After five years of its first launch, Google has ultimately expanded its health-focused Fit app service to iOS-enabled devices. From today, users can download the app on their iPhones and iPads from the App Store. Google Fit is designed to keep track of your fitness \ activities and helps to lower the risk of heart disease. Furthermore, it improves sleep, and overall mental wellbeing. The app comes with two new activities- Move Minutes and Heart Points. These help users lead a healthy lifestyle.
The ‘Move Minutes’ feature will help to keep track of your movement. Furthermore, the Heart Points will help you get points for each minute of heavy activity. They include picking up the pace when walking your dog. Furthermore, it awards double points for more intense activities like running. All these shall help you reach the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Heart Association’s (AHA) suggested quota of physical activity. “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,” according to Google.
Users can also check their journal inside the Google Fit app. Moreover, they can keep track of their activities on daily activity goals.
