Sync your steps using our apps or smart devices

Sync Your Steps

Step challenge users can sync their steps from Fitbit, Garmin, Apple Health, Google Fit and more.

Step Count Syncing

Our apps and website allow your users to connect their Fitbit, Garmin, iPhone, or Android Phone up to the system so that we can automatically pull in their step counts. This is great for users who are busy and might not always remember to log in each day and update their step totals. Now they can simply connect to a device in the settings and let Big Team Challenge take care of the rest!

Participants can also sync their step counts from the built-in iPhone pedometer, Google Health Connect for Android and Samsung, Fitbit and Garmin.

How does Fitbit syncing work?

Your Fitbit device does not sync directly with Big Team Challenge. Instead, your activity is first synced to Fitbit then sent to Big Team Challenge. The process is as follows:

  1. Your activity is tracked by your physical Fitbit device.
  2. You sync your Fitbit device to Fitbit either via your phone's bluetooth connection or by connecting your Fitbit device to your computer.
  3. Fitbit sends Big Team Challenge a notification about your new activity.
  4. Big Team Challenge processes this activity and updates your step count accordingly.

When can I add steps?

You can add or sync your steps (or miles or kilometers) whenever and as often as you like during the challenge. If you miss a day or two you can specify the date(s) on which they were walked when you manually add your distance(s).
