Google Fit is now available on iOS

As far as mobile devices go, the Google Fit service has long been available exclusively for Android and Wear OS, though until recently you could also access your data from a web browser. Today, though, the search giant is making the service more cross-platform by bringing the Google Fit app to iOS.

The health and fitness app will provide a lot of the same functionality on iOS as it does on Android and Wear OS smartwatches. This includes the Move Minutes and Heart Points system, which was introduced to the platform last year as a way to help you stay on track of your goals when it comes to fitness and health. Interestingly, the header image used by Google for that announcement already included a screenshot of an iPhone running the app, but it took over eight months for it to be publicly available.

Google Fit on iOS also works with apps you've synced to Apple Health, so you don't have to set up anything extra in order to log your daily activity. The service will also track your workout sessions regardless of whether you're using an Apple Watch or a smartwatch running Google's own Wear OS.

If you'd like to try Google Fit on iOS, the app is available starting today on the App Store.
