The app available on the Play Store officially launches the fitness tracking platform that will have to deal with Apple Healthkit and Microsoft Healthvault
Google Fit, Mountain View's answer to Apple and Microsoft's fitness tracking platforms, has finally got its own app. Fit announced in June during the Google I / O developers' conference, a sort of control tower dedicated to health that, to monitor your daily activities, draws deeply from the data collected by the sensors of the smartphone and Android Wear smartwatches, sharing them with all third-party apps and services that request it. Partnerships with Nike, Adidas, RunKeeper and others have already been announced, which in turn will help by linking their database with the Google hub.
The information also flows into the personal profile of the user linked to his Gmail account, and will be available on any browser thanks to the website dedicated to the initiative. The latter is still not online, but the Google Fit app is already available on Google Play for all devices running Android 4.0 and later.
