In this article, we explain how to reflect the step count in the Stellar Walk Android app by linking it with the “Health Connect” app. Stellar Walk uses the standard motion sensor of Android devices to measure steps, but this article is for those who have trouble with this feature.
About Health Connect
Health Connect has the functionality to aggregate health data from other healthcare apps like
Fitbit, and serve as a bridge to transfer this data to other apps. The advantage here is that it acts as a mediator, allowing users to choose the data they want to use in other apps.
