Great APP!
This app is intuitive and easy. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 only because I would love 1 additional feature… on the My Activity tab (I’m using an iPhone) looking at the full month view of both the Heart Points and Steps views, it would be nice to have the color of the circle change to a different color instead of just changing hues when you reach the goal for a day. Or even a check mark over the day like on the Week view. I still like the app and will continue to use it- it would just be nice to have a quick visual to see how many days during the month that I met the goal.

Thank You, Heart Disease Avengers
Excellent. Pure and good, period. This is a gift to us. Yet, some people have still complained: "Until it magically aligns with my Sparkle Pony Unicorn heartbeat ratio index, measures perspiration sodium levels (aligning with my home-based lab testing), and adds a drop-down choice for bi-weekly underwater hot Tai BocChi lacrosse sessions so I don't have to do so manually (THE HORROR), I'm giving it only half a star..." Seriously, folks. Get a problem. Like heart disease. Have it in your family? You must not. Most folks who DO have heart disease, know someone with heart disease, or lost someone they love very much to heart disease aren't complaining about something so positive in the fight against this beyond-crappy death monger. We are every-day thankful for the genius, hard working souls at the AMA and Google (and Apple - thanks for the app, yo!) who joined forces in the magical Google Fit to make the world a better, healthier place so we don't lose even more people we love to this horrific, extremely preventable disease. Thanks to every heart disease Avenger who is fighting for our lives. We are so fortunate to have you walking with us.

Impressed on Positive Heart Health, Not Impressed with Functionality
I was hoping this would bridge the gap between my WearOS powered fossil smartwatch and Apple Health so I could get more use out of the health data and the Google Fit functionality of the watch. Unfortunately no such features. The app has read only permissions with Apple Health so it only organizes data from that app into Google’s. It does not link with WearOS so data from the smartwatch does not go directly to Google Fit’s app so that is still a problem for me. I like that it puts the focus on heart health in a “weight watchers” kinda way— points instead of steps or calories to get a bigger picture view of how to improve overall health. But I’m not getting my progress counted from my smartwatch anyways. Overall, Google Fit just organizes information that already exists in a new way. I’m intrigued but probably won’t keep it.

Room for improvement
Works as a basic list. Needs ability to edit workouts after posting, option to remove step count tracking completely (I track workouts like HIIT, elliptical and strength training but I don’t worry about my steps), diversify and add ability to change metrics based on exercise type (eg resistance and incline for elliptical), add recovery activities (stretching, etc). Not all yoga is the same - yin is primarily recovery and other forms are much more intense - this should be reflected in exercise list or offer a metric within yoga to specify the type. Heart rate log is not useful as it is only one snapshot. Better to add ability to sync with heart rate apps when logging specific exercises and perhaps show how much exercise time is spent in different HR zones.

Works pretty well but has problems
I use this app to track my steps throughout the day. It seems to do a good job keeping track of my steps. I don’t have a watch or fitness tracker so I keep my phone in my hand while I’m walking. This seems to work well but my main problem is as I walk and keep a check on my number of steps, I notice at some point every day I loose heart points. I was up to seven heart points as I was walking to 2000 steps and as I looked to see what I had, my heart points dropped back from 7 to 3. This happens at some point every day. I would like to know why this happens. I don’t slow dawn my pace or change my stride or the way my arms swing as I walk so I don’t know why this happens. I would like an explanation as to why this happens every day during my walk.

Desyncs and becomes useless.
Fit worked great for nearly 3 weeks, and then it completely desyced from Health, losing roughly 2000 steps every walk. Threads about this get locked by Google claiming it’s Health’s fault, however their troubleshooting doesn’t work. It’s a pull issue with Fit and it gets confused. Refresh doesn’t work. Needs a manual sync option. Daily goals are meaningless if this doesn’t properly keep track of things. There are enough complaints about this to be a priority issue, but Google refuses to acknowledge it’s an issue with their app. Update: it still just inexplicably breaks. You need to uninstall and reinstall to get it to sync. It’s crazy how they will deflect this problem as an apple health problem when clearly it has something to do with fit just ignoring the data after a while.

Can’t Connect A Google Product to a Google App
Wanted to see what the Google fit app was like as someone on the Fitbit forum stated Google appeared to have bought Fitbit and took all the good features and put them in the Google app. For background, the fitbit app received an update that took away many great tracking features and enraged 1000s of customers. Apparently you can’t connect the Fitbit app or a Fitbit device to the Google fit app. Really absurd in my opinion, and settles my decision to get a Garmin tracker or watch that is 1/2 the price of whatever garbage watches Google is putting out these days. Looks like Google bought out yet another company, did nothing good with the tech they acquired or weren’t intelligent enough to do anything with it, and then trashed the app in an attempt to increase their market share.

Fills an important gap for Apple users
I am an iPhone/watch user and for me this app fills in important gap which is that it provides one number to evaluate the quality of daily exercise, i.e. the Heart Points. This is something which Apple health is missing as step counts, exercise minutes, etc. don’t do the job. So I’m excited about this! What is needed now is a widget and an Apple Watch app with a complication… It would be perfect to be able to see the heart points whenever you look at the watch. Add those features and I’ll go five stars.

Has something changed?
I love using Google Fit to track my workouts and check my health stats. I have been very happy with it syncing with my Watch Ultra but within the last several weeks I have noticed I am losing Heart Points after my workout. Today for instance when I left the gym and synced my data to the GF app I had 25 heart points. A bit later it now is reduced to 18 heart points?? I had been checking to see if the app needed an update and while it didn’t show as needing one when I searched for the app to leave this review it showed as needing to be updated. Hopefully this was the issue?

Very good app but could use some improvements
The app in question is a very strong reliable app it is free ( unlike some competitors ). links to your google account. and helps get you working out. Although it does have its problems I wish it could link up to your fit bit and I also wish it could have instructional daily workout videos. All the “problems” with the app aren’t necessarily problems but could add to it. To sum it up more people should know and use this app

It is a crappy APP.
Google = Microsoft 20 ago - Fat big dying dinosaur. This app is so crappy and it doesn’t provide the correct step count for my daily power walk. Today, I did more than 5100 steps already but only record 2800 steps. The same issue has been happening for the past 2 months. I do consider Google product inferior product which is not really for prime time. If Google has no interest to make a good product in Apple App Store, please just leave and don’t bloat the Apple eco system for this crappy software. pS. It ignores power walking , jogging, hiking and running step counts so you can only use it for walking but not other exercises.

I enjoy the google fit app. However, I wish I could edit a workout after I complete it. For instance, I used my watch to record my workout and accidentally chose walk instead of run and started it ten minutes into my run. I’m unable to fix this now that it’s entered and although I realize it’s my mistake for entering it wrong I feel like it’d be easy enough for them to make it so I can adjust the time I started and the type of workout it was so I could get more accurate feedback.

Definitely Needs Improvement
I track my steps daily with Google Fit and with Apple Health. When I am finished with walking I check my progress and at times both apps will match, but more and more Google Fit will show a certain number of steps but then will rollback and I will lose sometimes a few thousand steps. This is very frustrating to me and I do not know why this happens. I work hard in trying to get my A1C levels down but Google Fit isn’t working as efficiently as it should be for me.

I love Google Fit. Been using it for years.. but lately for the past two months. It has not been accurate on my miles. I use it for my mileage for machine exercises. However. When walking, it’s not giving me the right miles. I also use the apple tracker and the numbers from the GF is behind. This needs to be fixed. I also noticed that the numbers sometime retract back too.

Wish it was better!
I loved this app when I first started using it! It would track directly from my Apple Watch series 6 so I never forgot to enter a workout and I loved the weekly reports. Then, data started to just disappear from my workouts every day! I would earn 26 heart points with my Tai chi workout then thirty minutes later it would drop to 7! Or my Tuesday 26 points would be completely gone when I looked on Thursday!! Not just frustrating, it literally makes this app useless for any serious tracking. Very disappointing.

Love this App
I love this app. I wish I knew earlier about this app, my workout would have been more easier. Before I used to workout more or less and had no tack of it. But this app made it so easy to keep my record and tells me exactly how much I need to walk or run today. It makes me crave more everyday to workout more and more. So thankful for this app. Highly recommended

Doesn’t Sync to Apple Health
I use a Wear OS smartwatch (like it more than the Apple Watch) but Google Fit doesn’t have a way to sync data between itself and Apple Health. That means my watch is tracking steps, my phone is tracking steps, and if I forget one of them for an hour or two I don’t have a way to reconcile them together. Google can read from Apple Health but not write to it. To summarize: if you’re firmly in the Google ecosystem, Google Fit is great. If you’re split across the two (like me) or dipping a toe into Google, this app doesn’t do anything for you.

Allow period predictors
Apple health has a thing where if you track your period consistently, it can tell you a guesstimate of when your following 3 or 4 periods should begin. It’s a great tool when planning vacations or hoping a certain visitor isn’t making an appearance. Basically… do something similar to what they did and you have me 100% on board.

App not working
App seems to no longer have the ability to track a workout, only has the ability to add a workout after it’s done. I loved the track feature since I could keep an eye on my distance as I was running. Additionally, it seems like it no longer keeps track of my steps automatically. I have the most updated version, but nothing is being tracked. It always says 0 steps and 0 heart points even after a run.

Deducting steps and heart points
I am frustrated that Google Fit will alert me that I have reached my steps goal and my heart points and then the tracking ring would suddenly move backwards and deduct heart points and about 1,300-2,000 steps. I walk the same distance, same pace, and the same time duration but there are days that wouldn’t show that I’ve reached my goals. Sometimes, I would see that I have reached my steps and heart points goals for the week but would see some days with incomplete rings the following day.

Great app with bad bugs
This app hasn’t been updated in two months Google. What’s going on? I’m running into syncing issues with my WearOS watch now that I never had before. I love this app and use it every day, but the lack of continuity between watch and phone has become increasingly frustrated. My phone is still two workouts behind my watch and I did those workouts earlier this week. Please fix this issue, it is incredibly frustrating as a user.

Terrible substitute for Fit Bit
Absolutely useless. Replaced my old FitBit with a new smart watch that uses WearOS and Google Fit to track activity. I love the watch, but I HATE HATE HATE this app. FitBit offers SO many more things than this one does, nutrition tracking and period tracking among them. And often my watch won’t track my steps or other activity despite the fact that I have it synced with my phone. So I’m reduced to using my watch as a really high-end timepiece instead of the stuff it’s actually intended for, and using my FitBit for actual health tracking.

Please bring back tracking
Hello, I love the Google Fit app, but there was a change I didn’t like. Now users can only log a workout after you’re done. It would be great if we could have the track while you workout option back especially for short periods like doing jumping jacks or push-ups.

Clunky and impossible to personalize
I want to track my blood pressure, but you have to click through several screens and search for the tracker every time. Also, there isn’t an option to change my gender in settings, so when I hit the “+” it prompts me to track my period; I’m a male. My google profile says male, but I guess it doesn’t pull data from our google profile, which seems dumb. The “+” on the main screen needs to have a settings editor to what I want to track or do. Basic stuff.

App won’t sync with Google Fit on Watch
The whole point of having an app on the phone is that you can track what you’ve been using on your personal fitness device (smart watch, heart rate monitor). For over a week now the app on the phone will not record my workouts that I’ve started from the watch and thusly isn’t syncing the data from watch to phone. Idk what the problem is but it needs to be fixed. First time anything like this has happened on a google device for me

Good but needs improvement
Overall a good app. A good way to keep track of your workouts. I have this app synced with the exercise app "fiton" and it does not always record my workouts accurately. For example, for some workouts, Google fit says I've only done 1 minute of exercise, when in fact it was 30 minutes! Good app overall but it's not always accurate.

Deleted it at set up
Poorly done app. Opened it up one my iPad and it was small with poor graphics. Looks like maybe the first app ever designed. Gives two choices at start up, to track steps or track heart points. I am doing neither, I am trying to track actual workouts, and calories burns. Did not give it much of a chance beyond this since there are so many activity trackers out there that are better designed. Had better hopes for this having the Google name

Generally a good app
I would like to say it’s helped me become more aware of how physically active I am, I would love for it to track my heart points better though. I ran about 3 miles and it didn’t record any of my running, it’s a minor problem but still frustrating trying to track my progress.

Move Points > Steps.
I really liked the app before this new update where the move points were switched with steps. I don’t have the luxury to walk around a lot . At most, I get about 2,000 steps a day. I found it more motivating to log my move points, because it counted for any work out I did. I think steps and move points to be an option and let the user pick which one works best for their fitness lifestyle.

Take away this feature
Seriously I would use this if developers take away the move minutes. I shouldn’t have to add 15-20 minutes to my exercise just to get the right calorie count. When I put in I have been doing XYZ exercise for 45-60 minutes, I have been moving those entire minutes. It’s entirely discouraging to have my workout dialed back from what I know it was and makes the app unreliable to use.

Eventually it stops responding, especially on my watch
Works for a while flawlessly, then the heart monitor will start to not respond , after getting that to work , later on the workout feature starts to give a similar message… cannot start xxxxx and my only option is to reset… eventually it gets redundant… so it’s a useless app for me , as I’ve installed it after updates thinking those issues will resolve … oh well… when it works , it works nicely …

Generic note for the day? Journal could inc diary notes
I was hoping when I click the + in an activity I can notate anything that I want and such as medication or how I’m feeling that day. It looks like it’s attached to an activity in terms of expelling energy. Would love to see a generic note/diary addition to this app. Super easy to do!!!

Ok I guess
Only successfully measures my heart rate about half the time, if I’m being generous. I also don’t like that I can’t edit workouts after entering them, and that I can’t choose to not have a steps goal since steps aren’t what I’m into fitness-wise. Overall it’s ok for tracking workouts and I like when the heart rate monitor works, but I’d like more options and consistency.

Cannot write to Apple Health
It’s inconvenient for iOS users to have to use both Google fit and Apple health. Users should be able to consolidate into a single source. Allow option to write sleep data to Apple health please. Not only read data from Apple health into Google fit… especially with your upcoming subscription fee for sleep.

Importing data from Apple Health is incomplete
Sleep time data won’t import to Fit from Apple Health unless you manually logged the time (sleep schedule logs it automatically and it’s the useful data). Steps data, on the other hand, is different from Apple Health. I don’t want to lose all the data registered in Apple Health so, until we can import all the data reliably from Apple Health, I cannot migrate to this app.

What about people taking beta blockers?
I’m taking a beta blocker to treat afib and my resting pulse is about 20 bpm lower than it was before I started. Exercise for me doesn’t hit a level high enough to trigger “exercise” on the Apple Watch or heart points here. Please consider asking users during setup if they are taking beta blockers and adjusting the threshold down a bit for earning heart points for us who are. Thanks.

For me it is the same. I wish that they would make it so I could edit my journal entries in the app. I don’t have my problem so far in regards to tracking time, HR, or with the activity itself.

Disappointing results
I about died mowing the lawn in the Texas summer. It took me about an hour in the 95* heat that feels like 107*. I wore my Fossil smart watch that’s supposed to pair with this app. My phone told me I took about 500 steps while my watch told me I only took about 1000 steps. Another app usually tells me I walk about 3500 steps. My heart rate went up to 145bpm and I scored no heart points. Yup. Disappointing

Where’s the “Track workout” option? “Add activity” just isn’t accurate or detailed enough, it’s basically just an estimate unless you have some type of other device tracking the calories for you. And I just noticed that it’s not even accurate in tracking my miles. Every morning I walk my dog and then go on a 3 mile walk, google fit only read 1.69 of those miles today. My calorie counter is all off now.
