Google Fit allows users to track their daily activity and was overhauled last year for Android users. As of this morning, Google Fit has made its way to iOS. The app also works with Wear OS by Google.

According to Google, the app will track your Move Minutes and Heart Points, essentially tracking your daily steps, workouts and sleep and overall activity.

Google Fit will use data from apps you’ve connected to your Apple Watch, including the likes of “Sleep Cycle, Nike Run Club and Headspace”, on top of your activity data from your Apple wearable.

After you install Google Fit for the first time, you’ll need to sign in with a Google Account, or if you’re already signed in, you’ll see your main account listed. Next, you’ll be asked for permission for Google Fit to access your activity data, which you can pick and choose.

“Tracking your progress throughout the day should be simple and easy. Regardless of which apps or devices you use to monitor fitness, sleep and general wellbeing, Google Fit has you covered,” explains the company. There are two rings to close within Google Fit, similar to closing rings on an Apple Watch.

The World Health Organization (WHO) says 30-minutes of brisk walking five days a week is the recommended amount of physical activity needed, to reduce the risk of heart disease, get better sleep and improve your overall well-being.

Google says “With your journal, you’ll get a snapshot of the things that you do to help you get better sleep, be more mindful and get more active.”
