Google Fit update adds calories, widget and an Android Wear face

The Google Fit app got an important update, adding few handy features to the mix.

First, the application will now estimate distance and calories burned, provided that users have included their gender, height and weight information.

Then, there's the ability to look back over to one's fitness history through the listing that groups activities by days, weeks or months to get a sense of how these activities impact fitness over time.

Finally, the search giant also released a Google Fit widget and an Android Wear watch face. With a quick glance at the phone or watch, users will be able to see how close they are to their goal and stay motivated.

According to Google, these new additions to Google Fit should help users "stay on track to reach their fitness goals." The update is free for all users.
