Now that you’ve connected Google Fit, learn how to sync steps, distance, and active minutes to Stridekick. We’ll also show you how to make sure you’ve got data available to sync!

The Syncing Process

To sync to Stridekick, you just need to open your Stridekick app and wait to see a ‘Last synced:' message to confirm that you’ve synced.  

We recommend syncing by opening the Stridekick app at least once a day during your challenge. 

All Stridekick challenges have a 72-hour grace period after the challenge ends to give you extra time to sync your final steps, so make sure you sync before the grace period is up!

Where Does Stridekick Get My Data?

Stridekick pulls your activity data from the Google Fit app. Google Fit can track step, minute, and distance data on its own to allow your Android device to work as your fitness tracker, or you can connect another device or app to Google Fit like a Pebble or Xiaomi device.  The activity data from that device or app will need to be present in Google Fit in order to sync to Stridekick. 

If steps, distance, or minutes aren’t showing here, then they can’t sync to Stridekick:

If activity data isn’t showing in Google Fit or syncing correctly to Stridekick, please see these troubleshooting tips for Google Fit users.
