Google Fit gets a complete revamp with new UI and fitness goals

Google Fit adds new tools to entice you to exercise Google Fit update focuses on upping your heart rate with your phone or Wear OS watch

Google Fit now includes features called Heart Points and Move Minutes. And if you happen to hit the gym without your phone or a watch, you can add the activity in after and Google will estimate how many of those Heart Points you've earned. The company says it worked with the American Heart Association (AHA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to determine the amount and intensity of physical activity needed to improve your health.

Google has updated its fitness tracking app Google Fit. But as Apple builds out its own fitness features with an upcoming Watch OS update, keeping pace won't be easy.

Another feature of the redesigned Google Fit: you'll get customized tips and actionable coaching like pointers on ways to rack up more Heart Points.

'When it comes to your health, it's important to move more and sit less, ' the technology giant said.

'Activities that get your heart pumping harder result in even greater health benefits. Moderate activity, like fast walking, will earn you one point per minute, while more intense stuff like running or kickboxing will net you two points per minute.

Trump Speechwriter Fired After For Attending White Nationalist Event In 2016
On Saturday evening, McGahn's lawyer confirmed the White House counsel had cooperated with Mueller's team. Trump today continued to rail against the Mueller investigation, which he has labeled a "witch hunt".


Google also confirmed that the new version of the Fit app would support data from other fitness apps and trackers, including products by Nike, Strava and Runkeeper. The app has also been upgraded with data on more than 120 other activities. Today they have announced their new Google Fit app created to bring their fitness tracking up to par.

'It takes just 30 minutes of brisk walking five days a week to reach the AHA and WHO's recommended amount of physical activity, which is shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, improve sleep, and increase overall mental well-being'.

Tapping the health and fitness market is a priority for Apple and Google, which both consider movement and health tracking as a key selling point for their wearable devices. Instead it will live inside the Wear OS app, where you'll be able to see the same overview of your activity, but won't be able to log workouts without a Wear OS smartwatch.
