Google has released a few days ago its new app called Google Fit which help you track your physical activity and keep a look on your fitness.
Google Fit is a single set of APIs that blends data from multiple apps and devices. Lots of important companies on the fitness market have already join it like Nike, HTC, LG, Withings, Motorola, Noom, Runtastic, RunKeeper and Polar.
Like Apple’s HealthKit and Samsung’s S Health before it, Google Fit aims to help you lead a healthier life by keeping track of your activity and other health metrics.
There’s a Web version of Google Fit, which missing on Apple’s iPhone-only system. That means you can record fitness data on your Android smartphone or smartwatch, and then review it on a desktop or tablet—a scenario Apple doesn’t currently allow.
The application was launched to the public on October 28, 2014, and is available to all Android users running 4.0 or above. It does sync with Android Wear devices, which are much more reliable when it comes to tracking users activity.
The app pulls data from your smartwatch to populate its own graphs and give you a better idea of how much exercise you’ve had today. For now, Google Fit only tracks running, walking, and bicycling as activities, but it can monitor your heart rate from your Android Wear watch.
Much more functionalities to come around health and exercise make the app really promising.
