Google Fit update adds digital watch face, new workout trainer
- 18 November, 2015 21:36
Google Fit is getting an early start on all those New Year’s resolutions.
When you take the pledge to get healthier, Google’s fitness app will be ready with new workout challenges and nifty new watch face.
You get a digital, Google Fit-powered watch face that joins an existing traditional look. Each offer a color-coded circle to indicate how active you have been that day.
There’s also a new series of workout challenges. You can push yourself to do more push-ups, sit-ups, squats, or other painful activities. Each of the challenges put you on a 30-day course to ramp up the number of physical feats you can perform.
Why this matters: Google Fit is slowly growing into its own hub for all your health and workout data. While these additions are nice, its main strength is that other developers like Under Armour, Nike, and Adidas have integrated their platforms into Fit, so all your data can be stored in one place.
