Tips to Fix Zepp & Google Fit Sync Issues
One thing to remember here is that Google Fit doesn’t do any importing. Zepp and other third-party apps (like Google Fit) can only connect to Google Fit with Google’s instructions; the apps are responsible for establishing the connection and pulling and pushing data correctly.
Zepp might be having some issues if you are experiencing sync problems. It is something the Zepp developers should fix. However, here are some troubleshooting tips you can try:
Check Google Fit’s Data Permission
As discussed earlier, enabling Manage Fit Data Permissions is essential to allow Zepp’s activity data to sync with Google Fit. Ensure that you have enabled this option to avoid sync issues.
- Open the Google Fit app > Go to “Profile” > Tap the “Settings” icon > Tap “Manage Fit Data Permissions” > Enable Store vitals data and Store cycle tracking data.
Disconnect & Re-sync
Another solution is to try disconnecting Google Fit from the Zepp app and resynchronizing it again. You can try unauthorizing it from the Zepp app and then reauthorizing it by following the same process described above.
Note: If it doesn’t work, uninstall both apps and start syncing again.
Check for App Updates
In many cases, syncing issues can cause due to software errors. It is always a good idea to stay on top of the latest updates since they contain fixes for such problems. Not only do updates alert you to new features, but they also fix errors. So, check if your Zepp and Google Fit app have any pending updates.
Restart Your Phone
A simple restart can be a lifesaver for many. When you restart, your phone clears out any software errors (if exist) that might be causing Zepp & Google Fit to not sync. I recommend initiating a soft restart once updating your apps to the latest version. And check if the issue persists.
