Linking Google Fit and the OurPath app

If you would like to use Google Fit to count your steps or track your weight, this data can also be linked to the OurPath app.  

Note: If you're on the tech-programme, your account is set to use the steps coming from your activity tracker. To change this, your mentor will first need to update the settings on your account. 

To make sure Google Fit is linked to the OurPath app, please follow these steps: 

  • Go to 'Settings' in the OurPath app
  • Scroll down to the 'Track' heading 
  • Select 'Allow Google Fit permissions' 
  • Choose the correct Google account if necessary

You will be prompted to allow the OurPath app to access Google Fit's data: 

  • Select 'Allow'

Your account will then be linked to Google Fit and your step counts and weight readings will automatically be transmitted and appear under the 'Track' section of the OurPath app. 

If the section 'Allow Google Fit permissions' is greyed out, this indicates that the OurPath app and Google Fit are already connected.  

Unlinking Google Fit from the OurPath app

If you prefer to manually add your step count and weight readings into the OurPath app, you can also make sure that Google Fit does not transmit any information to the OurPath app: 

  • Go to your Google Fit account
  • Select 'Profile'
  • Select the 'Settings' wheel icon on the top right
  • Select 'Manage connected apps'
  • Select 'OurPath' 
  • Select 'Disconnect'
