Google adds a new health hub and sleep tracking metrics to its Fit mobile apps

Google has announced an update to its Fit Mobile app that will introduce a new centralized home screen of health information and more sleep tracking data. Updates for both Android and iOS versions of Google Fit will begin this week. Google is also adding new tiles to its Wear OS smartwatch app for workouts, weather and breathing exercises.

The new features are in line with the most recent Google Fit redesign launched last year. But the new home screen brings some key data points such as weekly goals, recent workouts, and health information such as heart rate and weight trends more front and center. For sleep tracking, Google says that Wear OS devices and compatible smart home accessories such as the Fosil Gen 5E, Asa Ring, and With Sleep Tracking Mats can now sync data with the Fit app to track night activity and sleep stage , While the Sleep Tracking feature now lets you set goals for bedtime.

Google says that you will also be able to send statistics, routes and photos from your Google Fit Workout Journal entries via social media or messaging apps. And the redesigned Wear OS tiles will make it easier to check the weather, start and stop guided breathing sessions, and recent launches via shortcuts.
