Activity trackers which work with Apple Health (such as Apple Watch) can be connected with the 10,000 Steps Mobile App to sync steps to a 10,000 Steps account. Steps imported from Apple Health will be automatically synced from the day of connection. Any retrospective steps can be entered manually. Apple Health may import steps tracked by both the internal pedometer sensor on the iPhone in addition to a connected device. The addition of steps tracked by the iPhone can be turned off in iOS Settings >Privacy > Motion and Fitness.

We recommend having only one primary device as the source of steps connected to your 10,000 Steps account, such as Apple Watch using the 10,000 Steps mobile app OR Garmin, Fitbit or Google Fit using the 10,000 Steps website. Having multiple connections will contribute to conflicting step records. We recommend disconnecting any previously established connections with Fitbit,  Garmin or Google Fit prior to attempting to connect with Apple Health. As Apple Health is a third party app, our ability to troubleshoot and replicate issues is limited.

We recommend removing any previous versions of the 10,000 Steps mobile app prior to the installation of the latest version 4.8.4.
