If you signed up to the Second Nature NoTech programme, you will have received your Second Nature recipe book and handbook together with some FAQs about how you'll be able to track your weight and steps using the Second Nature app. 

You can follow this guide if you're using an Apple device (iPhone or iPad).

For Android devices you will find the necessary instructions here.

Once you've downloaded the Second Nature app from the App Store, you'll be able to track your weight and step count if you wish to. There are different ways to do this:

1. Enter your step count and weight manually

You can do this by going to the 'Track' section of the app. You can add both your weight and steps together with the corresponding date.
 

2. Track your steps using your phone 

  • Select 'Go to profile' in the top righthand corner of the 'Home' page in the Second Nature app
  • Select 'Settings' in the top righthand corner
  • Scroll down to the 'Tracking' heading 
  • Select 'Connect Apple Health'

You will then be prompted to follow these steps: 

  • Go to your Apple Health app
  • Select the picture icon in the top right corner
  • Under 'Privacy', select ‘Apps’
  • Select ‘Second Nature’
  • Make sure ‘Steps' is enabled

You should also make sure that your phone's privacy settings are set up correctly: 

  • Open device Settings 
  • Go to Privacy 
  • Health 
  • Second Nature
  • Enable 'Steps'

Note: These instructions are for iOS version 13.1.13 and later. If your device is on an older operating system, please follow the steps at the bottom of the this article.* 

3. Using a FitBit 

Unfortunately FitBit doesn’t allow its data to be shared with the Second Nature app. You can however enter in your steps from your FitBit manually at the end of each day. Alternatively, you connect FiBit to Second Nature via a third party application such as 'SyncSolver' which you can purchase from the App Store.

4. Using a Garmin watch 

You can sync your Garmin through Apple Health. Once you have synced your Garmin watch with Apple Health, you will then be able to sync the Second Nature app with Apple Health.

5. Sync your wireless/bluetooth scales 

If your scales can be synced with Apple Health, you will be able to sync Apple Health with the Second Nature app.
