Can’t view / synchronize the Pedometer data of Gear2 or Gear Fit

Last Update date : 2017.09.26



Even though I transferred pedometer data from my Gear 2 (or Gear Fit) device to my Galaxy S5, when I check the S Health app on my Galaxy S5, it doesn’t display the pedometer data of Gear 2. It only displays pedometer data of Galaxy S5. Is my device faulty? What should I do?


Your Galaxy S5 is not faulty.

The S Health app of the Galaxy S5 is primarily setup to display pedometer data of the S5 device.
If you would like to display pedometer value of Gear 2 or Gear Fit connected, please change the “target” device to view data from.

Step 1. Tap on “S Health” in Apps.



Step 2. Tap the Pedometer.



Step 3. Tap on the “additional options” icon.




Step 4. Tap “Phone data to view”.




If the Phone data to view option is not present, use the Galaxy Essentials Widget on the home screen, and install the latest version of S Health app and the supporting app “Health Service”.
