Google Fit update brings home screen widgets and other improvements

Google Fit updated with breathing exercises and home screen widgets

Users can now add Fit widgets to the home screen for quick access to their Heart Points, Move Minutes and other daily stats.

Google lists two main things as new: Home screen widgets and a breathing coach. A second widget is able to show detailed data such as steps taken, calories burned and miles traveled.

Lastly, a new Wear OS feature will walk you through a breathing exercise if you're feeling in need of a relaxing little break from whatever you're doing.

Google Fit received its last big update in August, when it was redesigned to follow Google's Material Design style and altered to focus on heart rate rather than duration of exercise. You'll also now get the option to edit the activity intensity manually so you can be sure you're gaining the right amount of points for the effort you're putting in.

According to Google, these updates will be rolled out to Android phones and Wear OS smartwatches this week, so keep your eyes peeled for a new update if you have Google Fit app installed on your device. Google says this feature will allow Fit to more accurate award Heart Points. With the app's improved activity logging and streamlined usage, you can start healthy habits ahead of the New Year's resolution trend. How do you find the app in terms of helping you meet your fitness goals?

All Fit users on Wear OS and Android should see this update this week.
