Different connections have different synchronisation times. If the connection is GoogleFit – it may take up to 24 hours to sync the data; If the connection is Samsung health – you need to open Samsung health first to sync the data. For other connections, you can try disconnecting and reconnecting to the wearable.
Sometimes the data is not fully loaded (e.g. in the case of leaderboards) due to the size of the challenge not being consistent with the data model of a specific connection. Please contact us for further support!
Strava does not provide steps as a data source. You can use Fitbit App to count steps. Fitbit App uses the accelerometer in your mobile to count steps. So you don’t need a wearable/band to count your steps. Just carry your mobile with you.
Fitward tries to keep data transmission as real-time as possible. However, sometimes server connections work slower than expected. It is therefore wise to wait 24 hours before complaining to your support department.
In short, activity types are equivalent to timed workouts you do in a day and daily summaries are static data of your daily movement. For example, an hour’s recorded walking session will be an activity. And, this walking activity + walking from your kitchen to your living room or any other movement on a day will count in your daily summaries.
Activities are part of your daily overviews. For example, while walking, running, crossfit or rowing. Daily summaries, however, are the static data of your total movement during the day.

The workout offered by different wearables often does not match another wearable. Crossfit, for example, can be tracked with Google-Fit, but not with Fitbit. For this reason, Fitward combines different workouts into one. So, indoor cycling, outdoor cycling, mountain biking will count as cycling workout. Hiking workout counts as ‘running’ in the Fitward app.
