Sync my Samsung Watch to Pacer through Samsung Health
After syncing Pacer with Samsung Health, you can pull your Samsung Watch activity data to Pacer through Samsung Health. Please go to your Samsung Health app to check supported watches and activity trackers.
Note that on a device that is not Samsung branded, you may install Samsung Health but its performance can be less stable than on a Samsung device.
If you are having syncing issues, follow these steps:
1. Ensure you have the most updated Pacer Android version from the App Store.
2. Turn off/on your smartphone, launch Pacer, and see if that corrected the issue.
3. In the Me -> Settings menu, deactivate the Pacer/Samsung Health connection and re-sync.
4. If the above steps do not work, use the Feedback portal in the Me -> Settings menu to directly contact Pacer Support.
