How do you best measure fitness and exercise? That’s an ongoing debate with no end in sight, but if you prefer to count steps and you’re a Google Fit user, you’ll be happy about the company’s latest redesign. Google Fit is rolling out a change to its look that shunts the Move Minutes goal to the side in favor of showing your step counter and Heart points.
Step counting is simple—set a goal and try to hit it. That may be why it’s more popular than other options like Move Minutes, Active Minutes, and similar terms with vague definitions.
With that in mind, Google is rolling out a redesign to Google Fit. It already hit iOS, and will soon arrive on Android and Wear OS. You’ll see bright and bold colors on a clean background. And it focuses on your step count and heart points. If you want more information, all you need to is swipe.
Move points aren’t going away, though; you’ll still have access to the measurement, which is good since step counting isn’t helpful for every exercise activity. But if you’re getting started and your focus is walking or running, the change might be welcome.
