The Google Fit app snatched an update today, and it brings a couple of new, nifty features. Along with the usual helping of bug fixes, the update also contains support for manual entry of over 100 new activities and experimental step detection when your Android Wear watch is disconnected from a paired phone.
You can find Google's full, detailed change log below:
- Support for manual entry of over 100 new activities!
- Android Wear
- New, experimental step detection for walking when the watch is disconnected from the phone
- Bug fixes and performance improvements
As it currently stands, your smartwatch will stop counting steps when its paired smartphone dies or isn't within range, so the experimental step tracking feature is sure to be a welcome change.
You can check for the update by clicking through Google Play badge above. However, don't be alarmed if you don't see it right away, as Google is continuing its penchant for slow rollouts with this update.
