Earlier this year, we redesigned Google Fit around new activity goals based on American Heart Association and World Health Organization physical activity recommendations. Many of you have shared your feature requests and today—just in time for the busy holidays—we’re bringing new updates to make it easier to achieve your health goals.
Quicker access to your progress and improved activity logging
You can now see your progress at a glance on your Android home screen with new Google Fit widgets. Pin a widget to instantly check your Heart Points, Move Minutes and other daily stats.
Google Fit now features your last workout on the home screen. When manually logging a workout in the journal, you’ll also have the option to adjust your activity intensity and get awarded more accurate Heart Points for it.
Take a deep breath, relax and unwind
Between last-minute gift shopping, holiday decorations, and family gatherings, there’s a lot to do and plan for the holidays. On Wear OS by Google watches, Google Fit will now guide you through a breathing exercise to help you unwind and relax.
We’ll be rolling out these updates on your Android phone or Wear OS by Google watch this week. If you’re new to Google Fit, try the app here to kick-start your journey to a healthier, more active life.
