Get to a healthier and more active life with the new Google Fit!
It's hard to know how much or what kind of activity you need to stay healthy. That's why Google Fit collaborated with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Heart Association (AHA) to bring you Heart Points, an activity goal that can help improve your health.
Activities that get your heart pumping harder have tremendous health benefits for your heart and mind. You'll earn one Heart Point for each minute of moderate activity like picking up the pace when walking your dog, and double points for more intense activities like running. It takes just 30-minutes of brisk walking five days a week to reach the AHA and WHO's recommended amount of physical activity shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, improve sleep, and increase overall mental wellbeing.
Google Fit will also help you:
TRACK YOUR WORKOUTS FROM YOUR PHONE OR WATCH
Get instant insights when you exercise and see real-time stats for your runs, walks, and bike rides. Fit will use your Android phone's sensors or Wear OS by Google smartwatch's heart rate sensors to record your speed, pace, route, and more.
MONITOR YOUR GOALS
See your daily progress on your Heart Points and Steps goal. Meeting your goals all the time? Easily adjust your goals to keep challenging yourself to achieve a healthy heart and mind.
MAKE ALL YOUR MOVEMENT COUNT
If you walk, run, or bike throughout the day, your Android phone or Wear OS by Google smartwatch will automatically detect and add your activities to your Google Fit journal to ensure you get credit for every move. Want extra credit? Turn up the tempo on your walks by starting a paced walking workout and stepping to the beat. Enjoy a different type of workout? Select it from a list of activities like pilates, rowing, or spinning, and Google Fit will track all the Heart Points you earn.

Safety starts with understanding how developers collect and share your data. Data privacy and security practices may vary based on your use, region, and age. The developer provided this information and may update it over time.
The app does not load adequately. I'm always waiting for the info to be available. Cycle tracking is never accessible when I need it. The journal is also months behind and says it can't refresh. Okay, third at it on my review. You guys have obviously been doing some work because things are running much smoother and the app is linking the right way with other third party apps. Thank you!

Hey Jessica, you can try turning off and on all permissions for automatic tracking on your Google Fit app after restarting your phone. This helps calculate distance and create a map of your activity in your Google Fit journal. You can also check our support page if you need more help: https://bit.ly/3h6ggNK

I can't even begin to tell you what's wrong with this app as there are numerous things including not syncing with smart watches, deleting data on it's own, and not recording my workouts to name a few. I would think Google would be capable of putting out an app than performed better than the overall total failure that this app is. Take a tip from Apple on this one.

Does not correctly sync with Strava. Of my last 10 Strava workouts, over half are missing. Randomly imported activity today but with the wrong date. I did ALL of the suggested "fixes" by the developer and it still doesn't work a lot of the time. Bottom line is this app needs significant improvement instead of expecting users to go through an arduous process every time they want to sync data.

Thanks for leaving feedback, Garrick. We'd suggest clearing the app's cache and data, then check that all app permissions are enabled before running another sync. You might also want to try unlinking and relinking your accounts and see if that helps. For more details, visit our Help Center or community forums: https://goo.gle/3bO9ptH
