After Apple, Google too is reportedly working on its health service which could be called Google Fit. The service will be able to collect and aggregate data from well-known fitness tracking devices and health-related apps, just like Apple s HealthKit which was announced last week at WWDC. Forbes has reported that Google plans to launch this service at the Google I/O conference for developers, which begins on June 25.

Reportedly, Google is trying to create an ecosystem for its service, in which the Fit will allow fitness based wearable devices or a heart rate monitor will be able to interface with Google s cloud-based services. Google will aggregate data through open APIs, and is likely to announce partnerships with wearable device makers at the conference itself. Google has scheduled a session on wearable computing with Google on the first day, where it might just announce its health-related service.

There is no clarity on whether the Google Fit service will be a part of the next version of Android, or will be launched at a standalone app for Android devices. Google might as well launch it with Android Wear, which is its operating system built for smart watches and other wearable devices.
