Walker Tracker Help

If this is your first time using Walker Tracker, you can get all your questions answered by watching the tutorial videos below! Learn how to create an account, synchronize a device, or add steps manually. Walker Tracker can synchronize with multiple devices including Fitbit, Apple Watch, Garmin, and more. If you do not have a supported device, you can manually enter your steps throughout the challenge (mobile instructions; browser instructions).

Please note: You must do one or the other, not both. For example, if you have your Fitbit connected you cannot manually track your steps too.

If you are having difficulty registering for or using Walker Tracker, check out the tutorial videos below or contact Walker Tracker Support. Additional questions can be answered at Walker Tracker FAQs!
