TomTom's Sports app now syncs with both Google Fit and Apple Health, allowing users to import data from either service to their account to continuously track activity data and trends, insights, and daily summaries - even without a TomTom Sports wearable.
The update allows anyone to import their daily activity data from Google Fit on Android or Apple Health on iOS, including steps, active time, distance and calories. With the TomTom Sports app, they can set goals and get credit for every step, even if they are not wearing or using a TomTom Sports device. In case they are connected to Google Fit or Apple Health and wear their TomTom Sports device at the same time, activity data will not be duplicated.
"This is a great new development for anyone interested in getting more from tracking their activities," says Corinne Vigreux, co-founder and Managing Director of TomTom Consumer. "We know that people use different apps to track their activities and fitness level. Now they can have all of their data in one place - the TomTom Sports app - and continue to track should they forget their TomTom device at home. Anyone considering buying a fitness tracker can now try out the TomTom Sports app for free first. We're delighted to be making the motivation of the TomTom Sports app available to more people and can't wait to see them get going!"
The TomTom Sports app, co-created with athletes and fitness app users, gets people going by providing motivational messages, activity trends and comparisons, performance stats down to the second, and social sharing functions, presented in an attractive and friendly design, says the company.
To try the app for free on a compatible Android device (4.4 or higher) or iPhone (4 or higher with iOS 8 or higher), download it from the App Store and Google Play store, and set up a profile. The app will prompt to connect with Google Fit and Apple Health, as a one-off request. After that, the TomTom Sports app will import the data on a daily basis.
