Google Fit is a great app that is helping users live an active life and stay healthy at the same time. This is why the developers of Google Fit have worked closely with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Heart Association (AHA) in order to bring activity goals and enhanced features that are going to improve the health of users. Now, Google Fit’s performances have been taken to the next level because a brand-new update is making it possible for the app to track the sleep pattern of users.
Google Fit Update
If you enjoy Google Fit, then you should be pleased to find out that a brand-new update has just arrived. This is a major update that introduces a new feature which makes it possible for Google Fit to track the sleep patterns from apps that share their data and thus, make it easier for users to get a sense of how well they sleep.
The cool thing about Google Fit’s new sleep tracking feature is that it also lets users add or edit their sleep history when companion apps are not providing accurate information. To top it all off, the developers of Google Fit have also decided to introduce a new dark theme that makes the app easier to use during night time.
Android and iOS Release
The last thing that we want to mention about Google Fit’s new update is that it’s not exclusive to people who use Android-powered smartphones and instead, the developers are rolling it out via official OTA (over the air) channels to both Android and iOS users.
Now that we have presented Google Fit’s latest update, let’s go ahead and check out which are the best features that this fitness-oriented app has to offer.
- Move Minutes
When it comes to your health, it’s important to move more and sit less. Earn Move Minutes for all of your activity and get motivated to make small, healthier changes throughout your day, like taking the stairs instead of the elevator, or catching up with a friend over a walk instead of a coffee.
• Heart Points
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, which is shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, improve sleep, and increase overall mental well-being.
