Google Fit is an app from Google that allows you to measure your fitness levels. The app is part of the Google Fit platform, which was announced in June 2014. The Google Fit app for Android combines measurements from different apps. Developers can link their apps with Google Fit, so you can read the data. The solution is similar to the Apple Health app, where you can also read measurements from a variety of fitness and sports apps.
Yet there is a difference: Google Fit app also carries out measurements. The app measures the number of steps and effort while running and biking. The app looks like Moves.
Installing Google Fit app
After installing the app on your Android smartphone, log in with your Google Account. Google Fit then measure everything and shows daily and weekly statistics. You can also set goals based on duration or number of steps. The app shows you your progress. Google Fit also gives recommendations based on your performance. If you pair your activity trackers, fitness bracelets, and other accessories with the app, you can read their data.
Apps like Strava, Withings, and Runkeeper already support it. Do you want to install the Google Fit app, then you need at least one Android device with version 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).
