Motion Connected App

With the newest version of the Motion Connected app (Version 4.0.0 or higher) the MC Link app is no longer needed to sync your data from Google Fit. For Apple Health (iPhone) users please click here.

To sync activity data from Google Fit (first needs to be downloaded to your phone) to Motion Connected, download and install Motion Connected version 4.0.0 from the Google Play store or simply update the version you currently have.  

After the Motion Connected version 4.0.0 (or higher) and Google Fit apps have been downloaded, follow the directions below to link to Google Fit. 

  1. Open the Motion Connected app and sign in if prompted.
  2. Tap the three dots at the bottom to access the menu.
  3. Select Settings.
  4. Sign into your Google Account then Toggle on the "Enable Link" 
    1. You will be asked to approve any necessary permissions and choose the google account to use for accessing your Google Fit data.
  5. Open your Motion Connected app regularly (we recommend at least once per week). With the Google Fit connection enabled, your data will sync to your Motion Connected account every time you open the Motion Connected app.  You can also manually sync data (within the last 30 days) by tapping the Sync button on the settings page of the app. If the app is running in the background, it will attempt to sync new data every 15 minutes. Data will not sync if the app is closed completely.
