Beginner’s Guide to Google Fit and Apple Health App
Apple Health and Google Fit are some of the most popular fitness apps in the market. Both of them are unique and have lots of great features in them, and today we are going to show you how to set up these two apps and get the most out of them.
How to Setup the Google Fit App and Use Its Features?
Open it or download it from the Google Play Store or the App Store if you don’t already have it. Next, log in to the app using your Google account and submit the asked details to finish the setup.
Once you have completed the setup, the app will work in the background and will track all your activities and the calories that you burned during these activities so that you can measure your performance. You can also add your activities manually to the app. To do this, all you have to do is open the Google Fit app, press on the “+” icon, and then press the “Add an activity” option to add your activities.
You can also set up your fitness goals (Steps and Heart points goals) inside of the app by clicking on the “Profile” option. Once you have set up your goals, that app will help you in tracking and monitoring your progress towards your set goals and will also motivate and cheer you to keep you on track and complete your set goals.
Besides this, you can also track your current activity and get detailed real-time analysis and data from the app about it. To do this, all you have to do is press the “+” symbol and then hit the “Track Workout” option. Now select your desired activity, and the app will start tracking your activity and will give you detailed real-time analysis and data.
Additionally, the app is compatible with many other fitness-related apps, and you can easily sync your data from these apps to the Google Fit app. For example, you can send data from the “Sleep as Android” app or “Sleepzy” app to the Google Fit app.

You cannot take your phone with you everywhere. For example, it won’t be a good decision to take your phone with you when you are playing baseball. But that doesn’t mean that we cannot track our activities using Google Fit during that time. All you need is a compatible smartwatch, and you can easily sync your data to the Google fit app.
Using a compatible smartwatch, you can easily monitor your progress and sync your performance data to the Google Fit app. For example, you can use any wear OS smartwatch or any other compatible smartwatch from brands like Misfit and track and monitor your activities.
How to Setup the Apple Health App and Use Its Features?
Unlike Google Fit, you don’t have to activate the Apple Health app on your iPhone manually. The app automatically monitors your physical activities.
The app has a very user-friendly interface and is very easy to use, and you can easily view your activities data inside of the app. To see your data, all you have to do is open the app, and you will see the detailed analysis of all the data that the app has collected. You can also see your past data using the app. For example, to see your past week data, all you have to do is click on the “Show All Health Data” option inside of the app, and you can see your past data.
You can also add your activities manually in the Apple Health app. To do this, all you have to do is click on the “Add Data” option and enter your activities manually to the app.
Besides this, the app has lots of other great features in it and can be easily connected with many other apps. For example, you can track your calorie intake or store your medical records in the Apple Health app.

Just like the Google Fit app, you can connect the Apple Health app from your smartwatch and get the most out of it.

Both the apps are quite similar to each other in terms of functionality. But the Apple Health app has more features than the Google Fit app, but that does not mean one is superior to the other. Both apps are amazing and can help you in accomplishing your fitness goals.
