The latest version of Google Fit, which started rolling out yesterday to Android devices that have it installed, brings with it some interesting new features. These have been detailed by Google today.
First off, real-time stats are now supported, which means you can instantly see how you're doing in your runs, walks, and rides. Google Fit records information about your speed, route, pace, and elevation. All of these things are available at a glance while you're training.
If you have an Android Wear watch, you now also get support for strength training in Google Fit. Your smartwatch will automatically detect and count all of your sit-ups, push-ups, and squats. These will be added to your daily activity, all you need to do is start a daily challenge first.
Finally, Google Fit is now integrated with more apps and fitness trackers than ever. It can monitor your diet through MyFitnessPal, Fatsecret, Lifesum, or LoseIt. And sleep tracking can happen with Sleep as Android, the Xiaomi Mi Band and Mi Band 1S, Sony Smartband 2, or the Basis Peak. These new integrations are going to be rolled out "in the coming days".
Probably people without your level of motivation ;) Some of us need to make it into a game to even walk anywhere.
I wonder who has use for this. Being an athlete training for future olympics, I can tell you that we use very different ways to log activity. The exact number of push ups you have done a certain year is quite irrelevant to your shape.
Finally, real-time data!!
