Activity Tracking Options

Link your Fitbit or Garmin account to Motion Connected or use the Apple Health app on iPhones or the Google Fit app on Android phones to pull data from some of your favorite devices including Apple Watch, Misfit, Withings, Polar and more.

Compatible Devices

*Please note: this is not an exhaustive list, and device compatibility with Apple Health or Google Fit may change. Before purchasing a device, we recommend checking the manufacturer’s site to verify Google Fit or Apple Health compatibility. 

Linking via Apple Health or Google Fit
Linking a device other than a Fitbit or Garmin will require the Apple Health or Google Fit app. Many device apps such as Polar Flow and Withings Health Mate can be configured to share step data with either of these apps. If your device app syncs activity data with Apple Health or Google Fit, you can use it to track activity for Motion Connected (even if it's not a device listed above*). 

*Please refer to your device manufacturer for information on compatibility with Apple Health or Google Fit. Android users may also view apps that work with Google Fit on the Google Play Store .
