Amazing! Compatible with 3 smart watches!

A few months ago, I emailed Jose and asked if there was anyway he could add Garmin to the app. I had been using a Fitbit and able to compete with friends through the Fitbit app, but had recently purchased a Garmin, and was sad we couldn't keep up our weekly challenges. I was amazed when he emailed me back and said it had been done! I am super excited to be able to compete with friends who have apple watches, Fitbit and Garmin!

Very user friendly and clean!

This is a GREAT app for any group of friends/coworkers that want to see keep track of who takes the most steps! I’ve only used it for a couple of days and so far, everything seems super simple and clean. I just hope that this app can keep our steps record for more than a month. I also hope that one day, the developers can allow for Fitbit syncing!

We are happy to hear that you are enjoying the app! We would love to be able to synchronize steps from Fitbit, but this is sadly a limitation from Fitbit and there is nothing that we can do to change this.

We noted the idea of storing more than one months of steps data. Stay tuned for future updates this year that will be adding improvements to the app.

Connecting to friends.

At first we had some problems connecting my garmin but I emailed the ap developer and they fixed it to work! Great customer service and now my friends and I can hold each other accountable. One gas Apple, I have a garmin and the other has a Fitbit.
