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

  • I signed up for the 7 day trial but it did not have me make an account. I entered my billing info already and want to cancel it but can’t find how to do it.

  • How about NOOM pros and cons review side by side? Why asking people to weigh themselves daily? it reinforce the diet mentality and can trigger disordered eating. Why not asking to rate their energy, mood etc daily instead of weight? Why prescribing 1200 kcal / day for everyone. Very inappropriate for satiety, feeling of deprivation which leads to binges. Not enough intuitive eating in the program. Also, their green, yellow and red food rating is off. I like the idea of color coding but their are foods that should be bumped in yellow or green. It teaches there are good and bad foods, which is another diet mentality way of eating. We need to get away from the diet mentality. That is old science. We know better. I like their psychology but they lack in the nutrition knowledge department.

  • You need to update your review of the Noom app.
    Downloading the app is free, but as of March 2021, once you make an account you have to sign up for the free trial, (which includes giving them a credit card number), in order to use the app. You never get a “a ton of functionality” for free. It’s either sign up or give up.
