Google‘s Fitness and activity tracking app, the Google Fit, has received a major update. The app is capable of tracking steps and activity of a user. The new version of the Google Fit app carries the number 1.57. The update has brought some major changes to the app. The new version has undergone a major visual and functional overhaul.
The most noticeable change in the app is its visual appearance. The Google Fit app has gotten a major visual overhaul and it is now a lot more colorful than it was before the update. The other visual change is in the progress charts. The charts that display your progress towards your goal, stretch to fill the screen.
The background images in the app now also stretch from side to side this makes the app look more visually appealing.
The best change of all is that the new version of the app displays a lot more information on a single screen. The Previous versions of Google Fit almost displayed too little information on the screen leaving giant blank, unused spaces. For instance, Google Fit’s start screen now displays a quick summary of the total time of activity you performed during that day, the distance you covered, the steps you have taken, and the calories you have burned. The start screen also displays a hint of your daily circle activity completion for the whole week.
There is also new Timeline view in the navigation drawer, it shows you a history of all your activity that you can browse easily. The Goals have also gotten a major overhaul, previously the app only allowed you to set basic goals, but now they have been made a lot more configurable. Goals can now be set for different activities and specific periods of time. Now, you can even spread goals throughout the day for multiple times.
The Google Fit app’s look has also been updated on Android Wear. The previous bright white background has been replaced by black and now more text is fitted on the small display. There is also an easily-accessible floating button that you press to start an activity. You can download the Google Fit app on the Google Play Store.
