How does it Work?


Get to a healthier and more active life with Google Fit! It’s hard to know how much or what kind of activity you need to stay healthy. That’s why Google Fit collaborated with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Heart Association (AHA) to bring you Heart Points, an activity goal that can help improve your health. Activities that get your heart pumping harder have tremendous health benefits for your heart and mind. You’ll earn one Heart Point for each minute of moderate activity like picking up the pace when walking your dog, and double points for more intense activities like running. It takes just 30-minutes of brisk walking five days a week to reach the AHA and WHO’s recommended amount of physical activity shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, improve sleep, and increase overall mental wellbeing. Google Fit will also help you: SEE YOUR WORKOUTS Get insights and see stats such as heart rate, speed, pace, route, and more for your runs, walks, and bike rides. MONITOR YOUR GOALS See your daily progress on your Heart Points and steps. Meeting your goals all the time? Easily adjust your goals to keep challenging yourself to achieve a healthy heart and mind. MAKE EVERY MOVE COUNT All physical activity can help you lead a healthier life, and with Google Fit you can track it all in one place. Working with your favorite fitness apps and devices, Google Fit builds a journal of your activity. And to make sure Fit never misses a workout, you can manually add any activity your other apps didn’t track - from Aerobics to Zumba! CONNECT WITH YOUR FAVORITE APPS AND DEVICES Google Fit can show you info from many of your favorite apps and devices that are compatible with Apple Health to give you a holistic view of your health, so you’ll never lose track of your progress. These include Lifesum, Runkeeper, Strava, MyFitnessPal, Headspace, and more. CHECK IN AT ANYTIME, FROM ANYWHERE See a snapshot of your activity history across Google Fit and your integrated apps in your journal.

  • Impressed on Positive Heart Health, Not Impressed with Functionality


    By kiera113
    I was hoping this would bridge the gap between my WearOS powered fossil smartwatch and Apple Health so I could get more use out of the health data and the Google Fit functionality of the watch. Unfortunately no such features. The app has read only permissions with Apple Health so it only organizes data from that app into Google’s. It does not link with WearOS so data from the smartwatch does not go directly to Google Fit’s app so that is still a problem for me. I like that it puts the focus on heart health in a “weight watchers” kinda way— points instead of steps or calories to get a bigger picture view of how to improve overall health. But I’m not getting my progress counted from my smartwatch anyways. Overall, Google Fit just organizes information that already exists in a new way. I’m intrigued but probably won’t keep it.
  • Fills an important gap for Apple users


    By sgmiller
    I am an iPhone/watch user and for me this app fills in important gap which is that it provides one number to evaluate the quality of daily exercise, i.e. the Heart Points. This is something which Apple health is missing as step counts, exercise minutes, etc. don’t do the job. So I’m excited about this! What is needed now is a widget and an Apple Watch app with a complication… It would be perfect to be able to see the heart points whenever you look at the watch. Add those features and I’ll go five stars.
  • App won’t sync with Google Fit on Watch


    By skoFalcs
    The whole point of having an app on the phone is that you can track what you’ve been using on your personal fitness device (smart watch, heart rate monitor). For over a week now the app on the phone will not record my workouts that I’ve started from the watch and thusly isn’t syncing the data from watch to phone. Idk what the problem is but it needs to be fixed. First time anything like this has happened on a google device for me
  • Terrible substitute for Fit Bit


    By LowBatteryWarning
    Absolutely useless. Replaced my old FitBit with a new smart watch that uses WearOS and Google Fit to track activity. I love the watch, but I HATE HATE HATE this app. FitBit offers SO many more things than this one does, nutrition tracking and period tracking among them. And often my watch won’t track my steps or other activity despite the fact that I have it synced with my phone. So I’m reduced to using my watch as a really high-end timepiece instead of the stuff it’s actually intended for, and using my FitBit for actual health tracking.
  • Move Points > Steps.


    By Dibabee
    I really liked the app before this new update where the move points were switched with steps. I don’t have the luxury to walk around a lot . At most, I get about 2,000 steps a day. I found it more motivating to log my move points, because it counted for any work out I did. I think steps and move points to be an option and let the user pick which one works best for their fitness lifestyle.
  • Google Fit rewards

  • What about people taking beta blockers?


    By Toggled
    I’m taking a beta blocker to treat afib and my resting pulse is about 20 bpm lower than it was before I started. Exercise for me doesn’t hit a level high enough to trigger “exercise” on the Apple Watch or heart points here. Please consider asking users during setup if they are taking beta blockers and adjusting the threshold down a bit for earning heart points for us who are. Thanks.
  • Doesn’t work very well


    By agibz
    I have walked the same park for the first two days. Each day it gives me different readings. I walked to the post office yesterday and it didn’t register any steps for the first three blocks. I’m doing this for work. I’m not an avid walker. After the work program ends I won’t continue using this app. I won’t recommend it either.
  • Not as good as androids version


    By DesiV954
    Where’s the “Track workout” option? “Add activity” just isn’t accurate or detailed enough, it’s basically just an estimate unless you have some type of other device tracking the calories for you. And I just noticed that it’s not even accurate in tracking my miles. Every morning I walk my dog and then go on a 3 mile walk, google fit only read 1.69 of those miles today. My calorie counter is all off now.
  • Great Improvements


    By RmLJr
    Google has slowly made many improvements over the life of this app. Now that Google Fit runs on iOS, I find the “Journal” to be very useful in collecting all workout and sleep data from multiple sources and grouping the data chronologically for easier access.
