Google Fit Launched on iPhone With Apple Health and Apple Watch Integration

After nearly four years of its debut on Android, and following a significant redesign last year, Google Fit is now available on iOS devices as well.

The fitness tracking app Google tracks workout sessions completed with both an Apple Watch or a Wear OS smartwatch. It also integrates movement data from apps connected to Apple Health like Sleep Cycle, Nike Run Club, and Headspace.

Google Fit keeps the users motivated with Move Minutes and Heart Points based on World Health Organization and American Heart Association for weekly physical activity. The more one moves, the more are the Move Minutes earned. The more intensely one moves, the more Heart Points are earned.

A journal feature lets the users track their activities and progress towards weekly Move Minutes and Heart Points goals.

Before this, some Google Fit data was already available on iOS through the Wear OS app but owning a Wear OS smartwatch was a requirement. Now with full Apple Health and Apple Watch integration, the standalone Google Fit app is a far better solution.

Google Fit is available for free on the App Store.
