Google Fit update brings real-time tracking, integration with sleep and diet monitoring apps
Arguably the best new feature introduced by the update is the ability to track runs, walks, and bike rides in real time. This means that the user will be presented with detailed information regarding the speed, the pace, the elevation, and the route for each of these activities.
Another new feature introduced with the latest Google Fit update caters to Android Wear users. Once your smartwatch gets the new update, it will be able to automatically detect push-ups, sit-ups, and squats. The corresponding stats will be added to the daily activity review, helping you reach your goals and providing more accurate tracking overall.
With the new update, Google is also furthering its ambitions to transform Google Fit into a fitness hub, nut just a tracking app. The new update also brings integration with nutrition and sleep apps. Google Fit will now bring direct diet monitoring via MyFitnessPal, Fatsecret, Loselt, or Lifesum, while the sleeping habits can be tracked via Sleep as Android, Xiaomi's Mi Band and Mi Band 1S, the Sony Smartband 2, or the Basis Peak.
