Google Announced Android Fit

Adidas, Nike, Withings, Intel, RunKeeper and a variety of other fitness companies are involved with Android Fit. Nike’s FuelBand wearables were specifically given a shoutout on-stage at Google’s I/O event this afternoon, where the initiative was announced.

The Google Fit platform is a set of APIs designed to manage all your fitness tracking apps, sensors and wearable devices. Once you give the app permission it will gather all your health information. You’ll also be able to delete data from the app. Google product manager Ellie Powers described it as using a single set of APIs for all health products, meaning all devices could technically work with all health/fitness software.
