Google Fit users, it's time to get off your butts and update the activity-tracking app. Version 1.52 has rolled into the Play Store, and it's ready to hit the gym with a new set of clothes and one of those fancy wristbands.
For starters, Fit can now track distances and calories. Fire up the app to see how far you've gone and how much you've burned in the process. Google has tweaked the look a bit, and you can now group your fitness history by days, weeks, and months.
But staying active is more about the present than the past. To keep you motivated, Google has created a widget that you can slap on the homescreen as a constant reminder of your activity (or lack thereof). It has also come up with an Android Wear watch face that has the same effect.
Google was nice enough to announce what's new this time around, so you can check out its blog post for more details.
You're free to wait for the update to arrive on its own, but we know you're ready to get moving. Hit up the link below on your way to your running shoes, and let us know if you spot any other changes while you're out.
The APK is signed by Google and upgrades your existing app. The cryptographic signature guarantees that the file is safe to install and was not tampered with in any way. Rather than wait for Google to push this download to your devices, which can take days, download and install it just like any other APK.
