With Google Fit, you can keep all your fitness information tied to your Google Account and share it with the other apps and devices you use to stay healthy.
You can grant apps access to the data, and remove this access at any time in the Google Fit settings. You can also delete the data stored in Google Fit at any time.
*Note: There are many supported third-party apps that can be connected to Google Fit. Please make sure to check both Google Fit and your app's support page for compatibility information.
Connect apps with Google Fit (Android)
You need to connect an app with Google Fit to share the data from that app with Google 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 on-screen instructions to link the app to Google Fit.
Connect apps with Google Fit (iOS)
You can control which apps share data with Fit.
- On your iPhone, open the Google Fit app.
- Tap Profile > Settings
- Tap Manage connected apps.
- To stop sharing info between Fit and another app, tap on the app > Remove access > OK.
If you disconnect an app from Google Fit, it will be disconnected on all devices where that app is installed. Disconnecting an app will not delete any data that the app stored in Google Fit.
