Google Fit is a health-tracking platform developed by Google for the Android operating system. It is a single set of APIs that blends data from multiple apps and devices. Google Fit uses sensors in a user's mobile device or activity tracker to record physical fitness activities (such as walking or cycling), which are measured against the user's fitness goals to provide a comprehensive view of their fitness. Confirmed partners include Nike, HTC, LG, Withings, Motorola, Noom, Runtastic, RunKeeper and Polar. Users will be able to choose who their fitness data is shared with and also delete this information at any time.
Google Fit was announced at the Google I/O conference on June 25, 2014, shortly after the release of Apple's iOS 8 HealthKit, which can be considered a direct competitor. The application was launched to the public on October 28, 2014, and is available to all Android users running 4.0 or above.
There are a number of apps integrated with Google Fit. Some examples are Nike Running, Strava, Polar Beat and Aqualert.
