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!

Would be great if it worked

I got this app to help motivate my family to stay active daily. Keep in mind, some family members are more comfortable with tech than others. It’s hard to keep the less tech-savvy ones interested when simple things don’t work as they should.
The first day I could see the step count for 2 added friends, but not for the 4th person. I figured it was because they didn’t have Apple Health set up and the other 2 did.

Two days after convincing everyone to get on Social Steps, multiple texts and FaceTime calls explaining how to set up and sync Apple Health, only my steps are visible on the Social Steps app. We all see zeros for the step count for every friend that I’ve added, This is across four separate iPhone 12s in 2 states. I sent screenshots to the Social Steps team hoping it’s an easy fix.

It is rather disheartening though, given the difficulty we’ve faced trying to use a seemingly simple app whose primary feature isn’t working. At this point, it’s easier for us to just text each other daily step counts since we can all see our steps in Apple Health.

Simple To Use

Simple, easy to use! Nice to connect with friends with FitBit. I wish I could also connect to my fiancé who has Samsung watch, but we haven’t been able to find an app that does both Apple Watch and Samsung. No complaints and would recommend if you’re trying to connect with friends & family while being active!
