Google is revamping its fitness platform ahead of a potential smartwatch push this fall.
Google has announced that it is working with the World Health Organization (WHO) and American Heart Association (AHA) to bring a new new Google Fit experience to the fore.
That example comes from Margaret Hollendoner, Head of Product, Google Fit. With the new Fit, Google is focusing on two primary areas: Move Minutes and Heart Points.
Move Minutes stimulates you to sit less and move more on various occasions throughout the day.
As for functional changes, Google Fit will no longer pester you for getting X amount of steps, stairs, miles, etc. tracked during the day.

Eagles' boss Roy Hodgson handed Max Meyer his debut on 83 minutes, hoping the German could create something for the hosts.
For easily identified activities like walking or biking, Google says Fit can automatically track your activity. The ring system looks a lot like Apple's activity tracking, but in addition to tracking normal movement and more vigorous workouts, Apple has a third ring that tracks standing.
In the new version that's rolling out this week-I'm not seeing it yet on either of my Android phones-Google Fit picks up a nice design refresh that includes a vastly-improved logo. Users will attain Move Minutes and Heart Points. Heart Points are earned by activities that get your heart pumping harder. Or if you do more intense workouts like playing basketball or kickboxing, you'll earn double points. "It takes just 30 minutes of brisk walking 5 days a week to reach the AHA and WHO's recommended amount of physical activity, which is shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, improve sleep, and increase overall mental well-being", said Hollendoner. You can also manually choose activities such as gardening, pilates, rowing, or spinning in the app. Google Fit also works with other fitness apps like Strava, Runkeeper, Endomondo and MyFitnessPal.
Fit will be available for all Android devices and any watch that has Google's Wear OS, such as those from Fossil, LG and Huawei.
