    Pikmin Bloom uses fitness information from your Google account to display your steps in the app. However, Pikmin Bloom may not always have the latest step count from your Google account. It may take several hours for Pikmin Bloom to sync with your Google account and correctly track your activity.

    Follow these methods if the steps are not reflected even after several hours:

    Restart your device

    To make sure your steps are counted in Pikmin Bloom, you may need to restart your device first. If that doesn’t work, check the following settings on your device. Please note that the names and locations of these settings may vary depending on your device model.

    Google Fit Settings

    To sync your steps with Pikmin Bloom, you must first install the Google Fit app. However, if you are an Android user and your Google account is for a child under 13 (or your country’s age limit), you won’t be able to use Google Fit.

    In that case, you can skip this step. Next, open the Google Fit app and follow these steps:

    • Press Profile.
    • Tap the gear button in the top right corner of the screen.
    • In Tracking Preferences, make sure Tracking your activity is turned on.
    • Tap Connected Apps and check if Pikmin Bloom is connected.

    3. Press Battery.
