Google Fit gets a new interface on Android and iOS, new Tiles for Wear OS

Google today announced some improvements that are rolling out to Google Fit on Android and iOS, as well as some improvements for Wear OS smartwatches. Starting with the smartphone apps, Google has revamped the UI to now show more information by just scrolling down the main page, including sleep information, daily goals, recent workouts, and more.

On the topic of sleep, Google Fit can now display more information about the user's sleeping habits. It includes the number of hours they've slept, how much time they were in each state of sleep, their heart rate while asleep, and whether they're following their sleep schedule.

For workouts, Google is also making it possible to share workout routes and stats with friends on social media or through messaging apps. Photos from the route can also be attached to the records before sharing.

Over on Wear OS, Google has introduced three new Tiles, one of which is for Google Fit workouts. This lets users set quick shortcuts to start specific workouts on their Wear OS smartwatch, which is similar in concept to the workouts widget on Samsung's Tizen platform. Another new Tile offers guided breathing sessions, helping users calm down and relax.

Finally, Wear OS is also getting a redesigned weather experience with a "bolder design", which should be easier to look at. It also includes some more relevant forecast information, like precipitation and weather alerts. These features are rolling out now and may not be available to everyone right away.
