Additionally, some phones have a native pedometer (motion sensor) built in, which you can use to import steps into your MapMy account. The following phones have this capability:
- iPhone 5S and newer
- Android: Samsung S5 and newer
- HTC One M8 and newer
To enable step tracking, visit the app settings or sidebar and select "Apps & Devices" from the menu. You'll be able to connect to your device's built-in pedometer here, if available.
Please note that some newer phone models may not yet be compatible with the app for step tracking.
Additionally, when recording a workout, the app will calculate an equivalent in "steps," that is based on the equation 2,000 steps = 1 mile. You can locate step data for the workout on our website. To view, log in to www.mapmyfitness.com > Training > Workouts. From the calendar, locate the workout of interest and click on it > select "View." Steps should be located next to the Distance field, as shown below.
