    Google Fit, announced in June 2014 at Google I/O, is the all-encompassing fitness and health platform for Google. The user-facing interface is the Google Fit app, which brings together data picked up from your phone, Android Wear device or approved fitness tracker that has been designed to export to Fit.

    The Google Fit app isn't the flashiest, but considering its Google's first attempt at this sort of thing it does its job. It tracks all of your movements through whatever methods you give it, lets you set goals and track your activity over days, weeks and months.
