You can now track activity with Google Fit on iOS and the Apple Watch

Enrique, 24 April 2019

Starting today, you can download the Google Fit app on the iOS app store to use on an iPhone. You’ll be able to track fitness using Google’s ‘Move Minutes’ and ‘Heart Points’ metrics. These metrics make it easy to understand how much activity you are getting throughout the day and you earn ‘heart points’ based on the intensity of activity.

In addition to tracking activity with the Google Fit app, It will also integrate with the Apple Health app so you’ll be able to earn Heart Points by simply logging workouts and activities on your Apple Watch so there’s no separate Google Fit app for the Apple Watch to have to mess with.

Google Fit offers a nice timeline of all the activity throughout the day called ‘Journal’, and it will even show you when you performed the Apple Watch’s guided breathing exercises. The Journal also shows how many Heart Points were earned for that activity. Google Fit also integrated with a lot of other fitness apps like Nike Run Club, My Fitness Pal, Strava, Endomondo, and Calm.
