Google Fit Health App Takes on Apple's HealthKit

After Apple's success with the announced health-focused app, HealthKit, Google decided to compete with the tech giant and launch a brand new health service called the “Google Fit.” Google Fit is expected to be unveiled at the Google I/O Developer Conference, which will take place later this month. The health service will collect data from health-related apps and fitness trackers, Forbes reports.

 

Not much has been disclosed in terms of what will be discussed at I/O, but it is believed Google will announce partnerships with wearable device makers there. It is also uncertain whether Google Fit will be a built-in Android service, or a standalone app.

Google may include Google Fit in Android Wear, a Google Android mobile operating system exclusively designed for smartwatches. In March, Google said that in order to launch its Android-powered watches, the company has partnered with many hardware manufacturers.

 

Building these apps is a sensitive issue for both Apple and Google, as many privacy concerns arise around processing health data and giving feedback to users. Apple's HealthKit will track the user's data related to heart rate, blood pressure and many other health aspects, and let the trackers communicate with one another, so that they develop a more precise health image of the user.
