The official Google Fit app is now available for Android devices through Google Play, allowing Android users to track all of their activity, tying all of the info directly to your Google account. With Google Fit, users can reach personal goals, which are specified by you within the app. These can be running, walking, or even biking goals.

Fit is Google’s answer to Apple’s Health app. It’s a repository for all of your health and fitness data, and it provides a comprehensive view of your progress each and every day. Users can track all the walking, running, and cycling they do — as well as stats like weight and heart rate.




Features include the ability to set goals based on either duration or steps. You can also see comprehensive progress views throughout the day, receive performance-based recommendations for activity goals, and connect with third-party devices and apps.

At first blush, Google Fit seems like a neat start, but it’s limited. It works well as a step counter and activity monitor, but doesn’t really cobble in your caloric intake or other factors contributing to your health stats. It’s a good first step, but needs a lot of work before it’s really competitive with HealthKit, much less Jawbone’s platform.

Google Fit is also compatible with a wide range of fitness tracking accessories and apps like Strava, Withings, Runtastic, Runkeeper and Noom Coach, so now you’ll be able to view all that data straight inside Fit. Compatible with all Android 4.0+ (Ice Cream Sandwich) devices
