Google Fit Troubleshooting
When troubleshooting Google Fit, it's important to recognize that there are many variables to consider. If someone is using a third-party app or Activity Tracker to connect to Google Fit and then connect to Walkingspree, the settings are very important to reduce error. It's also important to recognize that Walkingspree has no control over third-party apps or Activity Trackers and they frequently update their apps which can then cause issues in the data flow to Google Fit and subsequently to Walkingspree.
