Google Fit Comes to iOS

Google has ported its Google Fit app to iOS, making the health and fitness tracker available to iPhone users.

“When we launched the new Google Fit last year, we translated the science behind physical activity into two simple and smart activity goals: Move Minutes and Heart Points,” Google’s Defne Gurel explains. “Now, we’re bringing the Google Fit app to more people—starting today, it’s available to download on iOS.”

Google Fit works like other health and fitness trackers, of course, and it provides gamification-like incentives for being more active, virtual coaching sessions, and activity goals.

On iOS specifically, Google Fit connects with Apple Health, so you can access data from compatible apps and services. And it works with Apple Watch, of course, or a Wear OS-based smartwatch, so that you can track data without needing a phone with you at all times.

Google Fit is available from the Apple App Store.
