Google Fit receives distance tracking, history, a new widget and more in new update
If you’re a Google Fit user, you’ll be happy to know that the service is receiving quite the update today. Rolling out now in the Google Play Store, the update brings distance and calories burned tracking, fitness history, a new widget for your device’s home screen and an Android Wear watch face.
Google Fit will begin tracking your distance and calories burned after you update your profile to include your gender, height and weight. Just like many other fitness applications out there, Fit will now be able to tell you how far you’ve traveled and estimate how many calories you’ve burned throughout your day and during your workout.
Google Fit now also supports fitness history, which lets you look up your activities grouped together by days, weeks or months. You can access your history by simply scrolling down on your timeline. Last but not least, Google Fit is also getting a new widget and an Android Wear watch face, allowing you to more easily stay on top of your daily fitness goals.
