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.
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.
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.
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.
Updated review: The app changes data from the current day and previous days without any discernible pattern. It’ll tell me I had 92 heart points last Thursday, then it’ll say I had 141 heart points last Thursday, then later it might say 92 again. This is absurd. There’s no other app in my phone causing this confusion. It’s a glitch in this app. The sleep data is also no good. E.g., it tells me I slept from 2am till 8am and that this was a total duration of 11 hours. What? Similar problems with other days. Want to love the app. The simplicity is helpful. Design is very good. But data is off.

Get to a healthier and more active life with the new Google Fit!
It’s hard to know how much or what kind of activity you need to stay healthy. That’s why Google Fit worked with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Heart Association (AHA) to bring you two new activity goals that can help improve your health: Move Minutes and Heart Points
• Move Minutes: When it comes to your
health, it’s important to move more and sit less. Earn Move Minutes for all of your activity and get motivated to make small, healthier changes throughout your day, like taking the stairs instead of the elevator or catching up with a friend over a walk instead of a coffee.
• Heart Points: Activities that get your heart pumping harder have tremendous health benefits for your heart and mind. You’ll earn one Heart Point for each minute of moderate activity like picking up the pace when walking your dog, and double points for more intense activities like running. It takes just 30-minutes of brisk walking five days a week to reach the AHA and WHO’s recommended amount of physical activity shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, improve sleep, and increase overall mental wellbeing.
