Google Fit now tracks under more your speed, pace, and route traveled by which to ensure that you stay motivated to exercise regularly.
More importantly, Google Fit now can integrate data from popular fitness and sleep apps. Examples include MyFitnessPal, FatSecret, Lifesum, and Sleep as Android. Your sleep can also be tracked if you have a smart wristband as the Sony Smart Band 2. Such a device tracks various activities and can now redirect this to Google Fit.
For additional convenience, Fit is now more suitable for strength training. If you have an Android Wear smartwatch, you can keep track of how many push-ups you’ve done on the smartwatch. Google Fit automatically detects when you start moving.
