Google Fit is a health-tracking platform developed by Google for the Android operating system. It is a single set of APIs that blends data from multiple apps and devices. Google Fit uses sensors in a user’s mobile device or activity tracker to record physical fitness activities (such as walking or cycling), which are measured against the user’s fitness goals to provide a comprehensive view of their fitness. Confirmed partners include Nike, HTC, LG, Withings, Motorola, Noom, Runtastic, RunKeeper and Polar. Users will be able to choose who their fitness data is shared with and also delete this information at any time.
Google Fit is an open ecosystem that allows developers to upload fitness data to a central repository where users can access their data from different devices and apps in one location:
Fitness apps can store data from any wearable or sensor.
Fitness apps can access data created by any app.
User’s fitness data is persisted when they upgrade their fitness devices.
