Today, Google officially released the Google Fit app which turns your Android device into a fitness tracker.

According the the Android Official Blog,

Google Fit uses sensors already built in to your Android phone to automatically detect walking, biking and running. And you can set and monitor your fitness goals based on your activity levels. It’s a great tool to discover how active you are and check in on your progress as you work on your fitness goals. In fact, you can check in just about anywhere, including your phone, the web, tablet and Android Wear devices.

Download the app, link it to your Google account, and BOOM; instant fitness tracker with real-time monitoring. You can then use any device, including the web, to look at your fitness data.

Google Fit also links up to your other fitness apps/devices. So, you can wear your fitness band while working out and your Android Wear smartwatch the rest of the time, and still have all your fitness data in one place.

What do you think? Are you ready for Google to own another set of your personal data?
