Option 1: Connect through Samsung Health Platform
MoveSpring offers a direct connection to Samsung Health through the Samsung Health Platform app. Requirements to download Health Platform are:

Must be on Android 8.0 or higher
If you meet these requirements, click here to learn how to set up this connection.
If you do not meet these requirements, not to worry! You can still participate in MoveSpring challenges if you use a Samsung device or Samsung Health. Select from these options below to participate:
Option 2: Google Fit
You can download Google Fit for free from the Google Play store and set Google Fit as your device in MoveSpring. Google Fit will allow you to use your phone as a pedometer and will track steps, distance, and minutes totals for you. Once you've downloaded Google Fit and created an account there, you can connect Google Fit to MoveSpring.
Option 3: Manual Activity Entry
If your challenge admins have manual activity entry enabled for your challenge, you'll be able to add activities directly into your MoveSpring account. Manual activity entry allows you to manually enter your steps from Samsung Health into MoveSpring up to 7 days back.
Option 4: Send Samsung Health Data to Google Fit using Health Sync
Some of our users have reported success with the third party app Health Sync which sends data from Samsung Health to Google Fit. With this option you will download Health Sync, link it to your existing Google Fit account, then connect the Google Fit app as your device in MoveSpring.
We cannot guarantee that Health Sync will accurately and reliably sync your Samsung Health data to Google Fit. It’s also important to note that the Health Sync app is not free. After a free one-week trial, Health Sync requires a one-time purchase of $2.99 (current pricing may differ). If you’d like to learn more about this option, please click here to learn more about connecting to MoveSpring using the Health Sync application.
Option 5: Send Samsung Health Data to Withings Health Mate
The Withings Health Mate app offers the option to sync your Samsung Health totals into their app. Once totals are synced to Withings Health Mate, you can connect MoveSpring to your Withings account to pull in your totals. Learn more about setting up this option here.
MoveSpring cannot guarantee that the connection from Samsung Health to Withings Health Mate will reliably sync. We can only sync the steps, distance, and active minutes data that are showing in the Withings account you’ve connected to MoveSpring.
