We are more and more aware of our health. We try to eat healthy and whenever we want have our vital signs better controlled as well as other health data, something that becomes easier to control at all times thanks to the sensors that make up most smart watches or bracelets or connected health devices, especially if we have to control a parameter due to a health problem.
To control our state of health Google fit little by little they become the best option, because it practically allows you keep track of all health data, and thus have all your information and statistics centralized in a single application to easily visualize your progress, as we will see below.
10 GOOGLE APPS THAT COULD SUCCEED
Your health data in Google Fit
Since the end of last summer, the section To explore
Google Fit allows us manually add most health data, but this section is primarily created for wearable devices or compatible apps that collect and send this health data back to our Google Account. The health data currently supported by Google Fit is:
Statistics Exercise of Google Fit allow us to consult our daily goals, our Cardio points, our steps, energy expended, distance traveled, active minutes, speed, or other data such as step cadence, pedaling cadence, wheel speed or power if we add this data manually or if we have a compatible device that automatically uploads this data to Google Fit.
To follow our Body measurements, Google Fit allows us to manually add our weight, percentage of body fat and the size in order to see the evolution through their weekly and monthly statistics.
In the vital signs section, Google Fit allows us to record and track heart rate, blood pressure, respiratory rate, blood sugar, oxygen saturation and body temperature.
In some health data, such as Blood glucose, Google Fit allows us add details in addition, like the sample source or at what time of day or at what meal the sample was measured. So like that in the statistics we can see that additional information to contextualize the result of this measurement, such as that the blood glucose data was fasting or after eating.
In the section Food, Google Fit allows us to monitor our hydration, by noting the amount of water or fluids we drink throughout the day, or to monitor how much calories consumed, by adding the calories that we ingest in each of our shots, although the most practical here is to use a third-party application to count calories like FatSecret that your data goes to Google Fit if we activate the link. This will make it easier to see the calories, protein, carbohydrates and fat consumed.
To find out if we’re sleeping at recommended times, Google Fit lets us tell you what time we went to bed and what time we woke up. So Google Fit will give us a weekly average of our sleep duration.
Finally, with Google Fit, it is now also possible to do a cycle tracking, allowing you to add the days when there was period and selected the flow level In order to see the weekly evolution and if the rule remains regular over the months.
Delete your health data
Google guarantees that this health data is private for the user, but if at any time we want to delete this information from our Google account, just open any section, and in its menu click on to delete. There we will go to our Google account to manage our Fit data. We may delete all data at once or delete only certain types of data.
