Google Fit users demand functional & visual improvements with more health metrics to match Apple Health

Google Fit is a popular health-tracking platform designed for the Android operating system.

Even though the app is compatible with multiple devices, it works best when used both on a smartwatch and a mobile device.

Using the Google Fit app, one can effectively work on their fitness regime thanks to its simple and easy-to-use app design. It helps one track their activity when out for a walk, or while jogging, cycling, and so on.


The app can also interact with other services to record and analyze one’s activities while working out on machines. However, users are now demanding more from Google.

Google Fit users demand functional and visual improvements

According to reports (1,2,3,4,5), multiple users feel that the app is not up-to-date with new features and is less visually appealing for others.

Some also feel that it lacks several crucial features including the ability to measure basic health metrics such as Body Water, BMI, BFR, Muscle Rate, stress levels, and much more.

People are unhappy because of this and are now demanding that developers enhance the app with more features and a stunning UI.

Google should do something about Google Fit. The app is visually several years behind. And if we talk about the functionality itself, it’s missing a basic metric like stress, not to mention other missing metrics like BMI, BFR, Muscle Rate, Body Water and many others.

“If” @madebygoogle ever design Google Fit this well I would drop Samsung Health on my Galaxy Devices

It is interesting to note that an issue regarding the same has been created on Google’s issue tracker portal, which has received more than 444 upvotes just within a few hours.


There are also suggestions that Google Fit and Fitbit should merge under one brand and work on enhancing the ‘Material You’ design rather than work independently, but not everyone is in agreement.

Quite a good number feel that the app’s UI is old and outdated and needs to be redesigned while keeping in mind the modern-day needs and services offered by its competitors.

Doing so will help Google win the hearts of millions of users and would also help them get an edge over their competition such as Samsung Health and even Apple Health.

Another enthusiast has even gone further to create some concept images representing what the reimagined UI should look like.


We do hope that the tech giant will listen to the demands of these users and work on the functional and visual improvements of the Google Fit app.

That said, we’ll keep an eye on this matter and update this story to reflect noteworthy information.
