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 UI is what you would expect from Google. Very clean, minimal and white (thank you for dark mode). It seems accurate, but it focuses on "move minutes" and "heart points" instead of calories/steps. What is a move minute? I don't know. Google doesn't know. Nobody knows and nobody cares, but they are sticking with it for some reason. I assume it is so they have something proprietary that will separate them from the other trackers. I am separating back to FitBit. Add rucking to activities, pls.

This is terrible at measuring the distance of my walk. I do the same path and it gives me a different readout every time. I don't understand how Google maps are incredibly accurate when I'm driving but not when I'm walking. I've read the suggestion to reset the app every day and that's not an acceptable solution. The only saving grace is getting heart points which are mildly motivating.

Hey Cynthia, 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. For more help, visit: https://goo.gle/3StHUWr

I've been using the app assuming it a standard on my Android, but Samsung health seems like it's becoming a better alternative (since it directly syncs with my watch etc). This app is lacking even simple features like allowing us to change the order of the widgets, etc. The graphs and visuals are nice, but overall features leave a lot to be desired, like syncing with other fit devices in the ecosystem, nudging me with reminders on how I can improve on things, etc
