Samsung Health and Google Fit were not directly integrated, which means you couldn’t sync fitness data between them natively. However, you can use third-party apps and services to bridge the gap and transfer your fitness data from Samsung Health to Google Fit. Here’s a general guide on how to do it:
Method 1: Using a Third-Party App
- Download a Third-Party App: There are several third-party apps available on the Google Play Store that can help you transfer your fitness data from Samsung Health to Google Fit. An example of such an app is “Health Sync.” Install and open the app.
- Grant Permissions: Follow the on-screen instructions to grant necessary permissions to access your fitness data from Samsung Health and Google Fit.
- Select Data to Transfer: In the app, you’ll have options to choose which data you want to sync. Typically, you can select activities like steps, workouts, heart rate, and more.
- Configure Sync Frequency: You can set how frequently you want the app to sync data between Samsung Health and Google Fit.
- Start Syncing: Once you’ve configured your preferences, initiate the syncing process. The app will transfer data from Samsung Health to Google Fit based on your chosen settings.
- Check Google Fit: After syncing, open the Google Fit app to verify that your fitness data from Samsung Health has been transferred successfully.
Method 2: Use Google Fit on a Samsung Device
If you’re using a Samsung device with Google Fit pre-installed, you can set up Google Fit to track your fitness data alongside Samsung Health. Here’s how:
- Open Google Fit: If Google Fit isn’t already on your Samsung device, you can download it from the Google Play Store.
- Log In: Sign in to your Google account or create one if you don’t have one.
- Set Goals: Follow the setup process in Google Fit, which may include setting fitness goals and preferences.
- Grant Permissions: When prompted, grant Google Fit permission to access your fitness data.
- Allow Sync: Google Fit should automatically sync with Samsung Health if it detects it on your device. If not, go to Google Fit settings, and under “Manage connected apps,” look for Samsung Health and connect it.
- Monitor Data: Google Fit should now start tracking and displaying your fitness data alongside Samsung Health.
