Fitbit and GoVida

If you own a Fitbit, you can connect your Fitbit account to GoVida to earn points from your steps and activities. To do this, you must own a Fitbit device and have the Fitbit and GoVida apps downloaded on your device.

In order to connect your Fitbit account to GoVida, follow the steps outlined below:

  • Open the “Trackers” section of the GoVida App (you can find it in the “Profile” section in the top right of the screen)
  • Click the link icon adjacent to the Fitbit icon (Fig 1) followed by “Continue
  • Enter email and password for your Fitbit account (Fig 2) then press “Login
  • Allow GoVida access to Fitbit account data (Fig 3) by pressing “Allow

Suggested Configuration for steps tracking with Fitbit:

We recommend the below suggested configuration for Fitbit steps tracking whereby you can still track your steps through your phone using Apple Health (iOS) or Google Fit (Android). In these cases we recommend that you do not connect your Fitbit data to Apple Health or Google Fit as this may impact your total steps output due to a duplication of data.

iOS

Android

To sync your Fitbit steps data to GoVida – open your Fitbit app and sync the data from your wearable to your Fitbit account. Once you’ve done this, open GoVida and refresh the your activity data.

GoVida will continue to take your phone steps data from Google Fit and Apple Health (if you have it configured correctly) allowing you to track steps while not using your Fitbit.

In periods where you are using both your phone and Fitbit, GoVida aggregates the data between the two sources to give a more accurate steps count.
