According to a new exclusive from Forbes, Google is working on preparing a service called Google Fit. Forbes says the service will aggregate and manage health and fitness data collected from sources like wearables and fitness trackers, and it will offer new APIs to developers for integration with the service.
According to Forbes, it's unclear whether Google's HealthKit competitor will debut with the next version of Android, but evidently the company is set to unveil the service, along with new partnerships with wearable manufacturers, at this year's I/O conference (which for those keeping count is just under two weeks away).
The post cites Google Health, a previous attempt at delivering personal health data, as an example of how tough it is to navigate the space of fitness tracking while giving users valuable and meaningful information based on their data.
We have independently received information indicating that Google is working on a new fitness service, so we will revisit this topic again soon. In the meantime, check out Forbes' full report below.
