Google wants to help its users become more health conscious through exercise. That’s why the company has introduced its Google Fit app to a wider audience, this time bringing it to iOS devices. Launched last year, Google Fit’s mission stands to help change lives for the better, helping more and more people become active, get better sleep, and improve their mental health.
The app essentially keeps track of two goals: Move Minutes and Heart Points. Move Minutes logs your daily movement through walking or other motion activities. Heart Points can be earned through more intense movement from activities such as biking, running, and hiking.
The app keeps in mind the American Heart Association and World Health Organization’s weekly recommendations on exercise which consists of 150 minutes – or 2.5 hours – of “moderately intense” physical activity or 75 minutes of “vigorous aerobic activity”.
Google Fit can be paired to function with the Apple Watch and works with Apple Health as well. The application is now available in the App Store.
