Google announced that Google Fit, its fitness tracking app that first launched on Android back in 2014, is now available on iOS.
Google took its time. That is the least we can say. But five years after it launched its fitness tracking app on Android, Google Fit is finally available on iOS. The app comes to fill a massive gap left behind when Facebook decided to shut dow Move in 2018.
Google Fit focuses on Move Minutes and Her Points. And the app can automatically pick up different activities based on your activity. Much like Health – the built in iPhone app – Google Fit can connect with other health and fitness apps such as Nike Run Club or Headspace. It actually even draws much of its data from the Health app itself. And all this, without having to connect an Apple Watch or any wearable (where as before you had to use Wear OS to achieve pretty much the same results.)
Given that Apple Heath already tracks your movement data, Google Fit will need to focus on its ability to pick up automatically on a user’s activity to really differentiate itself and win over iOS users. Move used to do it, but now it’s gone. Can Google Fit fill in the gap?
