You can now sync your Garmin directly to YuLife, in order to earn YuCoin for your daily steps. Challenges will still track steps from your phone, which means you must keep your phone on you during challenges.
Currently, there is a sync delay in some devices, which will cause steps from Garmin not to sync until the end of the day. This will not affect your YuCoin, and steps/coins will be awarded and reflected correctly in your activity history the next day

Understanding Garmin Steps and YuCoin:
Your YuLife app will capture step data from both your phone's health app and your Garmin device. If you look at your activity history, you will be able to see the steps count from both. YuCoin will be awarded for whichever step count is higher, and that is what steps will be displayed on the app home screen as well.
NOTE: At the moment, challenges track steps from your phone. That means you must keep your phone on you during challenges.
