Google Fit was announced last year and the service essentially just told users for how long they have been active. Now a new update to the app will give much more information, rivaling many activity trackers, directly from the user’s smartphone without having to buy an additional accessory.
With the update, Google Fit gets a step and distance calculator and the approximate number of calories burnt. In order to get this information, users will have to update their profile with weight, height and gender.
However, Google Fit is unlikely to be as accurate as a fitness band, which is wrapped around your wrist at all times, whereas a phone isn’t. But one more good thing about the update is that Google Fit now gets a watch face for Android Wear smartwatches.
