Right now, when people exercise with an interactive game like Lightboxer, Beat Saber, or Dance Central using the Oculus Quest 2, the data is only viewable on the Oculus mobile app on the headset, which is specifically designed for those who use the Oculus Quest 2. Not useful to track the fitness metrics of those who prefer.

Starting April, fitness data from the Oculus Quest 2 will sync from the Oculus mobile app on iOS devices or with the Apple Health app. Users will track minutes spent working out and calories burned while wearing the VR headset.

If you have an iOS device, you can set your VR fitness progress with the Apple Health app to automatically track your VR workouts on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch without having to manually input information about your exercises. You can choose to sync. This means all your exercise stats, including your activities in and out of VR, can be tracked and available in one place.

Syncing Oculus Quest 2 data to the Oculus mobile app or Apple Health app is opt-in, but choosing to connect to the Oculus mobile app will show move stats stored on Meta’s servers. Meta says that Oculus Move statistics will not be used to “inform the ads you see on any Meta Services.”
