Google Fit Launches on iPhone With Apple Health and Apple Watch Integration

[2019-04-24 08:45:13]

Over four years after debuting on Android, and following a significant redesign last year, Google Fit is now available on iOS. The fitness tracking app can track workout sessions completed with both an Apple Watch or a Wear OS smartwatch, and it also integrates movement data from apps connected to Apple Health, such as Sleep Cycle, Nike Run Club, and Headspace. Google Fit keeps users motivated with Move Minutes and Heart Points based on American Heart Association and World Health Organization recommendations for weekly physical activity. The more you move, the more Move Minutes you earn. The more intensely you move, the more Heart Points you earn. A journal feature allows users to track their activities and view their progress towards weekly Move Minutes and Heart Points goals. While some Google Fit data was already available on iOS through the Wear OS app, owning a Wear OS smartwatch was a requirement. With full Apple Health and Apple Watch integration, the standalone Google Fit app is a much better solution. Google Fit is a free download on the App Store.Tags: Google, Google FitThis article, "Google Fit Launches on iPhone With Apple Health and Apple Watch Integration" first appeared on MacRumors.comDiscuss this article in our forums
