Yes, Lark can read your activity data from wearable devices. Your Lark application receives data about your activity and health using your phone’s default Health apps. For iPhone users, this is the Apple Health app. For Android users, this app is the Google Fit app.
- If your device (such an Apple Watch® or Samsung® Watch) is already connected to your phone's Health app, Lark will automatically transfer this activity data to your Lark app.
- If your device does not connect to your smart phone's health app (such as a Fitbit®, Garmin Watch®, Amazfit®, or non-smart pedometer), you can add your activity manually into the Lark app. While Lark and Fitbit don't yet connect or sync directly, this is a great way to account for some of your activity data.

*Eligibility requirements for the Lark Diabetes Prevention Program include qualifying as prediabetic according to a survey designed by the Centers for Disease Control, and maintaining adequate insurance coverage via participating health insurance providers and plans. You must meet participation requirements in the program to qualify for a scale provided at no cost to you and earn a free Fitbit® tracker. Lark requires engagement with the program for a minimum of ten weeks after enrollment to be eligible to earn a Fitbit. Fitbit trackers cannot be earned prior to that time.
