Fit is more workout-friendly with its latest update, giving you the ability to start a walk, run, or biking session right from your watch.

Once you have the latest version installed, you can swipe right on your watch look for the app labeled Fit Activity. You’ll see three options: walking, running, or biking.

unch a new workout activity directly from Fit Activity app on your Android ar watch.

Once you launch the activity, you’ll see a timer a notification that the watch has located your G position (if you have a watch that includes this feature).

You can hit the pause button to put the session on hold or also call it off from this screen. You’ll also get a brief summary of the workout details once you’ve finished up. By default you’ll see the total time, distance, steps from a walk or run – biking mode presents the speed. You’re able to do some slight customization here by touching the Change Metrics button to see different statistics.

If you want to check it out, grab the latest version of Fit from the ay Store or A Mirror.

y this matters: This is a nice, badly needed, feature for Fit. One of the promises of a smartwatch is you don’t have to mess with your phone when you want to do a simple comm like beginning a workout. ’s fitness offering needs to keep pace with the likes of MapMyRunStrava, others remaining popular.
