Getting Fit with Google
Google is going to get you fit this fall with their new features for Google Fit. The popular fitness app now offers “Move Minutes” and “Heart Points” to help get users excited about fitness.
Move Minutes encourages you to add little bits of exercise to your daily routine. These movements can be as simple as taking the stairs instead of the elevator or doing 15 minutes of yoga in the morning. You can even set goals for your daily Move Minutes.
Heart Points encourages you to get your heart pumping while you exercise. You earn a point for every minute of a brisk activity such as power walking. If you do intense workouts such as kickboxing or Zumba, you earn double points.
Google worked with The American Heart Association and the World Health Organization to develop the new features. They are designed to encourage users to live a healthy and active lifestyle.
Android phones and smartwatches that run Google Wear OS can download the Google Fit app and start earning points today. Move Minutes and Heart Points both use sensors in your phone or smartwatch to detect your activity throughout the day.
