How to Use Your Google Fit Data
Whether you choose the Apple Watch or Fitbit, or the Wear smartwatch (formerly Android Wear), you’ve selected a good product — but your choice depends on what you hope to get out of this technology. Another way to stay on top of your fitness goals is to join the Google Fit ecosystem, pairing your smartphone or Wear smartwatch with Google Fit.
Google uses advanced sensors in your smartwatch and smartphone to figure out when you’re walking, jogging, running and more. Google Fit is supported by loads of third-party apps and devices so you don’t need to run out and buy a new Wear watch. Third-party apps include Nike+ Run Club, Calm, and Map My Fitness.
You can also map your workouts, pulling data from any wearables. It’s also possible to manually enter activities to keep a journal of your workouts. The Google Fit app widget on your phone home screen makes it easy to track your Move Minutes and Heart Points without having to go into the app. This feature of Google Fit is Android-only as Apple doesn’t support widgets.
Google Fit worked with the World Health Organization (WHO) to develop activity goals based on WHO’s recommendations for physical health. This is where Move Minutes and Heart Points come from. With Heart Points, you earn one point for every minute of moderate-intensity exercise. Google is all about data and Google Fit is no different; it pulls together data from several sources into one easy to understand dashboard.
