Pairing your Apple Watch or iPhone with Walker Tracker
Yep! It's true. You can use your gorgeous Apple smart watch or even your iPhone itself as your step tracking device and have those steps sync automatically with your Walker Tracker account.
In either case, you will be pairing the Apple Health app that runs on your iPhone with Walker Tracker. The first step to making sure this pairing is a success is to verify which tracking device has priority in the Apple Health app. Immediately below are the instructions for verifying that in Apple Health.
Prioritize data sources
Here's how to choose the sources that Health uses first:
- Open Health, then tap the Health Data tab.
- Tap a category, like Activity.
- Tap a data type, like Steps.
- Tap Data Sources & Access, then tap Edit.
- Touch and hold next to a data source, then drag it up or down in the list.
- To turn off a data source so that it doesn't contribute any more data for that category, tap the checkmark next to the source.
- When you're finished, tap Done.
If multiple sources contribute the same data type, then the data source at the top will take priority over other sources. Any new apps or devices that you add go to the top of the list automatically, above your iPhone or iPod touch.
Once you are sure the proper device has priority in the Apple Health app you can then activate it in Walker Tracker.
