Get fit and healthy with Google Fit

Published: Oct 5, 2021

Google Fit is a great tool to set tangible goals and track your progress. Let’s find out how the app can help you hit your #healthgoals.

#1 Set goals

Start by setting goals—how many minutes of activity per day (Move Minutes), and how intense (Heart Points)—and enter details like weight and height if you wish.

What are Move Minutes?

  • Move Minutes tell you how much time you spend moving daily.

  • This includes all physical activity, e.g. walking, climbing stairs, swimming, yoga…

What are Heart Points?

  • Earn Heart Points when you do activities at a higher intensity—those that get your heart pumping faster and harder.

  • You get one Heart Point per minute of moderately intense activity like brisk walking and double the points for more intense activities like running.

#2 Monitor progress

The app uses your phone’s sensors to track progress, for example, steps per day. You can also manually add workouts.

#3 Adjust goals

Google Fit will recommend adjustments based on your activity levels; it might nudge you to aim for more Move Minutes if you’ve been hitting them regularly.

#4 Sync devices

If you’ve got other smart devices (e.g. Fitbit, Apple Watch), you can sync data to Google Fit for more accurate tracking.

#5 Connect apps

Share data with other health apps such as MyFitnessPal and Nike Run Club. Generally, you can connect to Google Fit via Settings (within the various apps).
