Hi guys,

I am facing with one problem - Samsung Health doesn't add steps when I'm adding my exercise manually.

My Samsung phone got broken, it was fixed within 3 days. I was tracking my steps and exercises via smart watch (non-Samsung). Now I want to add all the workouts and steps to the Samsung health app. This is my primary source  of data, I want to keep everything there.

However, when I add, for example, Running exercise, the system doesn't add any single step. It doesn't make any sense. Also, there is no option to add "steps' as unit. Also-2, Samsung health can't be synchronized with any non-Samsung device.

Is there any solution here?

What watch are you using? You can connect certain fitness apps like fitbit and strava to samsung health and it will sync exercise.

I use health sync however or apperently Samsung does not allow 3rd parties to "add" steps, in other words they are saying... You have to have Galaxy watch, I kind of get Samsung's business theory

However once registered the steps via the watch, I think that can be edited

Health Sync app can synchronise all information from other devices to Samsung...... Except... You guess it..

I use Honor MagicWatch 2 and, of course, they are not compatible with my Galaxy Note.

There is no way to connect Strava so it passes the data TO the Samsung phone. Connection works in one-way direction only: Samsung Health -> Strava.

Yeah, I know about third parties.

So the question is how to add steps manually if for some reasons phone wasn't with you?
