This is how to use fitness devices with the game (Garmin, Fitbit, Samsung Gear, etc)


#1

FitnessRPG is capable of getting your step count from Google Fit and many choose this option. Using Google Fit means you don’t need to have the app open to get your step count.

If you have a smart device that counts your steps (like a Fitbit wristband) then you can use Google Fit by getting an app that can sync with both Google Fit and your device, like a bridge.

(Swatch, LG, Epson, iHealth, Jawbone, Mira, MyKronoz devices are not compatible with any 3rd party apps as far as I know, so give up on those)

  How To Connect 

You need to connect an app with Fit to share the data from that app with Fit. Each app you connect will have a different process to connect it. But generally you can:

Open the app you want to connect, like Strava, Runkeeper, or MyFitnessPal.

Look for the Settings menu.

Look for the setting to connect other apps and devices. Depending on the app, this might be called ‘Link other services,’ ‘apps & devices,’ ‘manage connections,’ or something else.

Follow the onscreen instructions to link the app to Google Fit.
