Google Fit is getting a visual overhaul with new widget and Android Wear faces

You'll find more options for setting up fitness goals with additional metrics available to track throughout the day.

Google Fit gets a major makeover in its latest app update.

Version 1.57 keeps a lot of the key capabilities of Google’s health tracking app the same, but the new look makes the experience a little more pleasant inside both the smartphone app and Wear watch face.

You’ll notice the goals and daily tracking screens are a lot flashier, with a new header image and other uses of color to amplify your details. You can add multiple goals in the landing page to see your progress, or lack thereof. The timeline is also easier to read with a darker color for the “active” minutes in the graph.

The floating action button is at the ready to let you add a new goal if there’s something else you want to keep close tabs on.

There are a lot of changes to be found with the latest version of Google Fit.

The Android Wear watch face and widgets also got a little bit of polish. The widget can be customized to show a particular fitness goal, whereas before it would only list your daily steps. This gives you the option to put multiple widgets on your screen if you’re tracking different sets of goals.

The watch face also adopt the color scheme changes found in the main app, with a dark background on the digital and analog versions.

The Google Fit watch face has sharper background color options.

The updates are rolling out now in the Google Play Store or can be found on APK Mirror.

The impact on you: If you like keeping all your data with Google, this is a nice set of updates that of course also play well with an Android Wear watch. There are plenty other fitness apps to be had in this area, so it’s important that Google keeps pace in what should be a rather long marathon of fitness competition.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
