Google Fit arrives on iOS
April 25, 2019

A new way to track your health goals.

Google Fit has just made its way to iOS, which was originally just an Android-only app. The app lets you focus on ‘smart activity goals’ that Google has made with the American Health Association.

Included on the app are Move Minutes that are earned by doing your usual exercise routines – walking, running or even yoga. You earn a move minute when it records 30 or more steps. Next is Heart Points that records moderate workouts like brisk walking where it detects about 100 steps per minute.

Harder workouts will yield more points, all of which are accessible on the Home tab where you can also see the basic health stats like calories burned and step count. There will also be notifications that will encourage you to start moving and the best part? All these data integrates with the Health app so it can also use data that are taken from your Apple Watch or a Wear OS device.

Google Fit is now available on the App Store for free.
