Additionally, Google Fit provides a new look to its historical data. Scrolling through the timeline you’ll find new groupings for days, weeks, and months. The idea is to see how your activities have changed over time.

Another new detail included the updated app is the inclusion of a home screen widget and Android Wear watch face. Both are designed for those who like to keep a close eye on their activities and provide at-a-glance info.
