Google Fit + Runkeeper (Android)

Google Fit allows you to keep all your Health data in one place. Here's how you can sync your accounts:

Syncing Google Fit + Runkeeper 

  1. Download the Google Fit app from the Google Play Store and create an account.
  2. Open the Runkeeper app and tap on the hamburger menu (the three horizontal lines) in the top left corner of your screen and select Settings.
  3. Scroll down and tap on Apps, Services, and Devices.
  4. Tap on Google Fit and select your preferred account email address.
  5. Runkeeper and Google Fit are connected!


What Information Syncs?

  • Google Fit tracks your steps stores them in their app.
  • Runkeeper will automatically send over any GPS tracked activities to your account.*
  • On days you have a GPS-tracked Runkeeper activity you will see a Runkeeper icon in Google Fit. You can then click that activity to get more activity details."
  • If you update your weight in Runkeeper, it will automatically update to Google Fit. 

*Important Notes:

  • Although we send all GPS data to Google Fit, they currently only display Running, Walking, and Cycling activity types.
  • This integration syncs one way to Google Fit: Google Fit does not sync to Runkeeper.
  • Google Fit will do its best to assign a step value to any of your Runkeeper activities. This is not a Runkeeper calculation and will not be displayed in the Runkeeper app.
  • Runkeeper activities will only sync to Google Fit after you have connected the two apps. At this time, historic data will not sync.
  • Stopwatch and manually-entered activities will not sync to Google Fit.
