Google Fit finally hits Android
Fitness and health apps are a major thing on Play Store since it help every user to track their health whenever they work out. And that’s why Google has finally released Google Fit. Although Google Fit isn’t exclusive to other Google’s approving apps and devices alone, and it is open to other previous and perhaps more popular fitness platforms that are already in the market.
What Google Fit does is collect data through user’s smartphones while the user is running, walking or even cycling. Users can also set their goals based on duration, steps and receive performance based recommendation to help users reach their fitness goals. This is normal for a fitness tracking platform but if there is one thing Google excels is good at, it is collecting data.
Since the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, users thinks that Google Fit only works on Android Lollipop and even on a smart watch. But technically, Google Fit works on Android Ice Cream Sandwich and above. No wearable is required as long as users are keeping their phone only for workout.
The interface looks easy to read and navigate, covering the most basic fitness needs. Consecutively, Apple’s health is a little more confusing and not so flashy as users have to wait for the Apple Watch.
Users can check out Google Fit on Play Store and start keeping track of their health and activities.
