Noom is a popular calorie counting app that focuses on users’ psychological approach to eating and weight management. The app includes mini-lessons, certified wellness coaches, and user support groups, emphasizing behavioral change rather than crash dieting. The ultimate purpose of Noom is to help users create healthy relationships with the foods they eat.

How to connect Noom to your Apple Watch

  • Tap on the menu icon in the top left corner and tap Settings.
  • Scroll down to the section titled Apps & Devices and tap Connect to the Health app.
  • Tap Yes, let’s go! to allow Noom to access your data.
  • Tap Turn On All, then tap Allow.
  • Once you connect Noom to Apple Health, you will receive a prompt to modify your data source for steps. Tap Yes, then tap the toggle next to Health app Steps to allow Noom to use steps from your Health Watch.

Noom and Apple Health data

Noom is able to sync the following data from the Apple Health app:

  • Active Energy
  • Blood Glucose
