Google Fit App to track all your Exercise Progress

Google announced it back at Google I/O 2014 in June, and built in support for it into Android 5.0 Lollipop in August, but it's now finally here, it being Google Fit. The app just hit Google Play, bringing a fairly basic activity tracker to your Android phone. Google Fit tracks walking, running, and cycling activity, either on your phone or from an Android Wear device.

It's worth noting that installing Google Fit will wipe any activity tracking on your Android Wear smartwatch, so you'll be starting over in the process.

Here’s what Google Fit can do:

  • Reach your fitness goals
  • Set goals based on either duration or steps and see your progress throughout the day.
  • Receive performance-based recommendations for activity goals.
  • A comprehensive view of your fitness – Connect third party devices and apps to Fit and we’ll show you all of your fitness data in one place.
  • Available everywhere – Compatible with all Android Wear devices. – Also access Google Fit on the web at www.google.com/fit and on your tablet.

Google prepared some APIs to give developers more tools to use these new activities. We should expect a large number of applications that use sensors to pop up in the Play Store. It’s important to note that installing Google Fit on your Android Wear device will wipe all your existing activity tracking.

The application will work with pretty much every device available on the market running Android 4.0 and higher, so you can play with it even now. Even without Android Wear, you can download the app from the Google Fit Play Store listing. Now, it’s time to go ahead and leave your chair and do some running!
