Google has unconfined its Fit app, which acts as a vital depot for activity documented via your Android device, and via apps that use the Google Fit SDK announced at the I/O developer symposium back in June. The devoted Android app is pretty auxiliary, but it offers a way for users to see an impression of their collected health and fitness data in one fundamental place.
The Google Fit app doesn’t present me with much as of right now, but it uses your device’s antennae to track walking and other movement, and you can physically enter info about exercises not tracked, or your height and weight. Heart rate info from friendly devices, plus Android Wear smart watches, is also served to the app. In short, it’s a opponent to Apple’s Health app, but with a very dissimilar tactic to UI that seems to want to aim for ease above all else.
Google Fit also has a web-based target at Google.com/fit which doesn’t seem to be live just yet, and it’s probably we’ll see more types presented to the app as designers begin to discover and work with the platform. This is also another prompt that Android 5.0 Lollipop’s publication is just around the bend, with the first customer devices sporting the OS upcoming next week.
