Google Fit updated with calories, distance and other features

Google has updated its Google Fit app for Android today, adding in some new and handy details. As part of the latest release the app now estimates calories burned and distances traversed. To see the figures users need only enter height and weight into the app.


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.
