This morning the folks at Google revealed the new Google Fit.

The new Google Fit app has been developed in collaboration with the World Health Organization and the American Heart Association, having been envisioned as the most intelligent consumer-ready fitness tracker to date.

"We're delighted to be working with Google Fit and others to harness the power of technology to maximise the impact of WHO's evidence-based recommendations for healthier living".

The new Google Fit has been redesigned to be centered around Move Minutes and Heart Points. Move Minutes are pretty self-explanatory: Any movements through the day will be tracked either by your phone or smartwatch. You can see more at the Google Fit site too. This will be easier to track if you have a smartwatch with a heart rate sensor, but if you don't Google will use a combination of accelerometer and (if available) Global Positioning System data to predict the intensity of your movements. Apple's three-ring design - which tracks and sets goals for daily movement, exercise and time spent standing - has made the pursuit of closing those rings an obsession for some Apple Watch fans. Each piece of activity during the day earns the user Move Minutes which are of course recorded in the Google Fit app.

To estimate the number of Heart Points, Google Fit automatically detects the activities you're carrying out using your phone or watch's sensors.

Any minute of moderate activity above normal walking speed will earn a Heart Point, and Google says you'll get double points for "more intense activities like running or kickboxing". You can also manually choose activities such as gardening, pilates, rowing, or spinning in the app. It takes 30 minutes of brisk walking 5 days a week to reach the AHA and WHO's recommended amount of physical activity which is shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, improve sleep, and increase overall mental well-being. Google has also redesigned its Google Fit app, the backbone of fitness tracking on Wear OS and on Android devices that aren't Samsung. The update will be rolling out to all devices - Android, iOS and Wear OS - this week.
