Google Fit update

Google has just recently updated its Fit apps and Wear OS to make it easier for users to find all their health-related metrics quickly and more easily in one place.

What has been changed?

The Google Fit app has been revamped on Android and iOS to bring all health-related data across your different connected apps and devices into one easy-to-view hub. In addition to being able to view a summary of your metrics at a glance on the homescreen, you’ll be able to see if you’re meeting your daily and weekly goals for Heart Points and Steps, view your most recent workout, and keep track of your heart rate, weight and blood pressure trends over time.

Also is now more sleep information in Google Fit, which can pick data from devices such as the Fossil Gen 5E Smartwatch, Oura Ring or Withings sleep tracking mat, or use a sleep-tracking app like Sleep As Android or Sleep Cycle. As a result, you get to more easily track your nightly activity, view sleep stages, set a goal for your bedtime schedule and more.

Also added were shortcuts in the Google Fit Workouts Tile on Wear OS by Google smartwatches to take you to your most recent workouts so you can get moving faster. And while you’re working out, you’ll be able to see all your metrics in one view on your screen. You can set goals for your workouts and receive pace alerts to know if you’re staying on track.

The Google Fit app on Android or iOS lets you view a summary of your walk or run on a map, along with pace and mile markers. To celebrate your accomplishments and encourage friends and family to get active, you can now share stats, routes or photos from your favorite Google Fit journal entries to social media or by messaging apps.

Finally, Google updated the weather experience on Wear OS by Google with a bolder design that’s easier on the eyes and provides you with more relevant forecast details, including precipitation and weather alerts.

Plus, there’s the new Breathe Tile to help you decompress with easier access to guided breathing sessions.

When can you get these updates?

According to Google, these updates will be rolling out over the next few days. It is their hope that these tools will give you everything you need to improve your wellbeing at home, or on the go.
