What gets measured gets done
Keeping track of your activity helps increase your Health Score and encourages you to do that little bit more.

On MyLife you can also manually enter your data on the App or through the web access in Track > Add Activity manually
Can I manually add steps?
No. Steps cannot be manually added to MyLife.
Why is some of the data from my Tracker/App missing on MyLife?
We’re reliant on the data your tracker/app sends across to us so if this information is not included, it cannot be displayed in our app.
Why is my Tracker/App not syncing with MyLife?
Some external devices/apps transfer data to MyLife via their connection multiple times a day. Other external devices/apps only provide MyLife with one daily transfer of data via their connection.
Because of this, at certain times throughout the day MyLife may appear to have fewer steps than your tracker/app. It is recommended to wait up to 24 hours for syncing of data to occur. MyLife will not update in realtime. Please do not disconnect your tracker as doing so will cause any information that has yet to be sent over to be lost and cannot be retrieved.
