How to track your steps using an iPhone

To access your “Steps” information, just tap the “Health” application icon on your home screen. By default, the Dashboard will appear with the “Steps”, “Walking + Running Distance”, and “Flights Climbed” cards. You can tap the “Day”, “Week”, “Month”, and “Year” cards to see how many steps you’ve taken, how far you’ve walked and run, and how many flights of stairs you’ve climbed, complete with averages. It’s easy to see how active you’ve been and how that’s changed over time, complete with your most active and least active days.

How to track your steps using an Android Phone

Google Fit is Google’s competitor to Apple Health and is included on some new Android phones. If you have an older phone you can install it from the Google Play Store.

To get started, Install Google Fit from Google Play if it’s not already installed. Then launch the “Fit” app on your Android phone. You’ll have to set up Google Fit, including giving it access to the sensors it needs to monitor your step count. After you have done so, open the Google Fit app and swipe around to see how many steps you’ve taken and other fitness details, such as an estimate of the number of calories you’ve burned. This information is tied to your Google account, so you can also access it at Google Fit on the web.
