Start your life healthier and more active with the new Google Fit!
It’s hard to say how much or what type of activity you need to stay healthy. That’s why Google Fit has partnered with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Heart Association (AHA) to give you cardio points, an activity goal that helps improve your health.
Activities that get your heart racing have huge health benefits for your heart and mind. For every moderate activity, such as walking, you’ll earn one cardio point. For example, speed up while walking the dog, and double your points for high-intensity activities like running. Just 30 minutes of brisk walking 5 days a week to get the AHA and WHO recommended amount of physical activity has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, improve sleep and increase overall mental health.
Google Fit can also help you:
Track your workouts from your phone or watch
Get instant insight while exercising and see real-time stats for running, walking and cycling. Fit uses your Android phone’s sensors or Wear OS by Google smartwatch’s heart rate sensor to record your speed, pace, route, and more.
monitor your goals
See your daily progress towards your Cardio Score and step goals. Are you consistently achieving your goals? Easily customize your goals, challenge yourself, and achieve a healthy mind.
Make your exercise count
If you walk, run or bike all day, your Android phone or Wear OS by Google smartwatch will automatically recognize your activity and add it to your Google Fit journal to ensure you earn points for every step you take. Do you want extra credit? Start with a walking workout and walk to the beat to increase your walking speed. Want a different workout? Choose it from a list of activities like Pilates, rowing, or spinning, and Google Fit will keep track of all the cardio points you’ve accumulated.
