However, if you change the model from Android to iPhone, or from iPhone to Android, your step count data will be measured and saved by the function of your smartphone, and you will not be able to carry over your past step count data.
In that case, please switch the measurement method to “other pedometer” and manually enter the number of steps from My Page.
*Once you switch the measurement method to “Other Pedometers”, you cannot switch back to “Health Diary App”.
If you cannot get the number of steps data from the Android version of “Health Diary” , please check if “Google Fit” is installed.
