We are very excited to announce a brand new addition to the MyFitnessPal experience!
Using our new Wear OS companion app, users will now be able to view their current daily nutritional intake, add water, and quick add calories directly from their Watch.
*This initial version is only available in English (your personal device will need to be set to English) and is featured in the Google Play Store. We hope to add more languages as we expand this feature in the future*
How Do I Install the Wear OS MyFitnessPal App?
You can download the watch app from the Play Store. The Watch app can be downloaded individually as well as along with the Android app.
Why Don't I See an Option to Download this Watch App?
The initial version of the Wear OS app is only available to users with their device set to English.
What Versions of Wear OS is the MyFitnessPal App supported on?
MyFitnessPal is supported on Wear OS 2 and Wear OS 3
Will this Track my Steps?
No. This app is not an exercise integration app such as Google Fit or Samsung Health so it does not have the option to track your steps. You can still link with Samsung Health or Google Fit in the Android app in order to use your Android device or associated Samsung Health or Google Fit device to track your steps.
How Do I Log into MyFitnessPal on my Wear OS Watch?
After the install finishes, opening the Watch App will take you to a Login Screen. Tapping the Log in on phone button will launch a login window in the Wear OS app (called "Galaxy Wearable" on Samsung phones.
The Sign in with Facebook Option is Not Working
Currently, Facebook Login is not supported on the login window that opens on the phone. If you need to create a password, please request a password to be sent to your associated email here.
What Can I Do on the Wear OS App?
The watch app will show you your Summary (including Calories, Carbs, Fat, Protein, and Water) depending on which tile is chosen.
Users also have the option to:
- Add Water
- Quick Add Calories
- Open the Android Phone App
- Log out of the App
Where are the Micronutrients?
Currently only Macronutrients (Fat, Protein, and Carbohydrates) are viewable on the Watch app, but we will be looking into adding Micronutrients in a future update.
How Can I Change My Water Goal?
Since the MyFitnessPal app does not have a set water goal at this time, all users have a default water intake goal of 64 ounces.
My Account is set to Kilojoules but the Wear OS app is still Displaying Calories?
Currently the Wear OS app only displays Calories, but we are looking into adding a Kilojoule option in the future. Adding a specific quick-add calorie amount to the watch app will still convert that calorie amount to kilojoules when viewing the addition on your Android app.
Why Isn't the MyFitnessPal Complication Working/Available on my Watch?
We have two different complications available for our Wear OS app, Quick Add, and Daily Progress. If you cannot find a MyFitnessPal complication to use, please try switching to a different Watch face to see if they are available under a different face. Watch Faces that will work with our complications include: analog dashboard, digital watch-face, simple classic, premium analog, and color duo.
Quick Add - left
Daily Progress - top
Will this Work on My Older Samsung Watch/Tizen Watch
No. As of November 2020, we have discontinued support for the Samsung Watch app.
Any older Samsung watches running Tizen will not be able to use this app as it's only available on the Wear OS platform. It is available to download on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4.
How Long Does it take the Watch App to Sync my Information?
Once opened, the app can take up to 30 seconds to update your information so please be patient if you do not see your newly added information immediately.
Why Can't I Find this in the MyFitnessPal App Gallery?
Since it's not an exercise integration like Google Fit or Samsung Health, the Wear OS app will not show under the Apps and Devices section of the app or website. Please refer to the top of this FAQ for how to download and log into the MyFitnessPal Wear OS app.
