Throwing a direct challenge to Apple's 'Healthkit' app, Google has announced the launch of its new fitness app, 'Google Fit', for android devices.
Google said that the app allows users to monitor their health goals and workout stats. It can also monitor walking, running and cycling when used as a standalone health tracker, reported The Verge.
AdvertisementUsers can also set goals based on duration or the total number of steps involved and the app will keep one informed about the progress throughout each day. However, third-party fitness trackers and apps can also tap into Google's platform and input your health data.
You can also access your health profile on Google Fit via the web and on tablets.
The app is available free of cost and is rolling out right now.
