The rewards of physical activity? Huge. Not only can it lead to up to 20% more weight loss when combined with eating better, but it may also boost self-esteem and mood, help you manage stress, reduce the risk of depression, and even lead to better sleep.

Get the WW app and kick start your weight loss journey

The best way to track your earned activity Points is to sync your activity tracker. The WW app is compatible with; Apple Health, Google Fit, Google Health, Amazon Halo, Withings (Weight), FitBit and Garmin.

If your device isn’t connected—or if you’re not sure if it’s properly synced—follow the simple steps below. Don’t panic if you don’t see your data right away! It can occasionally take up to two hours to retrieve data from your device or app.

How to connect your activity tracker

Follow these steps to easily and quickly connect your device:

  1. Open the WW app.
  2. Tap the person icon in the top right corner.
  3. Tap the gear icon in the top right corner.
  4. Tap “Devices.”
  5. Tap which device your would like to connect.
  6. Tap “Connect to Apple Health," then tap "Turn All Categories On" to sync.

Now that your device is connected, you can start earning your activity Points. Remember: There’s no right or wrong way to get active. WW encourages you to move any way you like, at your own pace. Walk, swim, skateboard, clean the house—it all counts!

Sync your device for easy sleep tracking

Just like recording your weight and food, tracking your sleep can be a powerful wellness tool. Knowing how much sleep you get and when you’re getting it can show you what’s working—and what’s not—giving you the power to make healthy changes that improve your shut-eye.

Now, WW is making it even easier to track your sleep. You'll be able to sync sleep data from your wearable device or app with the WW app to automatically track your sleep.

Already have your device set up to sync your activity data with the WW app? Great! It will automatically start syncing your sleep data.
