When it comes to fitness, every effort counts: each step, sit-up, snack, and good night’s sleep. That’s why Google Fit’s latest update recognizes all your healthy choices: from cardio to strength training, what you eat plus how you rest, and coaches you every step of the way.
Instant insights. See real-time stats for your runs, walks and rides on your phone. Google Fit will record your speed, pace, route, elevation, and more so you can stay motivated and on track.
Strength training. Want to add push-ups to your routine? If you have an Android Wear watch, you can start a daily challenge and your watch will automatically detect and count each sit-up, push-up, and squat. They'll be added to your daily activity, so you get credit for each one.
The whole picture. Google Fit will now show you info from your favorite nutrition and sleep apps. Monitor your diet with MyFitnessPal, Fatsecret, Lifesum, or LoseIt. Or track your sleep with Sleep as Android, Xiaomi Mi Band and Mi Band 1S, Sony Smartband 2, or the Basis Peak. These new integrations (rolling out in the coming days) will provide even better insights into your health and fitness. And with Google Fit, you'll always have a personal coach cheering you on, right from your phone.
When you’re able to view your overall fitness, you may just start making better choices: taking the stairs instead of the elevator, choosing salads over eclairs. Looking to stay fit this holiday season? Check out the new Google Fit updates and start making every effort count.
