Will I Lose My Previously Synced Data If I Change My Device? 

While you won't lose any data synced for previous dates in your challenge, we recommend making a device switch either at the end of the day (once you've synced all steps from the original device) or early in the morning (before you've started stepping). This avoids any lost steps on the day of the swap, as MoveSpring will pull steps only from the device showing higher totals. MoveSpring will not combine steps from multiple devices synced in the same day.

Where Can I Find Instructions to Connect a Particular Device?

If you'd like specific instructions on connecting a particular device to MoveSpring (such as a Fitbit or Garmin), just navigate to the Getting Started page in the MoveSpring Help Center and select the article about connecting your device.
