How does syncing work?

Stridekick grabs your data automatically after you sync your device, but we can't pull data directly from your device so you have to sync it to your device’s app first!

To sync, open up your device app on your phone and make sure your steps populate there. We recommend syncing several times a day to ensure accurate steps counts for each challenge [Apple health app users must open their app everyday to sync]. There may be a slight delay, up to 10 minutes, for your data to reach Stridekick*.

There is a 72-hour grace period that allows players to sync after each day in a challenge.
This challenge is scored around team step averages. The team with the highest step average at the end of the challenge wins so give it your all and watch your team’s step average climb! View your entire team’s standings on the leaderboard through “stats” or “view challenge". To view your specific team’s leaderboard click on your team avatar.


*If you do not see your activity after several sync attempts or you forgot to sync for over 72 hours, reach out to us for assistance by using the help icon on the bottom right of the screen or at stridekick.team@stridekick.mail.intercom.io
