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:
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.
Should You Sync Your Noom App?
Try out a couple of the above fitness apps and services for free to see which work best for you. Then simply sync them up with Noom for a few days and notice how much more knowledge you’ll gain about your fitness regime.

If you're already convinced, I would suggest that you download it and take advantage of the 14-day trial period for coaching for $1.
You can easily cancel before you get billed, but it will give you a better perspective of all the available benefits.
