Google Fit App now on iOS
It means, Google Fit can track user’s sport activity using Apple Watch. It’s also integrated with the data movement from applications connected to Apple Health, such as Sleep Cycle, Nike Run, and Headspace.
Last August, Google Fit was completely revamped with the Material Theme and a focus on two new metrics. This new Fit is focussed on “smart activity goals” that Google created with the American Heart Association.
One of the metrics is “Move Minutes” which tracked physical activity such as walking, yoga, chores, etc. It will start counting after 30 steps or more.
Another metrics is “Heart Point” which aimed at capturing more moderate activity, like a “brisk walk that’s over 100 steps per minute.” More intense workouts will garner two points/minute.
Both metrics represented as rings arround your profile image in the Home tab. The app lists step count, calories, and miles underneath, with more detailed daily graphs below.
Google Fit will also adjust goals based on your current progress, with assistive notifications providing encouragement.
Because its integrated with Apple Health, Google Fit will collect steps count and distance information Apple Health recorded to calculate the Move Minutes and Heat Point. This includes data collected by your iPhone or paired Apple Watch.
Google Fit to Apple Health
The Journal tab provides a historical overview of activity. Since Google Fit connects to Apple Health, it can surface and collate data from other synced apps like Nike Run Club and Headspace. This chronological view can list sleep, walking, and workouts from wearables.
Other activities include yoga and even breathing sessions, with each listing featuring an icon, distance, and Move Minutes/Heart Points earned. Each entry can be tapped to provide more details, and notes where the data was derived from.
A FAB in the bottom-right corner allows users to manually record activities, while the Profile tab allows you to manage sync, your daily activity goals, and other app settings.
Google’s fitness app is an aggregator of health data rather than a creator. For now, Google is just taking that data to calculate Move Minutes and Heart Points, which might be a better measure of activity than just step count.
The Google Fit apps can be downloaded on Apple’s AppStore.
