    Google Fit - Fitness Tracking's review

    Published: 2014-10-29, by .

    A hub for all your health data that syncs with many fitness apps

    • Automatically tracks walking, biking, and running
    • Integration with popular fitness apps
    • Attractive progress charts and graphs
    • Links to your Google account
    • Can't add other kinds of activity
    • Wipes data from Android Wear devices

    "Google's foray into the health scene"

    Google Fit is Android's answer to Apple's HealthKit. Many popular fitness apps have already integrated with the app, like RunKeeper, Strava, and Withings - and more are poised to be added soon. Android Wear devices will also be synced with the app.

    So far, Fit displays information about walking, running, and cycling activity, which it can detect even if you don't link it with any related apps (you can manually add activity as well). Nifty graphs and charts help you keep track of your progress. Register using your existing Google account, and add information like height and weight.

    A couple early criticisms: there really ought to be options for manually adding other kinds of activities, since those who track their health are likely to engage in other forms of exercise as well. Also, a major caveat: the app wipes data clean on Android Wear devices. This will hopefully be fixed soon, but be aware that your step count will reset to zero.

    If you're also looking forward to seeing what's next in the fitness tracker world, Google Fit is definitely worth playing with.

    It tracks steps even when I am sitting idle. Highly inaccurate and unprecise.

    I find that it does not measure accurately steps.. . Often even erasing steps after they have been recorded... so disappointing.

    Inaccurate and unreliable when walking a "loop". One day I logged 8 miles in 2-hrs, next day, 1.7 miles in the same time, steps, place etc. Everyday I get a different outcome. Booooo!
