsung Health to Google Fit. As your data is being transferred between a few different apps, [Samsung Health > Health Sync > Google Fit > Stridekick] it is possible that some data will get lost along the way. We can only sync the steps, distance, and active minutes data that are showing in the Google Fit app on your phone.
Please note: The Health Sync app is not free. After a one-week trial, Health Sync requires a one-time purchase of $2.99 (current pricing may differ).

- Download Health Sync from the Google Play Store and open the Health Sync app
- Follow the prompts to set up Health Sync
- When choosing your Sync Direction, select to sync from Samsung Health and then select Samsung Health to Google Fit as your Sync Direction

Health Sync recently shared that after June 30, 2020, steps data can't be synced into Samsung Health. This does not appear to impact the ability for Health Sync to pull steps from Samsung Health into Google Fit as shown above.
