We are continuing to monitor Samsung Health’s timeline to send step data to Health Connect
As previously shared, our technical team plans to add Google's Health Connect app as a new device option in Stridekick. This will allow Samsung Health users to pull their Samsung Health data in to Stridekick.
We are currently waiting for Samsung Health to send step data to Health Connect so we can proceed with building out this integration. Samsung has communicated that this should occur by the end of February 2023. Once Samsung Health begins to send step data into Health Connect, we will share another update.
We appreciate your continued patience and recommend checking out the alternatives below to participate in Stridekick challenges in the meantime.
While we work to build a new Samsung Health integration with Health Connect, you can still participate in Stridekick challenges by using one of the following options below:
Option 1: Track Your Activity Data with Google Fit
You can download Google Fit for free from the Google Play store and set Google Fit as your device in Stridekick. Google Fit will allow you to use your phone as a pedometer and will track steps, distance, and minutes totals for you. Once you've downloaded Google Fit and created an account there, you can connect Google Fit to Stridekick.
For Galaxy Watch4 and Watch5 series users:
Option 2: Send Samsung Health Data to Google Fit using Health Sync
Some of our users have reported success with the third party app Health Sync which sends data from Samsung Health to Google Fit. With this option you will download Health Sync, link it to your existing Google Fit account, then connect the Google Fit app as your device in Stridekick.
We cannot guarantee that Health Sync will accurately and reliably sync your Samsung Health data to Google Fit. It’s also important to note that 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). If you’d like to learn more about this option, please click here to learn more about connecting to Stridekick using the Health Sync application.
Option 3: Add your data manually with manual activity entry
Manual activity entry allows you to manually enter your steps from Samsung Health into Stridekick up to 7 days back. Learn more here.
