Because of my profession as a fitness instructor, I’ve always preached to my clients about the benefits of keeping a diet and exercise journal. Today, it’s all made so much easier with the help of services like Noom.

What’s even better these days is the ability to share and sync data between different health and fitness apps. While syncing data has become easier than ever before, I still often get asked what services can interact with Noom.

To help you better understand what you can actually sync with Noom, I’ve put together this quick guide.

What Apps Can You Sync with Noom?

Apple kept iOS extremely restricted for a very long time, and it still seems like they make it rather difficult to allow app developers to share and store data across apps and with the operating system as well.

However, in recent months, the list of iOS apps that can now officially sync with Noom has vastly grown, and it covers the same range as Android.

This is the most up-to-date list of iOS and Android apps that Noom can sync with:

Bewell Connect Biomedtrics Fitbit Fitbug Garmin Connect
iHealth Life Trak Lumo Microsoft Misfit Wearables
Movable Moves App Polar Qardio Runkeeper
Sony Lifelog Striiv Withings YOO Sony Lifelog

This list probably covers over 95% of all the most popular diet and fitness services currently used, with the majority of them being free.

Basically, you’ll be able to combine everything from your food intake to step counting and calories burned in one place.

Benefits of Syncing Your Data

While Noom is a great service for everything food-related, it doesn’t have the same capabilities as Fitbit or Polar when it comes to tracking your activity levels.

However, if you use other apps and services that monitor your activity, then you can combine all that data into very powerful information.

1. Getting Precise Data From Wearables

Wearable monitoring technology from Fitbits to Apple Watches and Polar heart rate monitors are incredibly popular because they have become so affordable.

This technology, according to some studies, is increasingly helping people to better monitor their health status both at an activity/fitness level for self-health tracking (1)

A simple wrist strap can tell you exactly how many steps you took, how far and fast you jogged, and even how many stairs you climbed on any given day.

When you assess that data with your height, weight, and general fitness level, then you can get a pretty accurate reading of the number of calories burned.

Combine that data with your detailed food intake recorded in Noom, and you’ll be able to see exactly how well your diet and physical activity are working together to get you to your weight goals.

2. Easy Sharing of Progress

Of course, this is my personal favorite, and something I request from all my clients. Your work with a personal coach or dietitian will become so much easier when you can simply share all your diet and fitness data with the press of a button.

About the author

  • Thanks for this article! But Isaac, if you’re going to pick between noom vs weight watchers, what would you choose for your own lifestyle? What app is better for weight loss?

    • Hi Lisa! I will choose Noom because of its better calorie tracking and coaching features. It’s also easy to use and cost effective. This app is focused to help you in your weight loss journey!

  • I was a member of another program for a few years and got down to my goal weight. But things suddenly changed. They started changing their program too many times until it confused the hell out of me. One day I decided not to stay a member. They missed the mark when they decided that certain foods would be zero points even though they are not; a zero point orange actually must have a point, right? But the zero points makes you think it will have no impact on your goal. Nevertheless, with this words from Isaac. I was totally convinced that my decision before was correct. I will now switch to this app and start rebuilding myself. Thanks you, Isaac!

  • A subscription model app to help lose weight seems ridiculous and a great way to bleed people dry who are unable to take responsibility for what they put in their mouths. While tracking and awareness provided by this app can help, an app won’t do squat if you are not committed to changing your behavior. Lack of long term/permanent behavior changes cannot be fixed by an app, but it will provide the failed weight loss person with something other than themselves to blame for failure. I’ve been there. I’ve had and maintained very significant weight loss for 25 years so I do have some idea what I am talking about. But I definitely agree with Isaac on this one. I will want you guys to try the mobile app out. Let us know what you have experienced with these programs

  • I like the flexibility of phone and computer accessibilities of the two programs. The previous program I had mainly because of the group meetings, leader encouragement and member interaction with ideas. To be honest, I love using this new program on their mobile app for tracking. My main dislike of the previous program is not knowing my total daily intake of food contents at a glance. A point that this program emphasizes doesn’t educate me. So I sort of left it and joined this new program with their mobile app. Slowly losing, so for me it’s working. Will keep you updated Isaac.

  • Thank you so much Isaac for taking the time to compare these two programs which everyone is debating on. In my experience, I have been a member of one of the two programs for several years. I did great and lost a lot of weight, but then they changed the program without asking if you were interested in changing to a different version of the plan which kinda sucks. I have not had very good luck staying on the new version of the program. Now I have gained weight on a vacation. I have thought about giving this other program with the mobile app a try, but I am so glad that I read the information that you have posted before subscribing to it. I only have a flip phone, and have no desire to have a smart phone… But due to your thoughts, I am willing to buy a smart phone just for this mobile app. Thank you so much for outlining how this mobile app works!

  • Thanks for sharing your well-thought-out assessment and comparison of the two programs. I tried the mobile app program. But I found the app-only aspect to be a big negative. While I was excited to try something new and was encouraged by the concept of a coach, I wasn’t able to successfully navigate the app on the small screen of my phone. I quit after three days when my frustration level regarding the technology aspect just overwhelmed me. I would have been more interested had they offered a format I could have used on my laptop with a larger screen. I am 63 years old. Perhaps, I do not fit the mobile app profile of happy app users as it is difficult for me for my age. Nonetheless, thanks again for your great comparison, Sir Robertson. Hoping to find the program that best fits me.

  • I started signing up for the mobile app in summer of 2019 and lost the a handful of weight. I struggled for years to get rid of but with patience. I found the app very smart at helping to uncover the reasons and triggers that drive mindless eating. But you won’t reach that understanding in a week. I was motivated to take the time to lose the weight slowly and did so in about three months. The daily interactive discussions are well-written, clever and engaging and as you get further into the app, require more thought and participation to find out what makes you tick when it comes to food. You start out stating clear goals about what you want to change in your relationship to food. I have also had epiphanies about other aspects of my life that have been borne of these daily discussions. Aside from this app, I had another program I ever had success with losing my extra kilos. However, I think this mobile app is even smarter and more effective compared to the other program I had. As a matter of fact, it also turns out to be cheaper than the other capitalist program. After years of going in and out of that expensive program, I found the meetings stale and mostly a gab session of people sharing tips about the latest pre-packaged products sold by the program and how many points they were. On the other hand, this mobile app focused me on adding much more green food into my already healthy food plan. I am a huge fan of this mobile app. Thanks Isaac. I totally agree with you on this one!

  • I was a chronic participant of the older program, and I lose and gain. I join and quit. I can’t stick with the program because they change annually. They say they change, but it’s relearning over and over. They were inconsistent which made me inconsistent in return. For good, I stopped all at once and rested for a while. Then, I decided to try the new mobile app after finding out your overview about it. I fell in love with it. I totally loved it. I loved the daily tools – they were whimsical and kept my attention. Also, the coaches were great and the group I was assigned to were from all walks of life. This was daily, so it did keep me more on track. I was able to convince my wife and we will be nerds together for this app.

  • Hi, thanks for your insight Isaac. I joined the program for over 25 years and though it did work I always went back to eating again and gained weight. Thus the 25 years wasted!! My daughter has lost over 50+ pounds while using the mobile app and she loves it. As jealous of her, I am trying it now and love it as well. I feel it really teaches you better choices in food and their system really works. Change your way of thinking about food really makes a huge difference. This is what I learned after joining the mobile app.
