Google released Google Fit with a massive revamp last year, the app tracked a users activity and presented it in a similar layout of rings like Apple’s activity app.
Some key features of Google Fit are:
• Move Minutes: When it comes to your health, it’s important to move more and sit less. Earn Move
Minutes for all of your activity and get motivated to make small, healthier changes throughout your day, like taking the stairs instead of the lift or catching up with a friend over a walk instead of a coffee.
• Heart Points: Activities that get your heart pumping harder have tremendous health benefits for your heart and mind. You’ll earn one hleart Point for each minute of moderate activity, like picking up the pace when walking your dog, and double points for more intense activities like running. It takes just 30-minutes of brisk walking five days a week to reach the AhlA and WhlO’s recommended amount of physical activity shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, improve sleep and increase overall mental well-being.
Google Fit will also help you track your workouts from your phone or watch. Users can get insights and see stats for your runs, walks and bike rides. Google Fit will use your phone or smartwatah sensors to record your heart rate, speed, pace, route and more.
We will be testing Google Fit over the next few days and will report back on how we have found the overall experience.
