How do I earn Power?

In THE OUTBREAK, POWER is a currency you can spend to conduct in-game actions like killing zombies, passing obstacles, or healing your character.

You earn POWER in THE OUTBREAK by syncing in your exercise. You have several options for syncing exercise (see below).

Note that if you are using a fitness tracker such as a Fitbit or MIO SLICE you must have an active Bluetooth connection and sync your device to its respective app. All options assume an active connection to the Internet for your smartphone to communicate your activity data to the necessary sources.

Fitbit (iOS and Android)

To import your Fitbit activity, you must connect your Fitbit account to THE OUTBREAK by navigating to SETTINGS > ACCOUNT > PAIR FITNESS TRACKER in THE OUTBREAK app, and following the on-screen prompts to grant access to your steps and workout data.

Once you’ve connected your Fitbit account to THE OUTBREAK, workouts tracked in the Fitbit App will generate Power in THE OUTBREAK.

At the time of this writing, workouts may be tracked in the Fitbit app by clicking TRACK EXERCISE on the Fitbit App Dashboard.

Google Fit (Android Only)

To import your Google Fit activity, you must connect your Google account to THE OUTBREAK by navigating to SETTINGS > ACCOUNT > PAIR FITNESS TRACKER in THE OUTBREAK app, and following the on-screen prompts to grant access to your steps and workout data.

Once you’ve connected your Google Fit account to THE OUTBREAK, workouts tracked in the Google Fit App or online at https://fit.google.com/ will generate Power in THE OUTBREAK.

Note that it can take up to 30 minutes for data to import from Google Fit

Apple Watch (iOS Only)

To import your activity from Apple Watch, you must connect Apple HealthKit to THE OUTBREAK by navigating to SETTINGS > ACCOUNT > PAIR FITNESS TRACKER in THE OUTBREAK app, and following the on-screen prompts to grant access to your steps and workout data.

Once you’ve enabled Apple HealthKit as a source, workouts tracked on your Apple Watch in the native Workouts app will generate Power in THE OUTBREAK.

Apple Health App (iOS Only)

To import your activity from Apple Health, you must connect Apple HealthKit to THE OUTBREAK by navigating to SETTINGS > ACCOUNT > PAIR FITNESS TRACKER in THE OUTBREAK app, and following the on-screen prompts to grant access to your steps and workout data.

Once you’ve enabled Apple Healthkit as a source, tracking workouts in the Apple Health app will generate power in THE OUTBREAK.

At the time of this writing, you can track workouts in the Apple Health app by navigating to the HEALTH DATA screen and tapping ACTIVITY > WORKOUTS > +. Be sure to set the TIME DURATION for your workout.

Third Party Exercise Apps via Apple HealthKit (iOS Only)

To import your activity from third party apps via Apple HealthKit, you must connect Apple HealthKit to THE OUTBREAK by navigating to SETTINGS > ACCOUNT > PAIR FITNESS TRACKER in THE OUTBREAK app, and following the on-screen prompts to grant access to your steps and workout data.

In order to sync your activity from a third party app via Apple HealthKit, two sets of permissions must be granted in the Apple Health app:

1) Your steps/exercise tracking app(s) must have permission to write STEPS and WORKOUTS to Apple HealthKit.

2) THE OUTBREAK must have permission to read STEPS and WORKOUTS from Apple HealthKit.

Once you’ve enabled Apple HealthKit as a source and ensured proper permissions are granted, workouts tracked in your third party exercise app will generate Power in THE OUTBREAK.

MIO PAI 2.0 App (iOS and Android)

To import your MIO SLICE activity, you must connect your MIO account to THE OUTBREAK by navigating to SETTINGS > ACCOUNT > PAIR FITNESS TRACKER in THE OUTBREAK app, and following the on-screen prompts to grant access to your steps and workout data.

As of the time of this writing, the MIO PAI 2.0 App currently requires the MIO SLICE wearable, connected to your smartphone via Bluetooth, to record the PAI metric.

Once you’ve connected your MIO SLICE to the MIO PAI 2.0 App, and your MIO account to THE OUTBREAK, you will receive Power in-game for the PAI recorded in the MIO PAI 2.0 App from your MIO SLICE wearable.
