Google I/O is just two weeks away, and the leaks about what we might see are getting hot. The latest leak comes from the folks at Forbes. They are reporting that Google is ready to unveil a new health and fitness tracking platform called “Google Fit.” Like most Google services, all of the data that is collected will be accessible through the cloud. The goal is to standardize health and fitness data on Android.
Google Fit will be similar to Apple’s HealthKit. It’s a collection of APIs that can be used by developers to aggregate health data. Anyone that makes an app can easily plug in some code and get access to powerful health and fitness features. Obviously this will be a big part of Android Wear. Google Fit will likely be an integral part in what Android Wear devices can do. We don’t know much more about Google Fit, but in just a couple of weeks we will learn a lot more.
