Google's fitness app, Google Fit has gained some new features and functionality in its latest update. Included in this update is instant insights, a way for you to quickly and easily see all the stats of your activity. This means you'll be able to see your route, elevation, speed, pace and much more. In addition, you'll be able to easily track your push ups, sit ups, and more. The full list of changes include:
- Instant insights. See real-time stats for your runs, walks and rides on your phone. Google Fit will record your speed, pace, route, elevation, and more so you can stay motivated and on track.
- Strength training. Want to add push-ups to your routine? If you have an Android Wear watch, you can start a daily challenge and your watch will automatically detect and count each sit-up, push-up, and squat. They'll be added to your daily activity, so you get credit for each one.
- The whole picture. Google Fit will now show you info from your favorite nutrition and sleep apps. Monitor your diet with MyFitnessPal, Fatsecret, Lifesum, or LoseIt. Or track your sleep with Sleep as Android, Xiaomi Mi Band and Mi Band 1S, Sony Smartband 2, or the Basis Peak.
The updated version of Google Fit will be rolling out across Google Play in the coming days.
