The app doesn't track the work out and steps correctly. It's very far off. My Samsung app tracks every single step I take but google fit doesn't. There are very little function. It allows you to enter the length of work out but you have to enter the calories burned yourself. That's stupid.
This is literally the ONLY app that accurately tracks miles, route and speed accurately for me. I use a wheelchair and am preparing for Team USA tryouts and wanted a way to track my workouts. I've tried Runtastic, Nike+, Map My Run, and a few others with little satisfaction. The reason for this is that most running and fitness apps to some degree are mapped using steps. Naturally, I don't take steps. So, my progress and results were often inaccurately reflected. Google Fit is truly the only one that works. Update: this app no longer tracks miles, mph, or avg mph. This just won't do.
I think this app is a great start but can be a bit difficult to navigate, at times. I like the simple interface, but I also wish that you could flip through the pages like a notebook, to look at stats in categories (like nutrition, activity, sleep). The timeline is a cool option, but I think the implementation could be better. It would be awesome if it automatically senses increased movement and asks if you're doing an activity. Also, it would be awesome if the GPS could coordinate with your steps without you having to start an activity....although, this could be remedied by asking if you're doing an activity, so you won't forget. I understand that battery could be an issue, so maybe crude positioning, instead of super accurate, for those situations. I can't think of any more right now, but I'll add to this. Beyond that, it works well (for tying my wellness apps together and saving all the data) but it could be a bit better.
Disappointing. I used to love this app but now it's not working well. My android watch and phone data often fail to sync and then when they do, they sync to phone-recorded steps rather than those on the watch, lowering the total. The tracking no longer records maps consistently. I contacted Google twice asking for help and received no response. If there was an alternative app I could use to record steps and activities on Android wear I would use it.
Auto detection is garbage. Somehow even when it does manage to track accurately with gps, it gets the distance completely wrong. When workouts are synced from other apps, Fit changes the distances to be wrong. About the only thing it does correctly is manually track an activity, and there are better apps for that.
It's amazing how bad this app is given that it uses Google Maps. It is never able to properly track my runs, it confuses running and walking all the time, and generally sucks. I've begun wonder if it's a joke to entertain Google. I have a Google Pixel and live in a very networked urban area, so I can't see why it should be so awful.
