Google-Fit

Today, Google launched its new Google Fit Android app, which will be the search company’s direct Android answer to Apple’s new Health app. Mountain View’s new software can be paired with compatible mobile devices to track your fitness activities like walking, running and cycling. Sound familiar?

Additionally, Google Fit pulls info from third-party applications and displays data in charts and graphs to help you keep track of your progress and goals. If you somehow find yourself disconnected from your mobile device, your data is also accessible from your desktop as well. Like Health, Google Fit is in its early stages, but its clear that it will offer features that mirror Apple’s take on fitness.
