MoveSpring pulls your steps from your device’s cloud, not your device directly. You have to sync to your devices app to get your steps to MoveSpring. They check in with your device’s cloud about every 10 minutes to see if you have synced anything new and when they find new data, they fetch around the last 36 hours and pull it into MoveSpring. “Force Sync” in our system forces MoveSpring to check with your device’s cloud instantly rather than waiting for the automatic check to happen.
