SIH Features List
Improved Step Counting
SIH Plus mobile app is now employing latest technologies implemented in smartphones.
The result is a more accurate step counting and longer battery life.
Apple and Android Smart Watches
If you wear an Apple or Android smart watch, from now on you will not miss a step.
The SIH app now integrates with both watches.
So we will count your steps even if you don’t carry your phone. More info at
FitBit users are now welcome!
SIH Mobile app now integrates with FitBit cloud services. So, FitBit users can now enjoy all the benefits offered in Step into Health program like calories tracking and weight loss planning, but still use FitBit for other functions like step counting and heart monitoring.
For security and confidentiality purposes, it is worth noting that we don’t keep your FitBit login details in SIH systems.
If you uninstall the SIH APP, we will not remember your FitBit login.
If you decided to upgrade your phone and installed SIH app on the new phone you will need to enter your FitBit details again.
Set up your FitBit on SIH mobile app. Read more at

Our Mobile App will upload the step count every 4 hours.
You also have the choice to upload the steps on-demand from the settings menu. So you can now compete with/challenge your "buddies" and you can see each other's performance during the day on the app dashboard.

  1. Loyalty medals
  2. Walking Levels
