Google Fit Gets New Features on Android, Wear OS

Google Fit Gets New Features on Android, Wear OS”

Lastly, a new Wear OS feature will walk you through a breathing exercise if you're feeling in need of a relaxing little break from whatever you're doing.

Additionally, Google Fit will make it easier to check on your progress with a glance.

For those who manually add in activities to Google Fit, you'll be able to now add how intense a workout was to be eligible to accrue Heart Points for it.

The new features follow a pretty radical makeover of Google Fit, which in the past has been a bit of mix bag as far as tracking your health and fitness. So you can view your Heart Points, Move Points and additional activity tracking metrics without having to launch the app or checking in on your notification tray.

Also, when you open the app, Fit now features your last workout on the home screen.

There is also a new feature coming to Google Fit users on Wear OS, the operating system for wearable devices such as smartwatches.

Notably, the octagon and the pill-shaped element are two different widgets, but as you can see in the image, they complement each other and can easily be used as one on the same page.

All Fit users on Wear OS and Android should see this update this week. That's great timing, because many folks use the new year to make a resolution to get in better shape, and these new Google Fit features can help with that.
