Does the shaking the phone trick still work for easy.
At the end of October, Niantic introduced the Adventure Sync feature for Pokemon GO. Through integration with fitness apps Google Fit and Apple Health, players will now be able to track their steps while the game is offline! Through this integration, you can hatch Eggs, earn Buddy candy, and earn rewards. Here's what you need to know about how to get the most out of this feature.
The new gameplay system will sync in the background with iOS HealthKit and Android Google Fit, and give players access to a weekly summary that highlights distance traveled on foot and other stats.
I used Heath Sync to allow Google fit receive data from my Garmin connect. It seems to work but I noticed that steps reported by Google fit, after having synchronised, are systematically higher than what reported on Connect. As an example, now Connect says almost 9.000 steps (7.1 km), while Google fit reports almost 13.660 (9.6 km). I do not know how the sync combines steps coming from Connect.
In the S8 the integration between adventure sync and Samsung health was seamless. Not an issue all the steps Health recorded were counted in Pokemon Go. Now with the 10 there is no connection. And worse no steps are being recorded even when PoGo is open. I went into permissions of Health and under apps PoGo is not there to authorize. Note: on.
I feel the problem is with the Google Fit App. It doesnt' tract steps outside of what it appears to consider a 'workout'. The discrepency between it, Samsung Health App and my watch is huge. From what I can see I need this app as it's the only one that will work with Adventure Sync. I've allowed all permissions, use both POGO and Fit on phone data and not wifi, don't have battery saver on etc.
Niantic today announced a new feature for Pokemon GO called “Adventure Sync” — a lofty name for a very simple feature: step tracking. Specifically, Adventure Sync will record your walking.
Go. Hi, Settings. My Profile. Google Fit on Android Wear will sync with the data from your phone within 30 hours, although the company is working to improve this. Health and Wellness. See All.
