Sync wellness data from a Samsung device

Carb Manager is working with Samsung to enable direct integration with the Samsung Health app, but until that process is complete, Premium users can connect through Google Fit using a third-party app called Health Sync.

Connect Samsung data to Carb Manager

If you use Carb Manager on an Android device, complete these steps to share wellness data from your Samsung product with Carb Manager through Google Fit.

Data that is shared

Carb Manager imports the following information from Health Sync and Google Fit.

  • steps
  • activity minutes
  • calories/kilojoules burned
  • weight

Connect Health Sync and Google Fit to Carb Manager

  1. Download the Health Sync, Google Fit, and Samsung Health apps from Google Play.
  2. Configure Health Sync to sync from Samsung Health to Google Fit. For details, see the instructions provided by Health Sync.
  3. Disable direct activity tracking in Google Fit to ensure that Google Fit only syncs your Samsung data. For details, see the instructions provided by Google Fit.
  4. Open Carb Manager on your computer or mobile device.
  5. Go to Settings icon Settings
  6. In My Settings, select  App Settings.
  7. Optional: If you plan to consistently log exercise, Carb Manager can automatically deduct energy (calories or kilojoules) and macros from your daily totals based on the energy burned from active exercise. In the Macros Settings section, turn on Deduct Calories/Kilojoules When I Exercise and, optionally, Deduct Macros When I Exercise. For details, see Deduct energy (calories or kilojoules) and macros when you log exercise.
  8. Go to the Fitness Device Links section and select Google Fit
  9. Follow the on-screen instructions to sign in to your Google Fit account and to grant Carb Manager access to your wellness data.

Now, when you view a day in Carb Manager daily log, Carb Manager imports wellness data from your Samsung product (through Google Fit and Health Sync) if data is present. For details, see View wellness data from a fitness device or app.

Tip: If you have problems connecting Carb Manager to your Samsung product, see Troubleshoot issues from a fitness device or app.
